Warm Winter Wishes... 8-)

Hi All! and a Very Happy Friday to you! Today I'm back to share my latest creation and to let everyone know  that there are still 4 more days to help K 'n K Designs raise funds for Operation Write Home! 8-)
For those of you who aren't familiar with Operation Write Home, they are a non-profit group that collects handmade cards (over a million, so far!!) to send to our soldiers deployed overseas.  Some of them are Any Hero cards that we write in to say "thanks for serving!", but most of the cards are left blank so the soldiers can send them back to their families and friends stateside.  It's a fantastic organization!!  But, in order to send the thousands of cards that will go out during the holidays, they could really use some extra funds for shipping, and that is where two digi designers would like to help.  Katlyn, of KnK Designs has teamed up with Deedee Anderson to offer 7 digi sets that are perfect for your OWH cards - or any cards, for that matter!  All of the proceeds for these sets (minus the paypal fees, of course!) will be donated to OWH.  Every bit of it!  You can buy the sets separately or in a bundle - Go check out K 'n K Designs for all the details!!
So without further delay, here's my Cards featuring just one of the Adorable digi sets available to you all, created exclusively for OWH's Fund Raiser.
I printed out my Adorable little Teddy Bear Designed by DeeDee Anderson, onto Flourishes Classic White and colored him up with my trusty Copics of course. My BG mats and layers were made up with a combination of various MME dp's. my Snowy Window was created with he help of my Labels Three Nesties set and a bit of emboss resist Flourishes snowflakes.. First I embossed my snowflakes with Snow Cap EP and then sponged on a bit of Tumbled Glass, and Stormy Skies Distress inks over top and created my window's snowy scene. The rest is pretty simple.. I fussy cut my Sweet Teddy Bear out, and popped him up with a few dimensional. I printed out my sentiment from the same digi set onto my hand cut, inked tag and added a fun little button all tied up with some Yummy baker's Twine from MAD Stamper Finds. 
I sure hope you'll stop by K 'n K Designs to see all the wonderful stamp sets available to purchase to help out OWH keep our heroes in touch with home.
