Operation Write Home World Cardmaking Day Bloghop


Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Today I chose to join Operation Write Home to show my support for the men and women who have volunteered to serve our country. Whether they are serving state side or on foreign soil, they have put the protection of the United States and its citizens above their own needs....and sadly the needs of their families! For this reason I pray for them and their families, that they be reunited swiftly and safely. Thank you for being brave and strong and willing to do what so many are not!



For more information on the products or techniques used for this card, please see HERE and thank you for visiting me today!

Operation Write Home supplies handmade cards to soldiers to help them stay in contact with loved ones. If you would like help support their endeavor, please click on the Donate button to the left. To continue the Bloghop, please click on the button at the top of the blog.

This is an adorable card, Susan! I love the papers, the ribbon, the die cut sentiment, everything about it!

I like the technique of outlining the ornament instead of mounting it on another paper. Makes it pop.

Lovely card, gorge bauble

Nicely done! I always like torn edges; and I like the way the striped strip extends beyond it.

SuzAnn said...

Excellent paper combo! Picking papers is always so hard - even when they come as a pack. Ok, maybe that's just me ;-) Thanks for supporting OWH!
