The next holiday deadline for Operation Write Home cards is Valentine's Day on December 31; however, the most useful cards for OWH are the ones that are not so holiday specific, so I do "Love" cards that can be used for Valentine's Day or for any day. At my scrapbooking retreat last weekend, I bought this beautiful paper from the My Mind's Eye Love Me collection. I bought a 12x12 paper pack for scrapbooking AND a 6x6 paper pad for cardmaking. I tried to choose the more masculine patterns to make some of my OWH cards this time - stripes, plaids, etc.
