Hey all!  I've got 3 cards to share with you for this weeks OWH Midweek Throwdown!  The challenge this week was to make cards our Heroes could send home to their spouses to show their appreciation.
I Appreciate You
This card was made to be the inspiration for the MWT.  I really like how it turned out with all of the white and a splash of color.  It's hard to see from the thumbnail view but if you click and look closely I used photo paper behind the embossed piece.  A great way to use up the extra scraps.
{SU Supplies Used: Square Lattice EF 119976, Whisper White CS 100730, SU Classic Inks}

You Give Me Strength
This card was my attempt to go patriotic.  I stamped my own background and then used glossy accents to make the stars pop.  It looks a lot better in person!
{SU Supplies Used:  Seeing Stars 115352, Basic Black CS 121045, SU Classic Inks}
You Are So Special To Me
The final card.  I really wanted to try to make a card with a cut up sentiment so this was my first shot at it.  I'm happy with it.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!


  1. Love the MWT sample card and the cut up sentiment is a great idea. All of these cards are really nice!

  2. These all turned out fabulous! Love that first one!

  3. I love all three of your cards Samantha! Thanks for making our sample card for the Midweek Throwdown too :) Thanks for playing in our challenge at Operation Write Home!
