Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Hey peeps!  Thanks sooo much for coming by!   Some very exciting news to share.We brought our creativity together in the hopes that we would inspire you to join us (DT members) in doing a good deed! Most of you know our men and women from the armed forces are deployed all over the world. Sometimes these men and women are in places that make it very hard,or they’re far away from where they can pick up a sweet card to send a quick note home. Luckily,they have OPERATION WRITE HOME (OWH). 

OWH is a non-profit organization that sends special boxes filled with cards to soldiers all over the world. How can you help OWH keep the good deed going? By creating cards!!! Yes! OWH angels receive tons of handmade cards from crafters all over the world,then they check and organize cards to be sent out to our soldiers. Take a look at some of their own words about OWH packs:

Now we would love for you to join us to help OWH. We thought it would be amazing fun to do a blog hop to inspire you! Design Teams from Paper Temptress,Oozak and Color me Creative Classroom have joined together in one amazing Card Drive HOP. The fun just gets better!

Now on to my little project:

I used the adorable Karen Middleton image called Love Birds from Sweet Pea Stamps.  Isn't this just the cutest digital image?  I had so much fun coloring this one.  I used Copic X-press It Blending paper and of course Copic markers for the coloring.  The designer paper is from Doodle Bug Flower Box and Heidi Grace Sunshowers paper packs.  The gem with the bakers twine is also Heidi Grace collection.

It’s time to HOP around. Leave little note as you pass by these lovely designers’ blogs! Don’t forget to add your project to the inlinkz at the end of the Hop! You will also find the address to mail your cards at the end of the hop. You can hop throughout the month of October. This way everyone in their own time can hop and join in!


Make sure to add your card to the InLinkz so you get an entry for participating!
