Hi…welcome to my little stop on this amazing bloghop! For those of you arriving from Kristen’s blog “KAH-Wink-E-Dink Digi Stamps,” welcome and I hope you took some time to look around — she has some adorable digital stamps and VERY cute cards! If you’re stumbling onto the hop right now, you might want to start at http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org to see all the great blogs!
I have said it before, but I will say it again — I am absolutely thrilled to do my small part for such an amazing organization — 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. I am an avid card maker and I always have more than I can use for family and friends. I love to check out the website and the blogs (www.operationwritehome.org) – please take the time to check it out — the soldiers that the cards go to are so grateful and it definitely inspires me to jump into action to do whatever I can for these men and women serving our country!
And, if you ARE inspired, please consider making cards (or having your craft group, school class, or scout troop make cards!). Volunteering for this organization is easy — you can do it whenever you like and you can wear your jammies! There are only a few basic rules for cardmaking for OWH — no glitter (it can make soldiers visible at night), the best size that allows the most cards into a box is 4.25″ x 5.5″, general card themes (I love you, hello, miss you) are best, and cards must be handmade. You can find where to ship the cards — it can be as few as one — on the website.
Enough about me! After you leave your comment, hop on over to JenMarie! Her cards are AMAZING and her stamping is really cool! Click here to keep hopping — http://taylormadebyjenmarie.blogspot.com/2010/05/memorial-day-owh-hop-giveaway.html
