Hi, I'm Shirley. I'm fairly new to making cards, about a year now. And very new to blogging. But I am very excited about both.
You'll find more information on an AWESOME group I'm making cards for. It's called Operation Write Home, OWH for short. They collect mine and many, many other talented card maker's cards and send those to our troops for their personal use to send home. It's give's me a warm and fuzzy feeling thinking I might have made someone smile with one of my cards. :)
Below is my Valentine's Card I made for the OWH Bloghop. The heart pattern is in the CardMaker Magazine, March 2010 issue. I have been very busy making more Valentine's cards since this one. I see pink and red hearts in my sleep. ha ha
Archway Cookies has pledged to match OWH Valentine cards collected by December 1st. So now would be a great time to join our OWH family. However if you would like to send in Valentine's cards after this deadline please have them to a shipper by January 7th. You can find the nearest shipper here.
From my blog you can check out the next place.
OWH's deadline for Christmas cards has passed. So keep any Christmas cards you have made and didn't get sent out for personal use or next years shipment.
To help us help our Heroes I'm asking you VOTE at Jo Ann's, for Operation Write Home, so we can win the 1st prize. It's a contest that we are one of the top three winners. We'd like to be the top winner and with your help we can. The money won will be used to fund the vast amount of boxes sent to our Heroes. Thank you so much!
