My New Year's Resolution for OWH

Hello everyone! I can't believe it's been almost 4 months since I've blogged about any Operation Write Home cards! I have definitely been slacking and even though I'm not very proud of that, I am making a comeback and 2011 is going to be better than ever!

My New Year's resolution for OWH this year is:
1) To make cards using ONLY materials from my scrap bin! (embellishments not included, lol) It has grown and grown these past few months on account of me opening my own paper crafts business, Paper Crafts by Turtle but I have also been catching up on scrapbooking a lot too!

2) I made 556 cards for OWH last year, starting in February, so my goal is to at least beat it even if it's only by 1 card! I managed to make 310 for the birthday bash last year, so I'm hoping that's where a lot of my comeback will come this year as well!

Anyway, I have posted here my very first OWH card of 2011 along with a couple more which I just absolutely love! I hope you enjoy and I will be here weekly starting this coming Sunday with sketch challenge #51!

Thanks so much for your time and lovely comments, I have missed them!
