United We Stamp!

Hi all, happy Saturday!! :) Time for a new Wee Memories challenge. This week theme is "United We Stamp" sponsored by Unity Stamp Co. We are doing this challenge in honor of Operation Write Homes and our troops.



I am sure many of you have heard about Operation Write Home. It is an organized effort to support our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. This is such a simple way to show our thanks to those who help defend and protect our nations.

Your challenge is to make cards to send to OWH to send to our troops. I encourage you to send those cards in. You can find all the details and requirements on the OWH website HERE, and a list of cards needed HERE, and the guidelines HERE for your cards and everything you can see on the OWH website.  


Seriously, right now this "Broken China" distress ink is my favorite. I cannot  believe it took me forever to get into distress ink. :) I guess because the first color I got was way too dark, that it kind of put me off. Now that I get color that I love, I am playing with it more.

This card is based on Tiffany's Sketchy Sunday (TG008). Go check out Wee Memories DT creations for more inspirations and I can't wait to see what you come up with. Have a great weekend!

I'm with you, Vera...I, too, LOVE broken china distress ink and I was slow to get into them, too! I love your card, and I'm so happy to see it going for such a good cause. I made a bunch of cards for OWH and sent them in last week...I'll see if I can whip up some more, too. Thanks for sharing!
