So very glad to participate in World Cardmaking Day with OWH (Operation Write Home). I have been sending cards to the soldiers (via OWH) for the last 4 years, after having learned about OWH in a "write-up" in Cardmaker magazine. I figure making my cards - sharing my cr8've talent - is THE LEAST I can do for the soldiers who sacrifice far more each & every day. My father served in WWII with the U.S. Marine Corps, so soldiers (especially Marines) hold a special place in my heart.
I went a "little overboard" & cr8'd a little something for everyone: Christmas, Birthday, Love. After all, it is World Cardmaking Day!! Much of the papers I used were scraps, making the most of every piece! With that being said, here are the cards I cr8'd for this year's Cardmaking Day & OWH Blog Hop:
|Frosty Nights' Snow Pals Card (using There She Goes Stamps)|
