OWH - Veteran's Day Blog Hop!




Welcome to my very neglected blog....

Even though the calendar says November, at Operation Write Home it's time to celebrate Valentine's Day!  Because of the time it takes for packages to reach the soldiers, it is important that the card makers stay ahead of the holidays.  The due date for Valentine's Day cards is January 7th.

Here is a Valentine's Day card I made using a stamp from Outlines.  I really like the style of their stamps.  It was an Outlines stamp that started by addiction to stamping.

It was stamped with CTMH black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Colored with Copic Spica markers and paper pieced:


Have your heard that OWH is one the finalists in Joann's Craft for a Cause and we need your vote to win first prize??  Simply click here and vote once a day (voting ends on December 4th).
