Helping more heroes to write home

This is the last of my cards for Operation Write Home. I was going to put off sending the box until I could add a few more, but I just don't know when that will be. So, I'll send this box and then work on the next one as I get the chance. One of these days, I'm going to start working on my Christmas cards for this year, too, in hopes that I actually get to send some! And in there somewhere, I need to work on some more scrapbook layouts and cards for birthdays and such. Well, I guess there's just not enough hours in the day or enough visits from Mr. Mojo, either. I'll do what I can and be happy with that.
Anyway, back to the cards. Images are (clockwise from upper left): The Greeting Farm, Sugar Nellie Gorjuss, Elisabeth Bell (for Belles n' Whistles), and Gruffies. All were colored with copics. I try to keep my OWH cards from getting too heavy or too embellie-happy, because I figure it's hard for them to write on both sides of the card if the back side of the image feels bumpy all over. Plus, I also worry about embellie-happy cards getting squished between mailing to the OWH rep, then mailing overseas, then coming back home when the soldier sends it. That's a lot of travel for one little card!
Please consider making some cards to help our deployed military keep in touch with home. Have a fantastic day!

These are so nice! Wonderful projects! I like "thoughtful" design and was touched by the care you took in making the card useful for the soldiers! As a veteran, who knows how important these kind acts are to miliary personnel, I salute you!

Be well,
