Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

This is my card for the Operation Write Home Blog Hop.  I hope you enjoy my site.  The main blog for the hop is  This is my first blog hop ever, so I hope it’s successful and is the beginning of many.  I’m so happy that I can contribute to this great organization.

Green/Purple Thinking of You

Green/Purple Thinking of You

This is such a fun and easy card to make.  I cut green DSP paper from SU about 1.75″ by 4.25.  I made the bow out of Michael’s ivory grosgrain ribbon, and then threaded a piece of ribbon through the back knot of the bow.  I secured the ribbon on both ends of the green DSP paper before I attached it to the ivory card.  I stamped the card using  the flourish from SU’s Season of Joy stamp set, and used Old Olive ink.  I used the Sincere Salutations stamp set for the sentiment.  For the flowers, I used the One of a Kind stamp set that has three flowers together.  Then I punched them out with the Boho Blossom punch.  All the products used are Stampin Up.  I also used pop dots on the flowers, which I don’t always do when I am sending the cards to OWH.  And don’t forget to decorate the envie!!!
