OWH Memorial Day 2015: Finishing Strong!

Operation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, will be closing later this year. It is an organization that has been near and dear to many of us card makers at Words 2 Scrap By!

So, we here at W2SB are helping to get the word out that ALL cards need to be sent in by August 1st!

Please click here to return to the bloghop's home page.

The theme for this year's bloghop is to make cards featuring red, white, and blue. Of course, OWH-sketch-inspired cards are always welcome.  :)
  • Please click here to learn more about OWH's Finish Strong campaign.
  • Please click here to read about OWH's card guidelines. Cards should be A2 size, deliverable via USPS, and glitter-free. In addition, cards should fit the following themes: miss you, thinking of you, love, happy birthday, and happy birthday.
  • And, please scroll down to see what our Words 2 Scrap By gals created for today's hop.
