Operation Write Home "Bunny" Blog Hop



I am participating in Operation Write Home's Bunny Blog Hop today. I have been making cards for OWH for over 2 years now. I am passionate about their cause, and help them every chance I get. My brother, Ryan, is a firefighter in the USAF. He is stationed in Germany with his wife and 2 dogs, but is currently deployed in Afghanistan. He has been deployed since October, and will return to his wife later this spring. Card-making is a positive way that I can channel my sadness about having my one and only brother a half a world away. Thank you, OWH, for all that you do for our troops!! :)

Your next stop on the blog hop is: Donna Inks

The sketch is from OWH Stars & Stamps.

RECIPE:
STAMPS: PTI Take Three Spring
INK: Early Espresso, Baja Breeze
PAPER: VV, Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette
OTHER: Swiss Dot EF, PTI Take Three Die, Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon

  29. Love your spring card!

    Let your brother know about AnySoldier.com. I've just gotten involved with them by following several links that started at OWH. Just another way I can say thank you to our troops for their sacrifices. Service men and women can request care packages with specific items in them. There is a link on my blog at http://allisonscreations.blogspot.com
