Operation Write Home - Birthday Cards



This week Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle Saturdays (SSDS) is joining some of the other challenge blogs in helping get cards to our soldiers through the efforts of Operation Write Home (OWH). Here is a little bit about OWH:

"OWH supports our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. Our 'birthday' (anniversary of our official registration as an org) is Sept 12th — but we're stretching the party to last all month!


Operation Write Home began in 2007 with just a few cards made by friends on a message board; what began as an outlet for a hobby has become a much larger mission to help heroes keep in touch with home - and the effort has been joined by thousands of cardmakers!"

So...the challenge this week is to make birthday cards and then please mail them to the address indicated on the SSDS blog. Our sponsor this week is Craft Brulee who is offering the lucky challenge winner a $10 gift certificate. Please help to support this wonderful cause.  Thank you!

I used Copics to color my image in the fall colors of  purple and red and green and gold...
