Miss you - Operation Write Home Blog Hop


We brought our creativity together in the hopes that we would inspire you to join us (DT members) in doing a good deed!

Most of you know our men and women from the armed forces are deployed all over the world. Sometimes these men and women are in places that make it very hard, or they’re far away from where they can pick up a sweet card to send a quick note home. Luckily, they have OPERATION WRITE HOME (OWH). OWH is 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 creating cards!!! Yes! OWH angels receive tons of handmade cards from crafters all over the world, then they check and organize cards to be sent out to our soldiers. Take a look at some of their own words about OWH packs:

Now we would love for you to join us to help OWH. We thought it would be amazing fun to do a blog hop to inspire you! Design Teams from Paper Temptress,Oozak and Color me Creative Classroom have joined together in one amazing Card Drive HOP. The fun just gets better! You can join in by making as many cards as you possibly can..the more you create the better your chances are to win one or more prizes.  Here are the guidelines on how to enter and win!  PLEASE remember that…IMPORTANT….OWH guidlines MUST be followed to be entered to win a prize.

Once you create as many cards as possible enter a picture of ONE of the cards you have created on the hop Inlinkz (at the end) then mail all the cards you created  to the address below. Send as many cards as you can create so you have the best chance possible to win one or more of the 14 fabulous prizes by November 7th.

YES!! You do a good deed and you also can win a sweet gift!!!

Please visit the Hero Blog to see how much they appreciate the cards.

Thank you to our sponsors-

 
Okay, and now, here's my card to share:
 
 
For my card today, I colored up this adorable image from Tiddly Inks called Thanks Fairy Much.  She was so much fun to color.  Of course I used my copics, here are the copics I used:
 
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Pinks: RV000, R81, R83, R85, R89
Blues: BV000, BV01, BV05, BV09
 
My DP is from MME.  Of course, for OWH, the cards cannot be bulky so I had to keep this card simple without my usual embellishments :)  I just added a simple die cut from a Memory Box die and a sentiment from an old clear set.  Here are a couple more pictures:
 

 
 
What do you think?  Well, that's it from me today. 

Now it’s time to HOP around. Leave a little note as you pass by all these lovely designers’ blogs! Don’t forget to add your project to the Inlinkz at the end of the Hop! You will also find the address to mail your cards at the end of the hop. You can Hop throughout the month of October. This way everyone in their own time can hop and join in!

Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Your next stop on the blog hop is the amazing Melanie.  Here is the entire blog hop order in case you get lost:
