OPERATION WRITE HOME BUNNY BLOG HOP!

Hello, and welcome to my first OWH BUNNY BLOG HOP!  The hop starts at OWH Stars and Stamps.  If you’ve just bunny hopped here from Rhonda's, then you are in the right place!

Don’t forget the deadline for Easter cards is March 18th, and the deadline for Mother’s Day cards is March 31st.  So you still have plenty of time to get your cards made and posted!  If you need any information about card sizes, shipping info., deadlines and card guidelines, you can find it all HERE.

One of the things I really love about OWH is their OWH HERO'S BLOG.  It’s so wonderful to see and read, just how happy our troops are to receive all these hand made cards.  They also receive care packages, which must seem like Christmas to them.  If you have a few minutes check out some of the stories and thank you notes, it will make you smile, or just bring a tear to your eyes.

                  Duck Day

This adorable image is from Mo’s Digital Pencil, and it’s called “Duck Day”.  This card could be for Easter, or just to say “hello I’m thinking of you”.  The sentiment is a freebie from Create With TLC.  I colored the image with Copics, and used Spellbinder dies to layer the image.  The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Marjolaine Paper Pad.  I used Aleene’s Paper Glaze for the puddles, and a Martha Stewart border punch for the lace.  The three yellow brads on the side of the image are by Doodlebug.  Flowers and ribbons are from my stash.

I am keeping this post short, since there are so many blogs to stop at along the way.  Your next stop is Allison's.  Have fun, and leave lots of love and comments along the way.
