I am very excited to introduce Charlsie to everyone this week and to be able to share this a beautiful group of her cards with you here today.  Charlsie does not have a blog so be sure to say hello and leave your comments for her here at the end of this post.

Today Clear Dollar Stamps is sponsoring us with a $15 gift certificate! The challenge is open til Sunday night - so CASE one of Charlsie's beautiful cards, share it using InLinkz at the end of this post! A winner will be drawn Sunday night from all cards posted. Thanks CDS!

How long have you been stamping?
I have been sewing and quilting for many years. Have always loved crafting. Started stamping and making cards maybe 6 or 7 years ago.

Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp/craft?
I have a sewing/ craft/ computer room that I do all my crafting. It is small but it works.

What are your favorite stamp/craft products?
No favorite products really. I like birds and butterflies. Also Hero Arts flower stamps. Because I do not have a craft store in Napa I get supplies from www. And they have a websoide every Tuesday showing new products and how to use them. They are very helpful.

Do you have a favorite technique?
No favorite technique but really enjoy learning from OWH tutorials.
Are there colors you love to include on your cards?
Colors really depend on what paper I grab that day. I find it hard to make masculine cards so I try really hard to always add some to the box.

How did you hear about Operation Write Home?
Still have the Paper Crafts May/June 2010 magazine with small article about Operation Write Home on page 14. That is when I learned about OWH.

What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?
What motivates me is knowing how happy a family member must feel getting a really nice card from their love one. I just returned from Florida yesterday visiting our Grandson who is in the Air Force. We were there celebrating his 22  and his Dads 50th Birthdays.

This is a gorgeous group of cards Charlsie! Every single one of these has little details that make it special and you have a great eye for combining colors and patterns. Thank you for letting me share your cards and your OWH story with everyone this week.
