Die-Versions/Operation Write Home Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to our first joint blog hop featuring the Die-Versions design team and Operation Write Home.  Die-Versions New Release this month will be featuring new sets of dies that will be a fundraising product for OWH.


If you are not familiar with Operation Write Home, their mission is to support our armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as "AnyHero" cards of gratitude to encourage them.  You can find more information for newcomers at: http://operationwritehome.org/welcome/.

If you want to join in this wonderful endeavor, be sure to check out the OWH Guidelines as to what can and can not be accepted.  You can review their guidelines here.  (The basics are NO glitter, no very lumpy embellishments, and an A2 sized card that is easily mailable with standard postage.  FYI - glitter is a safety hazard for deployed troops.)


A couple projects to help entice you:

Lori

Anne
Here is the official link list of participants in this blog hop.  If you came here in the middle of the hop, you may want to start at the beginning, with OWH Stars & Stamps.  (If you're here at the end of the Hop, we hope you've enjoyed lots of fabulous eye candy using these wonderful dies and have gotten some great ideas of your own.)  There will also be blog candy given to random commenters.  So be sure to leave a comment for each of us for your chance to win.  Full details can be seen at the OWH Start-Off post.

So sit back, grab a drink and enjoy the hop.  We're sure you'll see something you like and by purchasing any of these dies, you'll also be supporting our armed forces.



Thanks for joining us for the special hop!

  35. I have now been introduced to a new place to spend my craft $$. I’ll be heading over to your website as soon as I finish my comments here. I will also share this site to the other ladies I make OWH cards with. :)

    It's hard to pick just one die that I like best. There are too many great ones. The blog has shared so many cute ideas to incorporate your dies on cards to tell their loved ones at home they miss them. I REALLY enjoyed the blog hop and now I am VERY inspired and anxious to make many new cards.

    Thanks you everyone on the design team for all your hard work to create ideas for cards for our servicemen! I’m proud to participate.

Yep, I'm CASing that one!

I try to support those who support OWH. Thank you again.

  48. This was a lovely hop. The designers did a great job in showing off the versatility of the dies. Re: the cards above. Both are well done and very cute. I do like the first one the best because when I see denim and bandanas, I think USA farmland. Very cool. Isn't it funny how certain colors and textures evoke feelings? Great job on the hop.

The new release is fantastic! And so very exciting to this OWH'er! These last two cards are going in the idea file for sure. Hope to see even more OWH/ DV collaborations in the future!!
