Hi there everyone, it’s Sally here, and today the Operation Write Home birthday bash continues! But before I share my cards, I’d like to talk to you for a minute about the holidays. Imagine you’re stationed overseas. Wouldn’t you just *love* to have beautiful, handmade holiday cards available to send to family and friends? Our heroes stationed around the world sure would! And we’d just *love* for you to send in some holiday cards to Operation Write Home! The deadline for submitting holiday cards to OWH is October 31. Make a holiday card to send to OWH, link to it in the comments ON THIS POST, and we’ll put you in the drawing for a giveaway! OWH does have some guidelines for cards, including no loose glitter - I know that’s sometimes difficult on holiday cards, but it is extremely important! See all of the OWH guidelines here. We’ll draw a winner on November 1 to receive an assortment of cling stamps. Enter as many times as you’d like, the more cards the better! Why do we do this? Here’s why:
“Thanks so much for sending the cards to our unit - especially with the holiday season here. Some of the guys in my unit thought the cards were so nice that they started writing everyone they could think of - including their wives who are always hoping for a letter in the mail. Happy Holidays to you and thanks for making ours and our families’ holidays a little brighter.” -SPC E. K., US Army, Kuwait
And now on to my cards! Even though I live in the world’s hottest climate, I love snowmen. Today I used the little guy from Winter Wishes. This set is absolutely perfect for creating holiday cards for the troops to use - and best of all, OWH gets 25% from the sale of this set! I couldn’t resist using a big ol’ pearly looking button for his bottom. He’s sitting on top of a little snow bank cut from the BasicGrey Aspen Frost paper.
But I’m not done sharing cards just yet! Today is Tuesday, which means I also have a Stamp of the Week card to share! Let’s switch holidays for a moment and back up to Halloween…
Thanks for spending time with me today. I cannot wait to see the links to all of your wonderful cards for our troops. Link often! Support Operation Write Home!
