OWH Finishing Strong Bloghop


 “Operation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, will be closing later this year. All cards need to be sent in by August 1st, so I’m helping to get the word out!”

I am posting my card using  OWH Sketch #254 .  You can check out all the OWH Card Sketches HERE.




I will miss making cards for our troops for OWH.  I am sure there are other places that can use my cards. 
 I will be researching and looking for new opportunities to craft for a cause!
To get back to the Blog Hop Linky just click on the Finishing Strong Photo above.
Happy Crafting!

  34. I'm not great a coloring and I'm not always in mood for coloring. I'm a DP addict and love sentiment stamps (can never get enough of either) and this type of design is my cup of tea...
