OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop!

memdaybloghop_2014

Welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day blog hop!

Operation Write Home supports our nation’s armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as “AnyHero” cards of  gratitude to encourage them. We are proud to support this amazing company!

I created an “AnyHero” card based on one of the great sketches that OWH provides.

Since I have an ‘oops’ on this card, I thought it would be a good time to add a little reminder about OWH guidelines to keep the troops safe… no glitter!

When I created this card, I completely forgot and added a bit of glitter to a couple of the red stars. I have since removed those and replaced them with regular non-glittered stars. ;)

Happy hopping!

  1. Great use of the sketch! I like the use of the angle. This would be a simple and easy-to-make card…one that would be easy to make gobs and gobs of! Is the use of Glossy Accents allowed to give the stars some shimmer, without the glimmer?

  2. I love Simon Says Stamps and I thank you for your support of Operation Write Home. The card made for the blog hop is excellent – love the placement of all the stars and dots – very patriotic!

  3. I love the red, white and blue. It’s so nice that OWH has sketches because if I’m not making a card for an individual in mind, it’s harder to get going. Thank You to our Troops and Sandy.

  4. This card is perfect I like the way you angled the paper and your non-glittered stars are just the right touch lol!

  5. Love this card (and sketch)…will have yo put this one on my to do list! Thanks for your continued support of OWH and crafting in general. I love SSS!

  6. I do love bright, simple cards like yours. At one time my kids called me the “glitter fairy” but I got tired of finding it everywhere, even on the cat! so I do understand how it would get in/on everything near a Hero.
    But, I’m glad you found your mistake and not only corrected it, but used it as a teaching moment.

  7. Great card – have that sketch on my to do list. Thanks for your support of OWH – they are the best! Have book marked you site to come back and do some shopping!

  8. I like the card-it’s clean, bright and cheerful.

    thank you to Simon Says Stamp for supporting OWH today and everyday-it is noticed and very appreciated.

  9. I really like your take on this sketch! I personally found this one a hard one to use, but I love your card :) Great reminder about the glitter!!!

  10. Good catch on the glitter. I avoid using it on any cards so I don’t accidently contaminate my OWH cards. LOL Love your card – great placement on the stars – not too much – just enough.

  11. Love the angles on this sketch. I appreciate the well-placed stars and gemstones. Where to place embellishments is something I struggle to know how to get right.

  12. This is a great sketch to use for this card. I love the scattered stars and your sentiment is perfect.
