Several Design Teams have come together with the hope of inspiring you to join us in doing a good deed! As you all know, men and women from our armed forces are deployed all over the world. Sometimes these men and women are in places that make it very difficult to pick up a sweet card to send a quick note home. Fortunately they have Operation Write Home (OWH); 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 making cards!!! Yes! OWH angels receive tons of handmade cards from crafters all over the world, which they check, organize and send out to our soldiers.
We would love for you to join us in helping OWH, and thought it would be fun to do a blog hop to inspire you! Design Teams from Paper Temptress, Oozak and Color me Creative have joined together in one amazing Card Drive HOP. You can join in the fun by making a project (following OWH – size and safety guidelines), entering a picture of the project on the hop inlinkz (One project linked per person please) then mailing the project to us. We would loooove it if you could send as many cards as you can by November 7th (we will screen them and send all of them to OWH) . You could win super prizes from our amazing and generous sponsors!!!! You do a good deed and you also can win a sweet gift!!!
Thank you to our sponsors:
I'll be making more cards this month for OWH, but wanted to start out with a card designed for a child. Sweet Pea Stamps has so many darling images and I chose to use Concetta Kilmer's Giraffes in Wonderland digi:
I used Cryogen White for the digi and framed it with a beautiful pearl like paper called Starburst Lichen Glimmer from Paper Temptress
I used paper piecing so as to give the card more dimension and fun without adding too much bulk.
It’s time to HOP around ~ feel free to leave a little note as you pass through the designers’ blogs! Don’t forget to add your project to the inlinkz at the end of the Hop where you'll also find the address to mail your cards. Hop is open throughout the month of October ~ so you'll have plenty of time for designing your cards. Thanks :0)
