Operation Write Home...

Over the next few weeks, Therm O Web is working with Operation Write Home to support their ongoing campaign in "helping heroes keep in touch with home"

Currently Operation Write Home is requesting holiday cards with the theme of Valentine's Day / LoveTherm O Web would like YOU to join us in creating your very best cards to send their way so that our troops will have beautiful handmade cards to send to their family & friends.  Please visit this link for Therm O Web's details.  By the way, Therm O Web has a special prize package for 3 lucky winners who participate through them.  Check it out!

Also, before you get started please visit Operation Write Home website's GUIDELINES page(pdf) OR this other GUIDELINES link.  They have very helpful requests (PLEASE, no glitter!, card size, etc) in the creation and care of your special card.  I also suggest you take a few moments to peruse the Operation Write Home website, as it is chock full of information on how you can continue to help their cause.  There are also great photos and videos of our troops and how they enjoy the cards provided through OWH as well as a link to their blog and a calendar for card deadlines.

 Here are a few of my own cards.......

Therm O Web Supplies:
Tape Runner XL Permanent
Zots (Small, Medium, 3D)
3D Adhesive Foam (Squares & Strips)

It was a blast doing this in the midst of all the Halloween & fall projects I've been working on.  I made several of each design and kept them pretty simple but I think they turned out cute. 

I hope you'll join in on the fun and create some beautiful cards yourself for our heroes!  Besides, in the season of marking our gratitude for all that we have, what better way to show our appreciation of the troops, their families and all that they sacrifice than by making it just a bit easier for them to keep in touch with each other.

Happy crafting & thanks for visiting!!!  :)
