DD12 - Operation Write Home Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone. Today we are doing something a bit different over at Double Delight Challenges. In honor of Operation Write Homes birthday, our challenge is to ...

use any Designed 2 Delight images
to make cards for our military heroes and then send them to one of their mailroom clerks at Operation Write Home. They will bundle them and send them off overseas. Your cards may be any theme (ie. birthday, anniversary, holiday, etc) .

Let's have fun with this one and shower our military heroes with cards that they can send home to their families and friends... or you may even send a note of encouragement to a hero him/herself! **NOTE: please enter as many NEW cards for this challenge as you'd like. EVERYONE who partipcates in this special challenge this week will be emailed this cutie called "Star Spangled Snowman", drawn up by Faith especially for our challenge!!

All the basic guidelines and rules will be available at the Double Delight Challenge Blog. Also be aware of the Holiday deadlines as they need to be mailed 6-8 weeks early. Those deadlines can also be found on the Double Delight challenge blog.

**Please note: This image is not the one you need to use to get next week's digi Free. We are deviating from our regular challenge this week. You will want to use your "SCAREDY CAT" digi this week in order to get next week's digi FREE! Please see Delightful Inspiration Blog to read more about D2D's progressive challenge freebie!

For my card I used the freebie that Faith is giving to everyone that participates in this OWH challenge. I also used the sketch from Sketches by Carly. Today starts a new sketch challenge that D2D is sponsoring for the month of September. One lucky winner will win a free digi from D2D store each week. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!

*Remember to join in the D2D's "Scaredy Cat" challenge this week in order to get next week's digi FREE!!
