OWH Finishing Strong Bloghop

 

Operation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, will be closing later this year. All cards need to be sent in by August 1st, so I’m helping to get the word out!
OWH Finishing Strong Blog Hop
Card made with the large balloon from the Simon Says Stamp Balloon Crafts Dies and the Paper Smooches Happy Birthday word die.  Blue balloon paper made with alcohol inks on glossy card stock.

I started making cards for OWH in 2009 just before my youngest son enlisted in the Army.
I started my blog in 2012 and these are some of my past OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop cards.

  1. I like that your card is clean and simple, but yet the alcohol ink technique adds a bit of textural interest. TFS.

  21. Love the subtle texture the alcohol ink adds. Something I rarely (OK, basically never) think to do--use my alcohol inks on glossy paper. Hmmm...I see inspiration afoot! :) Tfs!
