Welcome my first Operation Write Home Blog Hop! What is Operation Write Home? It is an organization that sends handmade cards to deployed service members. This month, we're featuring Valentine's Day themed handmade cards for your inspiration!

If you've hopped over from Courtney's Blog, I'm really glad you stopped by! If you've come to me outside of the hop you can start from the beginning by clicking here. What a great way to find inspiration for handmade cards!

If you would like to participate and send cards to the troops, the Valentine's Day card deadline is January 7th. (The deadline for Christmas cards has passed.)

Now on to the Valentine's Day cards…
Please note cards made for the troops should NOT have any glitter on them, so these won't be going…get more information here on the guidelines.

What's Valentine's Day without a little bling…boring. I love the new Candy Cane Christmas Specialty Designer Series paper so I had to showcase it on these cards. Why does it just have to be for Christmas?! The best part about this paper is that the Bling is already included (its adhered to the paper).
