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.

Winter Theme

Operation Write Home allows winter themed cards to be sent in as late as the end of December since winter isn't over when Christmas is.  So a card with no sentiment such as this qualifies and allows me to be able to continue to make snowflake type cards.  This year instead of a GA-zillion Christmas cards I focused more on the more versatile cards to make a dent in this large stash of holiday paper.  I still eneded up making some that will be held for next season, but hey, it is only November and the jingle bells have just started to usher us into the holidays.

ODBD November Challenge

This month's challenge for OWH cardmakers is to use a tool that has gotten dusty or forgotten.  I used my Coluzzle to make the circles which were the perfect size for this free digi from Create with TLC.  The hearts and butterflies are velvet stickers with silver embossing and bling.  Yum!
