OWH Blog Hop



Welcome to the Operation Write Home World Cardmaking Day Bloghop! The theme is Christmas cards. Have you started making yours yet? Hopefully you will get a jumpstart on your mojo while cruising through the blogs on this hop!

I love that OWH sends card to troops to help them keep in touch with their loved ones. It makes me feel great that my craft has a purpose. There's no way I could send all the cards I make, and I love that they are going to good homes and spreading joy!
I should have titled my post "Ode to Cindy", since the papers were all passed on to me from my friend Cindy at Creating With the Heart. The sentiments are all from Verve, as well as the mittens, which are paper pieced. The bramble wreath (from Memory Box) is such a pretty stamp, I couldn't resist using it a couple of ways. The ornaments are Stampin Up! Colors are Sage Shadow and Cherry Cobbler. The embellishments are a mix of simple punched circles and red and white pearls.

Happy Hopping and Thanks for Looking!
