I thought a Polar Party was in order for this World Card Making Day, so I pulled out my Stampin' Up! set of the same name featuring this cute, gift bearing Polar Bear...
This will make a great winter birthday card, too (I just need to change the sentiment). Off-center, "askew," or crooked layers make me feel so much better, as I don't have to worry too much about getting things "straight." The design of my card loosely follows this OWH Bonus Sketch:
I love making cards for our heroes as it gives my obsessive card making hobby a real sense of purpose. The chance I'm bringing a smile to the face of a loved one that receives one of the cards mailed home by one of our soldiers is a wonderful feeling.
Regardless if you're visiting from the hop, or just stopping by my site, you should be able to see the entire blog hop by clicking here to the main site, or on the OWH link here or at the top of this post.
Hope you have a chance to check out the blog hop and get a chance to create & send a few cards of your own to your local OWH shipper! Happy crafting everyone!
