a beautiful day for blog candy

Spring's on its way, and we're celebrating with an OWH BUNNY HOP! My card's a mono- chromatic one using some recently purchased supplies (noted below).

If you've arrived here from Veronica of Circle B Enterprises blog fame, you're at the right spot! If not, why not join us from the beginning of the hop?! The kind folkes at Operation Write Home provide cards for those in our armed services to use to stay in contact with friends and family back home. If you enjoy making cards, chances are you occasionally have an overflow of stash ... well, here's where mine goes! I've a package to send shortly, as a matter of fact. As of 2/28/11, they've sent 855,632 cards!


If you'd like to make cards for deployed heroes to use to write home, please note the following deadlines:
  • Easter cards deadline (March 18th) and
  • Mother's Day cards deadline (March 31st)
Following these guidelines will enable the OWH folkes to get the specific holiday cards into the service person's hands in time for THEM to send them to someone stateside!

Still with me? After all, I mentioned it's a beautiful day for blog candy, right?! Well, leave me some feedback by Tuesday March 8th - including your e-mail - and I'll choose one lucky person at random to receive a $10 gift voucher to My Favorite Things store! I'll contact you IF you leave your e-mail (which I'll need to forward you the gift voucher as well). If I don't hear back from the winner within 24 hours, I'll select another! Good luck to all!

Now, on to the NEXT PERSON IN THE BUNNY HOP - Nichole of My Craft Room Creations ...

The card's deets ...
stamps: Delta's Girls Play, MFT's Die-namics Framed Greetings; paper: A1 Neenah Classic Natural White, SU's Crumb Cake card stocks; ink: Ranger's black soot distress ink, SU's Crumb Cake; accessories: Graphic 45 Trim No3 lace; tools: MFT's Die-namics Framed Greetings die w Cuttlebug
