World Card Making Day Blog


Woohoo!  The great folks over at Operation Write Home are sponsoring a huge blog hop to celebrate World Card Making Day.  Operation Write Home is a non-profit that takes our handmade greeting cards and sends them along to deployed troops, so they in turn can write a note and send back to their loved ones.

The rules of this blog hop is to make a thank you card using one of the many OWH sketches as inspiration.  One of my favorite, easy to duplicate is Sketch #170.  When I want to make multiples, just like this week's Midweek Throwdown Multiple Challenge, I grab #170!  I love the sentiment too, as I could use it as a Hero card or send it blank for our heroes to use.



I am so grateful for the work of OWH, as it is one more way I can say thank you to the thousands of military heroes who serve and protect the American way!  I say a particular thank you to my son, who is dedicating his life to providing health care to serve our active duty and military veterans.   Best wishes to all, hope you enjoy the hop, I know I will!

DP:  Authentique "Pride" 6x6 
Sentiment:  Computer Generated
Brads:  Paper Studio
