Operation Write Home World Card Making Day Blog Hop 2012


Welcome to the Operation Write Home World Card Making Day Blog Hop.  For this hop each participant had to use a sketch to make their card and make it holiday or winter themed.  To find a list of all blogs participating in this hop, please visit the OWH blog here. It contains a InLinkz to each blog.

Operation Write Home (OWH) is an organization that provides our nation's armed forces with blank handmade greeting cards to write home on as well as "Anyhero" cards of gratitude to encourage them. If you are interested in making cards for this great cause, please visit the Operation Write Home webite here.

For my card I used OWH sketch #137 and new Riley stamp, Snow Globe Riley and Snowman. You can find all the past OWH sketches here.



Stamps:  Snow Globe Riley and Snowman (Riley and Company)
Cardstock:  Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Whisper White (SU!)
Misc:  Patterned Paper (Unknown source), Snowflake brads, Snowflake embossing folder
