OWH Memorial Day Bloghop

Hi Bloggers and welcome to the Memorial Day Bloghop for Operation Write Home.  I'm so excited because this is my first bloghop!  Yippee!  It's for such a great cause, too!

My chosen sketch is #83 and here it is:


At the time it was posted, I was not a card making junkie, so it was fun to look at the cards made for this challenge.  I made an AnyHero card.  In the beginning, I was shy about making and writing to servicemen/women that I didn't know, but now that I've done some, I'm getting the hang of it.
Here's my finished card:


The sentiment is from Paula at Handmade by Paula and the paper is from the BoBunny Weekend Market 6x6 paper collection:



I hope you get inspired to make cards for our deployed solders thru OWH!  It's a great community of caring and creative people!

  4. Erika,

    Love this card! Bo Bunny is always one of my favorite papers -- I'm currently obsessed with the Liberty collection. :)

    I've used this sentiment so many times on Any Hero cards, but never as a circular embellishment. Thanks for the idea. I'll have to give it a try.

  6. Great card Erika! I am so thrilled to see people joining us for the first time this year. I agree that writing Any Hero notes can be difficult at first but I know how much they are appreciated and I always feel good when I include some in my OWH shipments.

    The sentiment is actually one created by OWH FOunder Sandy and can be found here: http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/2011/04/anyhero-card-sentiment-back-by-popular.html

    Thanks for joining in the Memorial Day hop and for supporting OWH!
