Operation Write Home

Happy Memorial Day!

I am participating the Lawn Fawn Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop.  Operation Write Home is a great organization that sends handmade cards to members of our armed services who are deployed.  The deployed men and women can then use those cards to send home to their friends and family.  If you are interested in participating as well, you should check out their site.

I wanted to create two different cards to be able to send to OWH.  One that was a little feminine and one a little masculine.

The first card was inspired by Sketch B-28, which can be found on the bonus sketch link.

Bee Happy card for OWH from bumblebreeblog

For this card I used the bee and phrase from Lawn Fawn gnome sweet gnome stamp and die set.  I told you I would make a great card using the super cute bee!  🙂 The embellishments are all from Pick Your Plum, including that beautiful washi tape and the bakers twine.

The next card is for the Midweek Throwdown X 3 challenge. I wanted to create a clean and simple card highlighting red, white, and blue.

Take it Easy Card for OWH from bumblebreeblogI used the Lawn Fawn dad’s day set to create a masculine feel.  I also used some of my NEW bakers twine.  Remember the picture that I shared last week?  Its so soft and and thick.  I really love my bakers twin.  Can you tell?

I wanted to create cards that could be personalized by the military person receiving them.  Each one can be used for any event or holiday.  I hope you enjoyed them as well!

Is there a card or theme you would to see me try? Something you’d like to see in my style? Let me know in the comments below, and I’ll give it a shot. Thanks!
