Operation Write Home World Card Making Day Blog Hop


Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoy the card I'm sharing with you today, and those of my fellow Operation Write Home bloggers.  When you are ready to go to the next blog, click on the banner above to return to the main page!

The theme for our hop is a wintry card, based on a sketch.  I chose to use Operation Write Home's Sketch #115 for my card.  Here is the sketch:

 

And here is my card...(inside sentiment is a Stampabilities Stamp that reads "you're a wonderfu friend".
Sketch: Operation Write Home, Stamps: Stampendous CRS2065 Angel Kisses, Express-It White Blending cardstock, Echo Park Very Merry Christmas DP, Deco Art Glamour Dust Glitter, Dimensional Foam, Stampabilities, Tombow Multi Glue, Perfect Layers Rulers

Operation Write Home is a way for you to help our service men & women connect with their loved ones at home with handmade cards.  Hopefully, we lift some spirits, of our heroes, & of their loved ones who miss them so much.  Having a twice deployed son, and a son-in-law that is currently serving his third deployment, this organization has a warm & fuzzy place in my heart!

Thanks for hopping with us today!
To the men and women who have sacrificed so much so that we might have freedom, I pray that God will bless you and protect you as you are serving your country, so far from your loved ones.

Happy World Card Making Day!
Patti J.
