Operation Write Home Blog Hop

My card for the hop uses an image
Hello Baby Giraffe from A Day for Daisies.

Design team members from Paper Temptress, Oozak, and Color Me Creative have brought our creativity together in the hopes that we would inspire you to join us (DT members) in doing a good deed!
Most of you know our men and women from the armed forces are deployed all over the world. Sometimes these men and women are in places that make it very hard,or they’re far away from where they can pick up a sweet card to send a quick note home. Luckily,they have OPERATION WRITE HOME (OWH). OWH is a non-profit organization that sends special boxes filled with cards to soldiers all over the world. How can you help OWH keep the good deed going? By creating cards!!! Yes! OWH angels receive tons of handmade cards from crafters all over the world,then they check and organize cards to be sent out to our soldiers. Take a look at some of their own words about OWH packs:
Now we would love for you to join us to help OWH. We thought it would be amazing fun to do a blog hop to inspire you! Design Teams from Paper Temptress,Oozak and Color me CreativeClassroom have joined together in one amazing Card Drive HOP. The fun just gets better! You can join in by making as many cards as you possibly can..the more you create the better your chances are to win one or more prizes.  Here are the guidelines on how to enter and win!  PLEASE remember that… IMPORTANT…. OWH guidelines MUST be followed to be entered to win a prize.
Once you create as many cards as possible enter a picture of ONE of the cards you have created on the hop Inlinkz (at the end) then mail all the cards you created  to the address below.

YES!! You do a good deed and you also can win a sweet gift!!!

Thank you to our sponsors

I am so happy to be part of this hop.  I've sent off cards to OWH in the past, which leaves me with a great feeling.  It's just a small way I can support the troops and their loved ones.  Thinking about the power of all of us coming together fills my heart with joy and gratitude!   I plan to make cards all month and send a box of cards that my card club is making - many of whom have a friend or family member who has served in the armed forces. Perhaps you will consider gathering some friends together and send off a batch yourselves.

It’s time to HOP around. Leave little note as you pass by these lovely designers’ blogs! Don’t forget to add your project to the inlinkz at the end of the Hop! You will also find the address to mail your cards at the end of the hop. You can Hop throughout the month of October. This way everyone in their own time can hop and join in!
