Ok, I admit that I just found out about Operation Write Home and am so glad that I did! What an exciting organization. I already missed their deadline for sending in Christmas cards, but I am working ahead so that I can send in many, many Valentine’s Day cards for soldiers to send to their loved ones back home.
Today is also my very first time participating in one of the Operation Write Home Challenges and I am also very excited about that.
I absolutely love these sketch challenges as they reawaken my creativity and give me great new ideas for different layouts.
I am going with a Valentine/love theme this week . . . as I have to meet the December 31 deadline 🙂 Never too early to start.
I used paper that I had laying around from various places – absolutely love getting to use up those scraps. Some great pink ribbon that I found back in the clearance section of Hobby Lobby for $1 (those into papercrafting know how nice sales are:), embossed heart image on my Cuddlebug. Stamps are from Paperwishes (www.paperwishes.com), pearl embellishments from Want 2 Scrap.
Enjoy and happy papercrafting!
