Card Inspiration- Operation Write Home

Ever have "card block"?  You know, where you sit down, want to make a card for someone and just stare at you supplies and wonder what in the world to do.  That has been me all month, lol.  UNTIL!!!! recently!  I found a wonderful tool to help me with my inspiration and just have to share it with you!

Operation Write Home is a great site where homemade cards are sent over seas to service men and women.  They in return fill out the card and sent it back home to loved ones.  How cool is it for a little one to get a Elmo birthday card from mommy or daddy in the mail?!?!?   I just love this site and have sent out cards but they have a wonderful link with sketches made by OWH cardmakers.  They do sketches all the time and you can find them all in one place.

Here are a couple of cards I made recently using OWH sketches...

You can find the sketch collection HERE!!!

We would love to see some card inspiration.  My mini challenge for you is to create a card using one of the sketches and post the link in the comments.  Don't forget to post the sketch that you used too! This is a great way to help spread the word about OWH!

PS: Here are the Fall deadlines to ship out.

Sept 16 - Halloween
Sept 30 - Thanksgiving
Oct 31 - Christmas
Nov 30 - AnyHero Christmas

Those are some cute card Luisa! I will try to complete one or a few! I love this idea it really means a lot for those of us who have husbands and wives that are deployed! My hubby is deployed to Afghanistan :( until next May.
