Operation Write Home

I am currently making cards for Operation Write Home, which sends blank handmade cards to deployed servicemen and women. OWH is an amazing organization that ships thousands of cards each month to our nation's Heroes so they have something to write home on. Please check out the tag on the sidebar for more information on this inspiring mission. Please join me in supporting our men and women who sacrifice for us all.

Eyelets (or Brads) Challenge

The next challenge in this month long celebration is: "We R Keeping an Eye on You!" being sponsored by We R Memory Keepers.  The idea is to use "eye"lets.  Well, my experience with eyelets left a mashed piece of paper and a very flat eyelet. Hm?  I did have these nice tree brads though.  I like them so much I might just have to use them all up making cards for Operation Write Home's Birthday Bash!!! Yay!  I also posted this on Inspired Stamps for the "Missing You" Challenge.  I think our troops need lots of this theme for sure.
The gold frame is heat embossed so it shines nicely without the use of glitter.  And the HoHoHo paper just speaks to missing someone during that season.  Do you think it works?

Very nice! I like the scalloped red background piece and the sheer green ribbon adds a nice sparkle. That mashed eyelet experience reminds me of my results before I got my Cropadile tool. LOL
