The Stamping Bazaar: Operation Write Home

Wow, it's Friday already. What a week I'll tell ya! So, let me introduce you to one of The Stamping Bazaar's newest images: Solier Pug! How cute is he?????? This card is very much different, than my typical, but I didn't have any great DP to go with this image. I know, impossible....well, I don't have any army looking DP, so I went with some scraps I had.
Today, is a HUGE day over at The Stamping Bazaar! Not only are the releasing 4 brand new images, but they are hosting their very 1st challenge (with prizes of course). The stamping Bazaar's first challenge is for :

Operation Write Home is an organization that sends blank handmade greeting cards for all occasions to deployed service members to write home on. They’ve mailed approximately 500,000 cards so far—and are still going strong! Our challenge to you is to make cards to send to them for our nation’s heroes.

Please read the basic guidelines here; it’s important to; it’s important especially to remember that glitter is NOT allowed (it’s a safety hazard to our heroes), handmade cards only, and OWH needs A2 sized cards.

“Operation Write Home” needs to be on the backs of your cards—it can be stamped, handwritten, or printed on labels. Please include a packing slip inside your box or envelope, and mail them to any of their shippers listed on the Mailroom page. In your package, you can also include notes written to a deployed service member.
