OWH Blog Hop and a RAK

It's time for the Veteran's Day Bloghop at Operation Write Home! If you made it here by chance, you can still get in on all the fun from the start. Just jump over to the Homefront Blog. There you will find a list of all the bloggers participating. Be sure to hop around, there is so much talent, creativity and encouragement to be found! And some prizes, RAKS and blog candy too! If you've been hopping along, you came from Cindy's blog.

All this hopping has probably gotten your creative mojo running strong. So why not take some time to create a card... or two... or a dozen :) for a great cause. Operation Write Home (click that link for their web site) is a great organization that gives support to our armed forces through our creativity. OWH not only sends cards for the troops to use to write home, but also cards to encourage them and thank them for all they do for us. What better honor could one of your handcrafted cards serve than to encourage a hero? So come on, make a card... support a hero!

I'm sending this AnyHero card to express my gratitude and encouragement


They are always in need of cards for general purposes, so that our troops can write home to say hi, I miss you, I'm thinking about you, as well as birthday cards. You can check the OWH website for deadlines for holiday cards too. Right now they are in need of Valentine cards. If you want to send in Valentine cards, they need to be completed by January 8 that gives you plenty of time to still get some made!

I've been busily creating some Valentines for them and will share a few with you here.





I've also got some general purpose cards ready to go with this batch as well.


And one more to share.....


OK - now it's time for even more sharing.... the RAK. All you have to do for a chance to win, is leave a comment on this post. That's it! I've got a RAK package that includes some craft supplies to help get you creating cards and even some mini albums too! You've got until 9am EST Monday November 16, 2009. Check back after that and I'll announce the random winner!

I am so lucky... I get to send you on to the final stop on the hop!! Follow this link to the OWH End of the Hop!

Thanks for hopping along!

  18. This is such a heartening venture. Here in Canada, the painting guild I belong to also creates and sends cards for our troops. They range from painted, thru to stamped and embossed cards in every style imaginable and are received with great appreciation. It's such a little thing we can do for our heroes!
