Operation Write Home Fundraiser Bloghop

Have you heard of Operation Write Home?? They are an organization that collects and sends cards to the Men and Women serving our Country. They use these handmade cards to send home to their loved ones! If you have loved ones serving you know how difficult it is for them to leave their families. These handmade cards are a special way for them to send home personal messages! Sending the letters abroad is not a cheap undertaking and with the holidays coming up there are plenty of cards needing to go. OWH is in great need of FUNDS to ship these cards. Deedee and Katlyn have graciously drawn up several different image collections for you to purchase.

These images are available for sale at K 'n K Blog HERE. They are $2.00 a set
or all of the sets for $10.00. A 100% of all proceeds will go to OWH for shipping costs.
We would also encourage you to send cards to OWH. You can go HERE to the site for more information but there is one BIG requirement and
that is NO glitter. It could endanger lives!! Also it is best
to make an A4 size (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).

You should have arrived here from the talented Tricia's blog

All my cards are A4 size to send to OWH...
First two are from the Kolar's Care Collection

The card was stitched around, lace added and buttons tied on. The image is water colored. I thought the image made a fun little tag to go along with some dog treats.
