Operation Write Home Bunny Blog Hop





Welcome to the next stop on the Operation Write Home Bunny Blog Hop. Hopefully you arrived here from Valerie's blog (http://ediehardy.wordpress.com/). If you didn't, you can continue on from my blog and you can still complete the full circle of approx. 132 blogs for this tour. If you would like to start from the beginning, you visit http://http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/


Operation Write Home's mission is to support our nation’s armed forces by sending blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. Operation Write Home will be collecting Easter cards until March 18th and Mother's Day cards until March 31st. They are always accepting cards for birthday, Thinking of You, Anniversary, Sympathy and any other non-holiday occasion. Please go to http://operationwritehome.org/ for more info.

The card I made for the hop is using one of the new stamp set, Nature Walk, from the Stampin Up! Occasions Mini catalog that is good until March. 31. I used the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge #322 (SC322) to make my card. I stamped the main image in Basic Black and colored it in with Rose Red and Certainly Celery.







Cardstock: Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Rose Red.



Ink: Basic Black, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Rose Red


Misc: SU! Botanical Gazette DSP, Basic Pearls and Stampin Dimensionals


I hope you enjoyed my project. Please visit Kapree at http://kcincognito.blogspot.com/ for the next stop on the bunny hop.

  25. Very pretty card. Also, it reminded me that SCS has sketches. I haven't looked at those in a while.

    BTW, I don't think OWH takes sympathy cards as you mentioned at the beginning of your post.
