A few cards

Its been a long time since I got a box together for Operation Write Home.  I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I have Mothers and Fathers Day cards that I never sent.  I got busy looking for a job and eventually starting a new job that I never got enough together to send a box.

I've had a recent jump in creativity and I pulled together almost 100 cards (some old, some new) to send off to OWH.

Some of the last batch I added to the box.

Papers are all remnants from the Echo Park Summer line from last summer.  Stamps are new from Hero Arts/Studio Calico.  I made some with the many sun flair buttons I have and some with an Epiphany Crafts button.  The bottoms have the burlap string from the Stringery shop.

If you're a card maker, OWH is always looking for cards.  If you aren't a card maker, you can always help with a donation for shipping.  The shippers have to pay for shipping and I know they are always needing donations to cover that.  With each box I ship, I send in a donation to cover shipping a box to the troops.

Cards were all based off this card idea I found on Pinterest:


  1. Love your your bright your cards!

  2. These are great! I love to see cards in a series like this. :) It's such a great cause, too!

  3. I like your version much better! A great way to use up scraps.
