A fairly simple card that I'm making for Operation Write Home (OWH). I'm hoping to make some other cards to send off in a couple of weeks. If you are a stamper, you are most likely aware of the organization. If you are a friend of mine checking to see what I've been up to in the stamp room, you may of heard me mention OWH, or perhaps saw the tat Ben gave himself with the stamp. The cards that OWH receives are sent to deployed troops so that they are able to send cards home for birthdays, anniversaries, miss you, etc. Stamps: Just Believe CS: So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum, VV Ink: Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum Misc.: Piercing tool, scallop border punch
Do you remember Aesop’s fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant? The industrious little ant worked all day, every day preparing for the days ahead of him. He was always prepared and never stressed. The grasshopper was a procrastinator. His motto was ‘Why work today when I can wait until I need it tomorrow.’ I try to be that ant and plan ahead, however, deep down inside, I'm a grasshopper. I keep revealing that about myself as I work on projects, have laundry to do or maybe even a lesson that needs to be prepared and I'm off having fun, procrastinating and putting off until I have to do it.
Today I am a grasshopper.
