World Card Making day October 1st

I've tried to do something for World Card Making Day you can read all about it here.
It usually brings my mojo back if I have lost it or spurs me on even more to
do something for this day.

This year I am dedicating the day to 
A not for profit organisation run by one special lady Sandy Allnock
that collects hand made cards
to send to Defence Forces in war torn zones, ships at sea and who
ever needs the cards to send home to loved ones.

Some of the cards I have made are showcased here

I have learnt that all units who gather in a vicinity also
get the privilege of getting our cards to use as well,
not just the American soldiers/airforce/marines.

I have not found anyone here in Australia 
who does this for our own Defence Force to be 
able to donate my cards to.

Feel free to message me if you know.
Otherwise I will continue to support Operation Write Home.

Here is a video of how and what is required when you make and
donate to this worthy cause

Have a great day


  1. Appreciate you supporting our troops!

  2. Thank you for supporting OWH and all our Heroes!

  3. Thank you for your support. I hope there is an organization in your area somewhere. :)

  4. Oh, it's wonderful that you choose to support OWH. Hopefully you find a similar group in Australia soon. Your cards are beautiful!
    Thanks for sharing with OWH!

  5. Thanks for your support of Operation Write Home! Your cards are lovely, especially the cattail reed cards. 10 minutes? Wow. Great use of the slot punch to make the cattails!

  6. Oh, Bridget, how wonderful that you are supporting our heroes and in doing so, your own at times. What a lovely thing for you to do. I am now going on to look at your cards that I will warrant to say are as beautiful as your heart.

  7. Hi again, Bridget. I came back to your blog and took a look at your other work and was pleased to see I predicted correctly that your cards would resemble your heart. The cards you made before your hiatus use many of the stamps I used before mine. I was very much into art stamps and "art" type cards. Now I pretty much go with whatever I am feeling at the time I'm creating.

    I love the way you have given us links and information about making the flowers you used for your blog card. And how generous of you to offer blog candy as well. You seem also to be a kind-hearted person.

    Thank you, too, for the kind words you left on my blog. I treasure them.
