Operation Write Home

Last week, my family and my in-laws went to Word of Life Family Campground in upstate New York.  We had an awesome time camping (well, I was in a cabin with a real bed and a bathroom) and even had a little time to stamp.  My mother-in-law likes to make cards, too, so the two of us plus another lady from our church spent a bit of time creating some cards for Operation Write Home.  If you are not familiar with them, check out the blog, it's an awesome service that we, as card makers, can offer to our service men and women.  These are the cards I created and after I get the OWH stamp stamped on the back, I will be sending them out along with the cards made by the other two women.  I decided to stick with the same color scheme for 6 of them and managed to create all 6 using the same two patterned papers (only one sheet of each was used and I still have some good scraps left over)
