OWH celebrates WCMD w/ a BLOG HOP ( + BLOG CANDY Give-away!)

Happy World Card Making Day 2011!

I'm so excited to be taking part of the HUGE Blog Hop sponsored by the amazingly wonderful Operation Write Home!  There are 150 blogs in this hop and that's a lot of cards for our troops!  As a child of a military family and a brother currently serving, I'm extremely proud to be part of the OWH with card donationson a regular basis.  Their mission is such an admirable task!

Please start here at the beginning of the hop so you won't miss any of the wonders along the way :) 


Also, I will have a little Candy Give-away to one random commenter 
 to thank you for supporting our troops and for stopping by in this huge hop.
Candy winner will be chosen Monday, October 3rd @ 9am EST!
Here is my holiday card to share with you!
It's a little bright, a little Florida Sunshine-y Happy Holiday card, a little non traditional but I hope to that wherever this may go, it will bring cheer and happiness and be as upbeat as I pray they can be during the holidays.



A wee side view :)

Inside of the card :)
Be sure to head over the OWH WCMD post (see link above!)
to see all the participating blogs which will be up all weekend!

To thank you for stopping by,
ONE random commenter will receive this package of Anna Griffin goodies,
in (mostly!) red, white and blue colors! :)
Hugs!!



Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  35. Pink and orange is my favorite color combo. LOVE that you created something with those colors for a Christmas card. I'm soooo going to have to do that. Thank you for the chance to win some Anna Griffin!

  36. Another great creation, Kelly !! I like the non traditional christmas colors-makes it into something special. I also like the sentiment inside- how true !!

  37. So many elements to you car and so bright! What fun!!

    BTW, I always have a box going for extra cards. When it is full, the glitterless ones go to OWH, the sparkly ones go to RMH and those inappropriate for either, get dismantled and are brought to the local library for reuse during their kids crafts
