Operation Write Home Spring Blog Hop!

WINNER WINNER WINNER

Random Generator #24

Merry's Musings said...

Vintage images make the best cards,

 yours is so wonderfully artfully embellished, 

I just love it. Lovely blog as well, yay blog hop! and yay, OWH!

THANKS EVERYONE FOR HOPPING ALONG! 


Glad to see you on ANOTHER AMAZING Operation Write Home Bloghop, there are over 80 stops on the hop as of this writing!  Lots to see...  If you've arrived here from Lora's Stamps, welcome... if not, you might want to start at  Operation Write Home to see all the great blogs!  


On a light blue card I stamped a background image with VersaMark and embossed with opaque embossing powder. I copied one of my vintage postcards.  Using my Xyron I attached Dresden Trim around the edge of the picture, then attached the image to the card.  Final embellishment is a piece of ribbon knotted and attached with a glue dot!  HAPPY EASTER!  



It doesn’t seem like much sending a card for someone to write home... then you haven’t read the OWH website.  THEY LOVE OUR CARDS in Iraq and Afghanistan!  More are being requested all the time. April 1 is the deadline to mail Mother's Day cards to OWH. 


Did I hear Blog Candy... OF course you did, I love giving things away...  leave a comment on this post for a chance to win the paper pack below.  I will have a random draw on Saturday, March, 27th.  That should give everyone plenty of time to get through the hop!  If you are NOT a blogger, please provide your email address like this: name at server dot com and then I can contact you if you win! 



Be sure to leave your comment and then hop on over to Dreaming on Creating blog! I've been checking out her blog and love her digital cards. Click here to keep hopping to Dreaming on Creating!
