Operation Write Home
I am currently making cards for Operation Write Home, which sends blank handmade cards to deployed servicemen and women. OWH is an amazing organization that ships thousands of cards each month to our nation's Heroes so they have something to write home on. Please check out the tag on the sidebar for more information on this inspiring mission. Please join me in supporting our men and women who sacrifice for us all.

ODBD Challenge is to make a snowflake card that is not Christmas. I have packed up a lot of my supplies already but had these lovely snowflake stickers still out. The 3 panels were leftovers from some previous cards so this worked out well since the Christmas/Winter paper has already been packed. The snowflake border is a sticker border and the sentiment is slightly popped.

I know I am not posting much lately but all this packing towards the unknown departure date is very hard. And I'm trying to sell off a bunch of stuff from the farm as well. (Ever tried to pack up a farm?) This whole horrible ordeal just really needs to have a light start to show up at the end of that tunnel.
I am glad to have made a least one card recently. I found the flower makings in a box of "forgotten" pre-cut items and the embossing is for the most recent SS dry embossing challenge.
I think I need a real long paper vacation! :)

I tried to make them for both male and female givers and receivers.

Last night I was reminded that I have not cut paper in awhile. I do know that cutting and creating is good for the spirit and attitude so here is one I really had fun making.
I cut the gears out of thin cardboard with the Big Kick and painted them with craft paint. I liked them so much I cut out a bunch to have for making more cards in the future.
