Operation Write Home- World Card Making Day blog hop

Welcome to the Operation Write Home- World Card Making Day blog hop!  I learned about this hop a couple of weeks ago when I saw a badge on my favorite stamping website, Impression Obsession.  Once I learned what OWH was all about I had to join in.  I have a brother that is currently in the armed forces as well as my dad and grandfather that also served, so this is near and dear to me :-)

Recipe:
A2 card in white.
Me & My Big Ideas - Christmas Carol - red print cardstock
DCWV - The Shimmer Stack - brown cardstock

Winter Wonderland Cricut cart - sleigh @2 1/2"
Elegant Edges Cricut cart - burst oblong background shape @ 4"  (using the fit-to-length feature)

Cuttlebug folder - musical flourish (debossed)

Pop dots, TPC Studio sentiment stamp from Christmas Greetings stamp set, red fibers by The Paper Studio, Glossy Accents (to adhere fibers).

To get to your next stop just click on the OWH badge at the top of my blog.  This will take you to the master list of 156 blogs participating in this hop :-)

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy your weekend and Happy Card Making Day :-)
