Operation Write Home


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.
