Thinking of you

When Falls come around, I think of Thanksgiving; and when I think of Thanksgiving, I think of you. Sounds like a song doesn’t it – no actually, I have been reading the children’s book “If you give a moose a muffin”… he’ll want this and when you give him this, he’ll want that, and that and that. So that’s what’s been ringing in my head.

So it is kinda timely that the challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is to make a “Thinking of You” card. Our sponsors this week is MY GRAFICO!!! Yeah yeah yeah!! I love MY GRAFICO images, especially this typewriter one I used on my card this week. (I have my eye on a telephone one I’m going to use next).

Designer papers are from My Mind’s Eye (teal) and Authentique Paper (tan). Sentiment is self-generated from the computer.

Come play with us at Tuesday Throwdown – everyone needs a Thinking of you card and everyone needs My Grafico stamps!! But that’s not all …

This week, we have a we have a special DOUBLE challenge for you!

Main Challenge: “Thinking of You”

Bonus Challenge: Send your card to Operation Write Home

In case you’re not familiar with Operation Write Home (OWH), they are a non-profit organization that provides handmade greeting cards to help American soldiers keep in touch with their loved ones back home. OWH is celebrating its birthday this month, and since it gets its stock from crafters like us, we thought we’d help them celebrate by helping them grow their stock of cards through our challenge this week.

To help inspire you to participate in our bonus challenge, we are offering a special bonus prize this week — a $20 gift certificate to spend at My Grafico! To be entered into this drawing, you must mail your card to OWH, and then designate that by typing “OWH” after your name when you link up.

NOTE: Please be sure to read the card guidelines at OWH before submitting your card to them. In particular, please do NOT use any glitter on your card.
