World Cardmaking Day - Operation Write Home


Welcome!! Happy World Cardmaking Day! I hope you're enjoying the fabulous hop hosted by Operation Write Home!
Ready to get your Holiday cards started? No? ;-) Well, you'll have lots of ideas if you tour the fantastic blogs participating today! Be sure to click the link above to find your inspiration...


Bringing a little bit of Joy!

I make cards for our Troops because its a small way I can give back to those who serve our country... Operation Write Home cards will carry a message between two distant hearts this holiday season - and they will be there the rest of the year too with cards for all occasions! I hope you'll support OWH, if not in making cards (Christmas Deadline is October 31st!) then please donate and help send these cards out on their mission, and spread the word about this great organization!

Thank you for hopping today, Enjoy!

Terrific card! I like how you were able to take the flag banner and use it on a Christmas card. It's something I would think of as summery but you've helped me "think outside the box". Thanks for joining in the hop and supporting Operation Write Home.

Ronda S said...

Loved the way you popped the patterned paper on the red and then used the red ink for the JOY letters! Really makes it come together.

like everyone else said, these colors work perfect! as do the layers, the stamps, and the pearls! but for some reason, my eyes ALWAYS go to the polka dot embossing!!! that just brings the whole card together for me!!
