Challenge 136 - OWH Cards + Blog Hop Saturday!

Hello Ai Fans!

Welcome to our newest challenge! We're excited to celebrate this Memorial Day weekend with Operation Write Home (OWH), a non-profit organization in which volunteers create handmade cards that are gathered and sent overseas to troops, so they can then write home to their families.
How cool is that?!

We will be joining in the annual OWH Memorial Day Bloghop on Saturday, May 24 and we can't wait for the fun to start! If you would like to sign up for the hop, head to and enter your blog by the end of the day today (Thursday, 5/22).

For our challenge, we would love to see you create OWH cards to send in! There are some guidelines for OWH (A2 cards with envelopes, no glitter, etc.) and to make sure your card is in tip-top shape for our troops, check out the guidelines here. As long as your card follows the guidelines, feel free to submit to our challenge! Also, don't forget to mail in your cards to OWH, check out the mailroom information here.
