Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


What a great service this organization does for our Heroes! I’ve long been involved with sending cards to soldiers and I’m glad to provide cards to OWH. They’re so organized, helpful and connected! I love the shout-outs and videos they share every week. Thanks for doing such a GREAT job OWH team!

Here is the OWH main site address: Operation Write Home

And to the blog address where the HOP starts: Operation Write Home Blog

Here’s my AnyHero Card (#10 business envelope size). Since I’m not using the recommended size for the OWH cards (which are A-2, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ folded), I’m including an envelope too.

Everything BasicGrey!

Here’s a bevy of Valentine’s Day cards that is sure to grow today as I make more cards!

Embossing Powder

Remember that the OWH recommended size is A-2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ folded), but if you use other sizes for cards, please include the envelopes.

  • Your cards are beautiful. I love embossing powder. I am new to making cards, thanks to OWH, and I think embossing is an easy skill to make a card pop. Coloring and shading scare me…lol. Thank you for supporting OWH.

  • Great cards and thanks for supporting OWH. My fave thing about embossing powder is that it never fails to amaze my husband & it illicits and ‘oh, that’s as nice as a card from Hallmark’ from him.

  • my favourite thing about embossing powder is how i glow after i use it and it is not a glow of pride but literally i wear embossing powder on my fingers, my face, my dog, my floor! but i do love it and only have two colours so i would be thankful if i win but i am more thankful for people like you and your generous heart
