OWH Bunny Hop!



Welcome to this stop on the OWH Bunny Hop! You should have come here from Jinny at Soaring. If you want to start at the beginning, go HERE.





My card is a cute little Easter card that troops can send home to their kids. I used some DCWV papers I have in a huge Spring Stack and added a cute chick and egg image from CHF. I added rhinestones to the eggs and colored them with SU! markers. The sentiment is from SU! Loads of Love Accessories. The blue and pink mats are cut with Nesties scalloped rectangles and the ribbon is some fun striped narrow grosgrain from my stash. I made this card in blue and pink as well as portrait and landscape orientation and I think there are more in my future. That little chick and egg image is too fun to color!




These cards, along with others I have made recently will be shipping off to OWH. I love that I can make more cards than I need and know that they will be put to great use. OWH helps troops keep in touch with home, and helps me fill my need to create.

If you would like to join in and send cards along to OWH, visit their site and learn all the ins and outs. Remember that the deadline for Easter cards to arrive to shippers at OWH is March 18, and the deadline for Mother's Day is March 31. Check out the Stars and Stamps blog for fun challenges, learn how to send cards to troops, and also for their fabulous new Saturday Seminar Series.

**Leave a comment here and you will be entered to win some fun little spring-y goodies! I will draw a random winner on Monday morning, March 7 at 10AM CST.**

Your next stop along this hop is Erica at Inked Up and Ready to Play. Make your way through all 125 stops along this hop and get your Spring mojo in action! It's a fun trip for a great cause. Thanks for stopping by, and have fun!

ETA: Comments are still welcome, but a winner has been chosen and will be posted shortly!

ETA: Winner is comment #53, which belongs to Rhonda Miller! I'll be contacting you shortly, Rhonda! Thanks for visiting :)
