Cards for Operation Write Home

Bonjour tout le monde,
Aujourd'hui, je vous présente des cartes pour une occasion un peu différente.  Je n'avais pas réalisé qu'il y a une organisation (Operation Write Home) qui envoie des cartes aux soldats américains qui sont déployés.  C'est une cause qui me touche beaucoup, si vous me connaissez, vous savez que moi aussi je suis militaire.  Je suis Canadienne mais je supporte quand même nos voisins du Sud, *rire*!!!
Hi everyone,
Today, I want to show you some cards I made for a different occasion.  I didn't know there was an organization (Operation Write Home) that sent cards to deployed American soldiers.  It's a cause that's close to my heart as I'm also military.  I'm Canadian, but I still support my southerly neighbours, lol!!!





Il y a un petit bout de temps, j'ai gagné des images déjà coloriées de LOTV.  Je ne voulais pas vendre des cartes que je n'avais pas coloriées.  J'ai donc trouvé l'opportunité fantastique de les utiliser et de les donner pour une bonne cause.
Tous les papiers à motif sont de LOTV.  J'ai ajouté de l'embossage, des pierres, du ruban, boucle, un charme et des agrafes.
Some time ago, I won some already coloured images from LOTV.  I didn't fell comfortable selling a card that I didn't colour.  So, I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to still use them and give them for this great cause.
All the patterned papers are from LOTV.  I added embossing, gems, ribbon, bow, charm and staples.

For the challenges/Pour les défis:
Papertemptress:  OWH (Operation write home)
LOTV:  anything goes

A+
Brigitte

Your cards are so beautiful, I am sure they will mean a lot to the soldiers and their family. Thanks so much for joining in with us at Paper Temptress and Sweet Pea stamps to give to Operation Write Home. Cheers, Holley

Thank you so much for contributing to OWH from one of your southerly neighbors! (love that)
Your cards are beautiful and I know they will make someone's day to send and receive.
While I was admiring them, I noticed that you're having an issue with your badges/blinkies along the sidebar re-sizing themselves. I found an easy fix for that (after it happened to me too) and you can see the steps for that here:

Please be sure to leave me a comment if this works for you. I'd love to know that I was able to help you!!
