Favorite Cards from 2012 - OWH Blog Hop


Here are my ten favorites from the cards I made in 2012 for Operation Write Home.  A perfect theme for New Year's Day blog hopping.  I enjoyed looking back to select my favorites, and I know I'll be inspired by other OWH card makers' favorites on their blogs!

I'd love to receive your comments or questions on my cards.  You can click on a picture to enlarge it, and for card details, you can click on the caption below each picture.  To return to the OWH New Year's Top Ten blog hop, click here.   Happy 2013 to all, and thanks for visiting!

Pinwheel with Stars                                      Purple Flowers on Green

             Three Daffodils                                   Flower Vase with Orange and Teal

Like most of my cards, these were created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them."
