OWH .... Christmas cards for the Soldiers

Hi Susan here....

Today over at the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog we have a great challenge started.....We are proud to have been asked to take part in the OWH Birthday Bash during this challenge. OWH is in need of Christmas cards so the theme of this challenge is........ Yep, you guessed it

Full details of the challenge and the very important rules for your card making for this challenge from the OWH can be found HERE.
Operation Write Home is an organization that sends blank handmade greeting cards for all occasions to deployed service members to write home on. They’ve mailed approximately 500,000 cards so far—and are still going strong! Our challenge to you is to make cards to send to them for our nation’s heroes.

Please call over to the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog and join in this fabulous and worthwhile challenge and take a look at all the fabulous cards that have been made by the design team. Our sponsor for this fabulous challenge is The Stamping Boutique, and they are giving two fabulous stamps to the winner of this challenge.

Now to my card for this special cause..... My backing papers are a mixture, the text paper is from a 12/12 scrapbooking pad by DCWV called 'Textprints', all my other card pieces are from The Paper Mill Shop. I have used 3 punches on this card the blue border was done with a Martha Stewart punch, and then I used two different punches for the snowflakes. My satin ribbon is from our local market.

This fabulous image is from The Stamping Boutique and is called 'Snowfriends'. I have used Pro-Markers to colour it.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Love Susan
