Aloha! Thanks for stopping by!  Today is a fun day of card making inspiration with the lovely ladies of Operation Write Home.  We are blog hopping and I’d like to encourage you to start at the beginning: http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org
My name is Joscie, and that rhymes with bossy. If you’ve been here before you probably already know this, but if you’re new, here we go. My husband is an active duty Navy Officer and he’s currently deployed on a ship that is home ported in Pearl Harbor, HI.  We have been married for 14 years and we have two sons 9 and 5.  We are very lucky to enjoy emails and occasional chats with my husband, but we love getting mail.  The boys especially love getting notes from dad so i send stacks and stacks of cards for him to send home to us.

Operation Write Home is an organization that collects and sends card for our deployed military members to send home to their loved ones.  I wholeheartedly support this organization and suggest you do the same.  Are you thinking, well that sounds great, where do I sign up?  check this out.

I created a few simple hybrid cards to send in to OWH.  I used Vinnie Pearce’s Toy Box kit to create the card.  One patterned paper, one element.  I printed on matte photo paper, cut, score, fold.  add a stamped, punched sentiment, easy peasy and now some one will eventually get a smile from this card.

In celebration of the blog hop, I’ll be giving away a little Hawaiian Prize Pack.  Just leave me a comment telling me something about yourself.  :)

I’ll pull a random winner on Monday and announce shortly after that.  Thanks for stopping by!

The next stop on the hop is Monica at Little Bit of Life, enjoy!

Love Love and Blog You later!
