Pile It On - Operation Write Home

This is a very special challenge at Pile It On this week. We are working alongside Operation Write Home to provide handmade cards for our troops overseas to send home to their loved ones. There are guidelines that you have to follow to make these cards so this week the team won't be showing their sparkle as glitter is a big No No but we still made some fabulous samples for you!
OWH accepts all types of cards but are especially looking for Birthday, Anniversary or Christmas cards at the present time so that is what we are asking you to make this week.

Challenges:

A Crafty Little Place - Sketch
Totally Papercrafts - Go Dotty
Stamp Something - Spots and Stripes
Ooh La La - Stripes
Timbro Scrapmania - Anything Goes
Fab N Funky - Anything Goes
Gingersnaps - Punches
Paper Pretties - Brads
Lili of The Valley - One for The Boys (with a Lili image)
Karners Challenge - Card for A Boy
Going Grey - Card for a Child
Incy Wincy - Celebrate
Pennys - Birthdays
Creative Cottage - Celebrations
Paper Romance - Clean and Simple




Card Recipe:
Image - Lili of The Valley
Paper- DCWV from years ago!
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment - 7 Gypsies
Border Punch - Martha Stewart





These two little guys look so happy to be sharing a quiet moment together.
We'd really like you to make a card or two for Operation Write Home too and if you send them to Dalis at Pile It On you'll get a little RAK for all your hard work.
All the details are on the challenge blog about where to send them.
