Be My Valentine Bloghop


Welcome to the next stop on the Operation Write Home Bloghop. If you missed the beginning stop, it’s at the http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/.

Be sure to vote for Operation Write Home on the JoAnn’s Craft for a Cause Contest. Vote every day, please! There’s a link in the right sidebar.

All boxes with Christmas cards are on their way to our Heroes, and now it’s time to focus on cards for Valentines Day. The deadline for Valentine cards is January 7, 2011.

My decision to help with Operation Write Home is selfish. I have a nephew who is in the Air Force and has been station in Afghanistan. I am very happy to report that on Veteran’s Day he landed safely on US soil.

Here is the card I created for this blog hop inspired by my downline Julie Link…. The first picture is the outside of the card and the second picture is the inside of the card.

Materials to create this card include

  • Stamp Set: Wedding Sweet (115466)
  • Card Stock: Whisper White, Real Red
  • Accessories: Brads, Modern Label Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker

Thank you for reading my entire post!! I have blog candy!! Leave a comment, and I’ll choose a winner after 12:00 am Monday. I am a Stampin’ Up demonstrator and absolutely love their products, so here’s what one lucky crafter will receive:

Now, on to the next blog! It’s Lena! Here’s the link to Scrapbutterfly!

Happy Stamping!

  1. Roxie, love the card. I do joined OWH for “selfish” reasons. I currently don't know anyone in the military but am a Army “brat” and a former/ex Navy wife. I know how hard it is to be away from home, in peace times. I can't imagine during war times. So it gives me great pleasure to help in this small way.
    Have a fun day.

  2. Love the simplicity of your card! Hey great to hear about your nephew arriving safe. I'm a veteran and also daughter of career Army Dad and I don't think there's anything selfish about what we're doing at all. I think those of us who have personal experiences can share a lot with others, so thank you so much for joining!

  3. how did you get the ribbon to do that? or is it cs?

    My being part of OWH is selfish too. It saved me during a very difficult time of my life by giving me a focus other than myself.
    Thanks for supporting OWH!

  4. Those swirls say it all! Now that's love! Fabulous card inside & out! Thanks for supporting OWH even if so many of us share your selfishness! My daughter served in Iraq, so I know how much these cards mean to our heroes!

  5. Your card is very pretty and easy for a solider to mail. I'm sure the soldier who receives it will be so happy to be able to send it back home to a loved one, what a wonder project for you.

  6. I just discovered your blog (and am now a follower) and love your creativity! Thanks so much for sharing with us and it's so nice to meet a new crafter who is as passionate as I am about OWH (my husband is a decorated Vietnam veteran) and papercrafting. So nice to meet you! And please feel free to drop by my blog at http://lillianchild.blogspot.com/ sometime and say hi!
