Operation Write Home Die-Versions Blog Hop


Welcome to my stop on the OWH Die-Versions Bloghop. If you just came from Lori's blog, you're on the right track. If you would like to go to the beginning of the hop, you can find it HERE.

I'm so excited to be a part of this bloghop to help show the new Operation Write Home fundraiser dies by Die-Versions. I am such a big fan of using die cuts on my cards and these are just super fun ones.

I used one of the cute hexagon sentiment dies with some patriotic papers for my first card


paper - Doodlebug - Stars & Stripes
die cut - Die-Versions
bling - from stash

My second card is an AnyHero card featuring the dog tag die cut. In this card, I will be writing a letter of gratitude to send to our deployed heroes.


paper - Basic Grey - Archaic
stamp - Stampers Best
die cut - Die-Versions
bling - from stash
Versafine and Tim Holtz ink

OWH is giving away some blog candy to a random commenter in the bloghop, so be sure to leave some love at each stop to qualify to win. 

Now it's time to hop over to Archana's blog for some more wonderful inspiration. Thank you Die-Version for your support of Operations Write Home and the men and women serving our country.

  6. I like your second card best. Also useable for other occasions (in the Netherlands we don't "write home")

  7. Wow-Wish I Was With You says it all-the reason we do this. Awesome.

    Until now I only saw the tags as silver and my somewhat noncreative mind didn't go further but the way you distressed these gives it a worn, real look. Any soldier would be honored to receive a thank you on this card. TFS your lovely work.
