World Card Making Day blog hop Operation Write Home


I have been making cards for Operation Write Home for a few years now but have never participated in one of their blog hops before.  I am so excited to be a part of this one!  My husband and both of our sons are all in the Air Force and deployed frequently. So I know how important contact with family is both for the military member and his or her family members. A giant thank you to Operation Write Home and all of the wonderful people who make cards for our military to use to write home, and for the Hero cards they send to show our military men and women how much we appreciate them!
For the card I made, I used this sketch:  




I used the Cricut cartridge Joys of the Season to cut out the leaves.
I just had to show the cute little Santa that I found to hold my cards for taking pictures of them.
And then of course the inside:
Thank you to all our military men and women for their service!

  6. We both used the same sketch and kind of the same theme -- holly berries. :-) The cricut cut leaves are a great touch along with the buttons for the berries. Love the coordinating inside too.
