National Card Making Day BLOG HOP



WCDstart

I have been participating in creating cards for OWH for the past 5 years and it is such an amazing blessing in my life. I love paper crafting and creating hand made cards for my family. I have two brothers who did tours in Iraq and what a blessing this would have been had it been available then.  When you create cards for OWH you are helping keep our soldiers connected to their families in a very special way.  I'm so grateful to all the card makers and shippers. 





Take some of your time and share your talent with our military men and women. 

During this hop I will be creating a card for each of the following
Leaving a comment and 
Sharing how you found OWH
God bless our military, our shipper "Sandy" and all the card makers!  Happy hopping and card making.







Remember that the Artiste and Art Philosophy Cartridges are exclusive from Close to My Heart, if you haven't gotten yours yet now is the perfect time to get yours HERE!

Love the use of the negative butterflies image - they pop. I discovered OWH through Twitter.

This is a great card with the negative butterfly images. Your use of baker's twine is neat. I'll have to remember this.

I like your choice of colors and the small pattern on your butterfly paper. I found OWH through an article in a card magazine. I wish it had been around when my hubby was in the military. Thanks for all the years of supporting OWH!

Lovely CAS design! What a great idea to commit to making one card for each comment. I may just have to steal that idea for the next hop. :) Thanks for joining in the hop and supporting OWH.

Simply lovely, Shelly! I like the negative die cut use and really need to remember to use that technique. I learned about OWH from a magazine last year.

Absolutly beautiful! I struggle with "white space" and you rocked it! I found OWH when our daughter was doing a tour in Iraq.

LOVE how you used the negative part of your butterfly diecuts, your color scheme and how the baker's twine mimics the colors of the background paper!
