OWH VCMP

Welcome! I am overjoyed that you are here to join in the celebration for OWH's birthday! You show your support for our troops and OWH when you create wonderful cards but how about kicking it up a notch? Create a card with elements that represent each letter of Operation Write Home!
Can you see my homage to OWH?

O~ there are an odd number of octagons and an odd number of rhinestones
W~ warm winter wishes and a woolen hat and scarf,  and the star is mounted on wood
H~ On his head is a hat and he is happy and a tiny bit husky and even though I think those are cranberries- I could pretend they are holly berries!
And as a bonus- I have 1 more O---and ornament on the inside made from honeypop paper! Oooooh- don't you love when there is a surprise inside the card! (This card gets put entirely inside the envelope!)


I used Inky Antics stamps and honeypop paper, Copic markers, Spellbinder dies,  SU punches,Queen and Co gems, and papers from Bazzill, MME, American Crafts and SEI.

Do you need help and some hints, some words to get your creativity into overdrive? I bet if you look at your crafty supplies you will find lots of ways to put a little extra OWH into your cards! It can be in the sentiment, the theme- whatever works for you!

O- orange, ombre, orbit, outer space, over, orangutan, old, oink, one, otter, octopus, owl, oval, whiskers, wobble
W- wagon, wheels, watch, wonder, wag, worm, world, walrus, whale,  wolf, white, wreath, window, welcome, wings
H- hand, heart, hi, hello, howdy, hot air balloon, hero, house, harvest, hugs, helicopter, horse, HO-HO-HO

I hope you have fun with the challenge and share your card with us at the link below! And if you would like to win this very cool tool set by WRMK please leave a comment and a way to reach you- and I will draw a winner on Sept 8, 2013.

  10. That was a way fun challenge, and I LOVE the way you interpreted it! (I never would've thought of going with a snowman for this one!) And I laughed about the "husky." It was also one of the few times that I actually had something in mind I could use as soon as I saw it. Which is very seldom the case. Thanks for hosting this challenge!

  12. Just goes to prove crafty people think outside the box!
    I too laughed at the "husky" comment - perhaps he needs some "toughskins" jeans?? LOL. Love your color pallet. Thanks for supporting OWH.

  25. What a fabulous card with some great ideas to represent OWH! I'm partial to that "husky" dude on the front. :) I got a late start, but at least I get to see lots of great cards from some uber taleted OWH supporters! Thanks also for the chance to win the WRMK tool kit...I haven't seen it before, but it would be perfect to take along when making cards with others.

  49. I had to think about this one, but once I checked in the box of fall images there were the ORANGE pumpkins in the WHEELBARROW at HARVEST time. Thanks for this challenge! It's fun to see all the thumbnails and try to figure out each person's OWH.
