Operation Write Home Blog Hop and Card Drive

Hello Hopper! Today I have two very special cards to share with you for the Operation Write Home Blog HopIf you came from Karen's blog you are in the right spot!

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 Boys and Gals from the armed forces are deployed all over the world. Sometimes these men and woman are in places that make it very hard, or they’re far away from anywhere that 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? Making 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 Class will join together in one amazing Card Drive HOP. The fun just gets better! You can join in 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 as you can by November 7th (we will screen them and send all of them to OWH) . You could win super prizes from amazing, super generous sponsors!!! YES!! You do a good deed and you also can win a sweet gift!!!

Thank you to our sponsors

The first card I made is a digital stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps called Norma Burnell's Hoot Owl. I love how this owl looks. I had so much fun coloring all the different feathers on the owl with my Copic markers. I used thick high quality cardstock from the Paper Temptress.



My second card is a digital stamp from A Day For Daisies called Family Ties. I colored all the different owls with my Copic markers, and found a fun coordinating paper. I also used thick high quality cardstock from the Paper Temptress too for this card.


It’s time to HOP around. Leave little note as you pass by these lovely designers’ blogs! Don’t forget to add you 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!

  2. Your owls are fabulous, Samantha! The first one is positively stunning! It looked like you enjoyed coloring it! The papers on both cards are perfect with the owls you made. I'm inspired to try that Sweet Pea owl myself!
