Hello!  I’m excited to be participating in the Operation Write Home World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop!  I’ve enjoyed creating handmade cards over the last nine years.  Donating them to Operation Write Home gives purpose to my creativity because it allows me to help provide our military men and women stationed overseas with a means to write home to their loved ones.  It’s an easy way for me to show support for our heroes who sacrifice their time away from their homes.

OWH will be accepting cards for the winter holidays now through October 31, 2011, so this is a Christmas-themed blog hop.  I used the September Sketch For You To Try layout for my card but shifted the sentiment panel to the right so it wouldn’t hide as much of the cute snowman paper.  The house image with Santa’s boots sticking out from the chimney always makes me smile.

I hope you enjoy the hop and come back to visit my blog again!  Click on the OWH badge at the top of this post to find out where you should hop next.

Stamps: Holiday Lane (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Cardstock: Naturals Ivory, Basic Black (Stampin’ Up); designer papers from Winter Wonderland paper pack (Lizzie Anne Designs)

Other: markers (Copic); white gel pen (Uniball); sponge
