A fun Birthday to celebrate

We are here today to celebrate Operation Write Home's Birthday - woohoooo!!  Our friends over at OWH are amazing, and what they do for our troops is super amazing!!

1,749,393 handcrafted cards have been deployed since 2007 - yeah, WOW!

We'd love to have some fun with you.

Use this fabulous sketch to create a card in any or all of the following themes:
  • Thank You
  • Birthday
  • Blank
  • Thinking of You

Upload your card before the time runs out on September 16th and I will choose THREE random participants to receive one of our Circle of Honor stamp sets.  A portion of every Circle of Honor set is donated to the wonderful OWH cause.  If you already own this set, I am happy to change it out for another.

Create as many cards as you like.  You do NOT need to use Paper Smooches (but it's much appreciated) Winners will be announced on Sept. 17

Even better, please send your creations to OWH!  Here are the details

Here is my card using the sketch

I tapped three different chalk cat's eye inks onto the solid star stamp.  It sort of looks like tie dye...or airbrush.

We are thrilled that you joined us today!


  1. Thank you so much for teaming up with OWH! I would love to win the Circle of Honor set. :-)

  2. thank you for caring about our troops and joining with OWH. Sandy does such a good job. Charlsie

  8. Thanks for supporting OWH with your Circle of Honor stamp set! What a great partnership. Thanks also for the digis. I made a card, linked it, and then realized it was the wrong theme. Oops! I guess I'll have to try again this week. :)
