Operation Write Home Blog Hop



I am so happy to be participating the OWH blog hop. I think it is such a noble cause and pray for our soldiers overseas every day.  


For this hop I made a simple gate fold Christmas card from some paper I picked up at Target. I like the classic Christmas feel of this paper, but I've had it for a few years so I don't remember who it's from.

I like the gate fold because it's a little more formal. It looks really neat when you open it.



Inside I used the red zig-zag rub on to dress up the paper inside the card. I didn't add a greeting because I wanted to have room to write a message in it.



I hope you like my card. I'm also giving away a bunch of scrapbook supplies, including this ribbon at the end of the month.


To enter just leave me a comment on this post, and I will announce the winner on October 31. You must be a follower to win.

Happy Crafting!
