We brought our creativity together in the hopes that we would inspire you to join us (DT members) in doing a good deed! Most of you know our men and women from the armed forces are deployed all over the world. Sometimes these men and women are in places that make it very hard, or they’re far away from where they can pick up a sweet card to send a quick note home. Luckily, they have OPERATION WRITE HOME (OWH). OWH is a non-profit organization that sends special boxes filled with cards to soldiers all over the world. How can you help OWH keep the good deed going? By creating cards!!! Yes! OWH angels receive tons of handmade cards from crafters all over the world, then they check and organize cards to be sent out to our soldiers. Take a look at some of their own words about OWH packs:
Now we would love for you to join us to help OWH. We thought it would be amazing fun to do a blog hop to inspire you!

Here's my card for this blog hop using a wonderful stamp that was donated by Sweet Pea stamps. I made this great Birthday card. I have put dual sided white paper inside this card, so that the soldier will be able to write on the inside of the card. The gorgeous papers used here were donated by Paper Temptress. This wonderful image is called Birthday Angel from Joanne Schempp
I will be sharing more cards that I made for the soldiers at different times during this month as a reminder to you to keep making cards to donate to the troops. I have some wonderful stamp images donated by Floppy Latte designs as well as a Day for Daisies to share. Keep an eye on my blog for these!
It’s time to HOP around. Leave little note as you pass by these lovely designers’ blogs! Don’t forget to add you project to the inlinkz at the end of the Hop! You will also find the address to mail your cards at the end of the hop. You can Hop throughout the month of October. This way everyone in their own time can hop and join in!
