Hello, Friends!  I made a card using sketch #205 over at Operation Write Home.  They also have a request for cards made using penguins - Operation Penguin - for one of our Generals.

  • Mat 2 (solid brown border) = 1" x 5.5"
  • Mat 2 (yellow polka dot border) = 1" x 5.5"
  • Mat 3 (yellow border) = .75" x 5.5"
