OWH Valentine's Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Operation Write Home Valentine's Blog Hop.

Are you new to OWH?

To find out more, please visit their web site find out more about them and their mission.

I wanted to let you know that the Christmas card deadline has passed; OWH sent out many thousands of them, and our heroes are busy writing home on them in the next couple weeks. The VALENTINES deadline is January 7th - getting the cards to a shipper sooner is preferred though. Especially if you want to help out with the Special Mission to get 4000 Valentines sent in by Dec 1st - if they meet that goal, our heroes get 4,000 cookies from Archway! Read more here. In December they'll post a list of deadlines for 2011, so stay tuned.

Here is the card I have made to share for our Valentines Day Blog Hop.

I just love this bird image from AiFactory and thought it was perfect as a pair of love birds.  I colored the image with Marvy markers.  The DP is Stampin Up.  The metal circles are Imaginisce.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you're enjoying the hop.  Your next stop is Jan at Art Friendzy.

Heather Grow said...

I first want to tell you that your card is gorgeous. TFS.

Then, I want to give you a little tip. Your photo looks a little dark (maybe that is what you are going for) and I thought I'd give you a tip to brighten it up. If you use a photo editing program like the one that came with your camera, photoshop or picnik.com (my fav) you can increase the contrast and it will make your whites whiter. Give it a try.
