It doesn't get much bigger or better than that, my blogging friends...
What an incredible day--card-making going on all over the world!
And why do we love making cards?
Because our recipients know the hand-made greetings convey our thoughts, love and warmest wishes.
(and just maybe because we like our hands sticky and inky!)
I am VERY pleased to be participating in this hop, organized by
This is a most worthy cause--Operation Write Home collects and sends hand-crafted cards to armed forces members, stationed all over the world, so they can send wishes to their loved ones back home. I feel an even greater connection now as my son joined the Canadian Armed Forces this year. There is no equivalent organization in Canada per se, but if you contact me I can put you in touch with the grassroots group doing the same thing.
Anyway, on to the blog hop!
Choose an OWH sketch.
Create a "thank-you" card using the chosen sketch.
Encourage hoppers to leave some love (comments) and continue hopping.
Off you go--there will be HUNDREDS of cards for you to admire, CASE, and comment on. You might also want to consider supporting OWH. They are always in need of more cards and $$ for postage.
What a great day, eh?
Especially happy crafting,
