Hey there!! If you are coming from PaperAddict Catherine, then you are in the right place today!! We are hopping in support of Operation Write Home, which is a fantastic organization that not only sends cards of gratitude to encourage our nation's armed forces, but also sends blank greeting cards so that they may send cards home to their loved ones.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, and would like to start the blog at the top, head here to OWH Stars & Stamps to get started.
Now, if you'd like to become involved, that would be fantastic! But - the Christmas deadline has already passed, so they're asking for Valentine's Day cards. Yes, already. It takes a while for the wheels to turn and for cards to get to OWH and then out to our troops. It's not like heading to Hallmark or even just down to Michaels to pick up supplies and then sending your card to Aunt Bertha in Toledo. It takes a lot of time and effort on the part of everyone behind OWH - and in fact, if you can find it in your hearts to do so, please go vote daily at JoAnn Fabrics Craft For A Cause. It would really help.
The deadline for OWH to receive Valentine's Day cards is January 7, 2011 - so it'll be here sooner than you think.
I used the sketch for Our Craft Lounge DT Sketch Challenge #39 and the colours from Color Throwdown #118, and Toni's VSN challenge to use a line art image and silver for Optimism. I don't know much that is more optimistic than Valentine's Day - except maybe a new baby!
I've got a little blog candy to offer. Please leave a comment and tell me your favourite stamp company. If you'd like to become a follower, I won't complain.
Next on your trip is Giselle at Cross My Heart Papercrafts. Have a great day!!
