Operation Write Home Spring Training blog hop!


Hello and welcome to the Operation Write Home Spring Training Blog Hop! Operation Write Home is an organization that sends blank handmade cards to deployed service members so they can write home to their families. How amazing is that?!

Today we are creating masculine cards! We have an awesome video tutorial by Tiffany, too! You should have come from Sparkle Creations, and you can start the hop here.

Check out Tiffany's video below or at our YouTube channel!
Thanks so much for watching!


Isn't this card just adorable?! It has so much dimension but closes flat and is easy to mail. Perfect for Operation Write Home!

We hope you guys have fun creating masculine cards for Operation Write Home!

You have reached the end of the hop, but you can see all of the fun inspiration, if you start here!

A big thank you to Tiffany! Her husband is currently deployed, and we are sending him, Tiffany and their family lots of love!
Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,
