Still CASEing Darlene - She Does Such Great Work and National PTSD Awareness Day

Today's card is an attempt to copy Darlene's card that you can see here:  Masked Silhouette

Fortunately I had the stamp.  I did use different colors of Tim Holtz Distress Ink, but only because I didn't have the colors she used.  They are now on my list of things to buy.  :-)  I used Dusty Concord, Broken China and Peeled Paint.  I added sewing on the border and punched the corners with a Corner Chomper - the stub corner.

Find someone to stalk and get to making those cards.  If you find you run out of people to send them to - send them to OWH where they will be sent to our troops serving away from home.  They use these cards to keep in touch with their families.

Also I wanted to let you know it is National PTSD Awareness Day.  Not only does OWH accept blank cards, they also send Anyhero mail to our troops to offer thanks and encouragement.  These letters and cards let our troops know that someone does appreciate the sacrifices they are making for us.  You can find out more about PTSD and Anyhero letters on Sandy's Blog.

Have a great day and be inspired.



  1. Your inked background is beautiful! Such a pretty card!

  2. Thank you. I am on the hunt for the colors that Darlene actually used which includes Shabby Shutters. I ran across it one day but didn't get it - I wish I had since it has been hard to find. :-)
