Hello and welcome to the Operation Write Home Finishing Strong Blog Hop! With the help of volunteer card makers around the country, OWH has sent over THREE MILLION cards to our deployed Heroes to write home to their loved ones!!!
Operation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, will be closing later this year. August 1st is the absolute last day that OWH will accept cards so if you've been working on a box, do not hesitate to get it in the mail!
I want to give a big shout out to Sandy Allnock, founder & Executive Director of OWH.
She saw a need and made it happen. I can only imagine how many countless hours she has put into this project. Not only has she mailed 3 million cards, she has taught me how to be a better card maker. By posting card shares, tutorials, challenges and fresh ideas I have learned so much about creativity and card design. I will continue to be inspired through her personal blog. If you haven't been there you must check it out. She is the Queen of Copic Markers and has some amazing things to share so bookmark it and check it out after the hop! Thank you Sandy....for helping us grow creatively, for helping us create millions of smiles around the world but most of all for the sacrifices you have made personally to bring this to fruition. You will always Rock in my book ((hugs))
The theme for this hop is red, white and blue. I am keeping this as short as possible because I know you have a lot of hoppin' to do so if you are interested in any of the products I used, ask me in the comments and I will get back to you.
