Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Good morning friends!!

Operation Write Home (OWH) is having a fundraiser. They are a not-for-profit organization that collects and sends handmade greeting cards to American soldiers so they can stay in touch with their families. They need to raise $13,000 to cover holiday shipping costs.

Two stamp illustrators, Katlyn from K ‘n K Stamps and my friend Deedee Anderson, have kindly designed 7 new digi sets exclusively for this cause. Each “set” includes an image and some greetings, in both JPEG and PEG file formats, all in a zip file.

100% of the proceeds from the sales of these stamp will go to OWH. These sets are available for just $2 each or get all for just $10. You can buy them at the K ‘n K blog (not the store) and all purchases will be emailed out within 24 hours of payment clearance.

Here is a sneak peek of some of the digis for sale:

Not a card maker? Donate to help with shipping! You can sponsor a box for $13, or any amount you choose – click on the yellow PayPal button on the Operation Write Home site to make a gift directly right now, or send in a gift with your box of cards!
