Featured Cardmaker: Cara S., Phoenix, AZ

Hello everyone! If you need a break from the craziness of a busy holiday season grab a cup of your favorite beverage and take a look at these beautiful cards made by Cara, this week's featured cardmaker. Cara blogs over at Crafting Adventures where you will find more of her fabulous work, so extend your break time and hop over when you're through here. You can of course leave a hello and a comment for her here at the end of this post too.

How long have you been stamping?
Since I was a kid...I have a couple of stamps I have had since about age 10. I really got into it though about 10 years ago.

Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp/craft?
Yes! I have a very supportive husband that has made me a wonderful space in our family room so I can leave stuff out. Before, it would be taking over the kitchen table for days at a time.

What are your favorite stamp/craft products?
Ribbon! I am a self confessed ribbon addict! Next to that, I don't know how I survived before my Scotch ATG and Copics.

Do you have a favorite technique?
Blending Copics on larger images and using Glossy Accents.

Are there colors you love to include on your cards?
All of them...I go through different moods with the seasons.

How did you hear about Operation Write Home?
I heard about it on a website (I forget which one).

What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?
I am so appreciative of the sacrifices that our men and women in uniform as well as their family and friends make every day. When I heard about OWH, I was so excited to see that there was a way for me to take something I love doing and turn it in to something meaningful for this very special group of people.

I love your kitty and flower cards. Two of my favorite subjects. I love my copics too, it's hard for me to make a card without coloring something.

Cara - your cards are absolutely beautiful! I enjoyed learning about you - and that there was a fellow OWH'er in Phoenix (I am in Peoria). Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.

Great cards, Cara! I really like your use of embossing folders and LOVE the "pinwheel" design that you embossed. That is a great effect! Thanks for sharing your cards.

Cara, these cards are all so cheerful and bright it's hard to pick a favorite! The "Happiness Always" particularly draws my attention because I like to make full use of nicer papers and it's a perfect way to nicely use scraps. I'm going to add it to my "to be cased" file. Thanks for letting me share your cards with everyone this week. Happy Holidays!

Wonderful cards, Cara.
I especially liked the "Happiness" card. A great way to use up all the scrap pieces of patterned paper.

Cara, I love each one of your cards so much I can't choose a fave--but I love how you tied the tiny ribbon around the flower vase! Thanks for sharing all these creations!
