Hello everyone. We are so thankful For heroes.
Today we bring 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 Boys and Gals from the armed forces are deployed all over the world. Sometimes these men and woman are in places that make it very hard, or they’re far away from anywhere that 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? Making 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.
Would you like to see how happy you can make a hero?

eros..that is what I had in mind when I created this projects to share with you. I hope these cards will be a little way to say to each one of them THANK YOU for your service. Thank you for your commitment to freedom and keeping us safe.
The first project is quite simple I colored a Gilli soldier image with copics and added a few layers with PaperTemptress papers (Safari Brown Skinny Columns, Cryogen paper and Poptones). A little punch (Martha Stewart) to frame the image and a touch of distress on the edges to give a nice touch. To bring some more color I used some green washi tape from the Dollar store. The sentiments are stamps from dear lizzy and amy tangerine.
Since I know some of us do not use copics I created this second project by just using different washi tapes and beautiful paper from Paper Temptress (Pop Tones and Heavenly White. Hello stamp by studio g. Vavoom you are done with a sweet and good quality card .
For the crafters that are just starting coloring, this one you could do with any marker or color pencils…cut a few little hearts color to match. Add strips of cute washi tape and add to a base layered with colorful papers (Papers from Paper Temptress, Starbust Glichen Glimmer - the blue has a shimmer to die for, Antique gray linen and Butternut treasures). Specialty papers with textures will add interest to the card without adding bulk to the envelop!
I hope these projects will inspire you to create lots of cards of your own to enter this hop/card drive!
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 can Hop throughout the month of October. This way everyone in their own time can hop and join in!
Please now go have some fun and be inspired by no other then
OWH founder & amazing designer!

Your military image is great. It's fun to washi tape used. I have a bit of it but haven't found the right card to make, will try out the simple one with the hearts. Thanks for the ideas.
Very cute cards! I love all the materials and techniques you used! Amazing job!
