I am hosting a Challenge!! In honor of OWH

Hello fellow crafters!!  I am excited to be hosting my first challenge here on this blog!!
Operation Write Home is celebrating their birthday this month. 
If you are not familiar with Operation Write Home (OWH) let me tell you a little about them.

This wonderful organization was started by Sandy Allnock in 2007. They support our US armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
You can visit Sandy and her fellow OWH bloggers HERE


SO in honor of OWH we are hosting a challenge this week.  And giving you all the FREEDOM by picking what you do.  Yes, anything goes!

Theme:  Anything you like! It can be a card, scrapbook page, any papercraft!
IT can be any theme, any color!!

Time: Starts today Sept 20th and runs through 11:59 pm EST Sept 27th!!

 The only freedom we are not allowing is backlinking. NO backlinking please, this must be a new project. 

Otherwise you have all the freedom:

You can use any products. 

You can combine with other challenges.

We take projects from all over the world for this challenge!

Post your challenge project on your blog and  direct link it to this post.

WINNERS


 I will pick two winners.  One for favorite card, and on random drawing winner!
Each winner will receive a 20.00 gift certificate to use in my store!

I would like to invite you all to send a card to Operation Write Home!  If you do please read more about the requirements at OWH's website.  (I have been told NO GLITTER)

Thanks for supporting OWH with this challenge and adding some wonderful sample cards! I tried to link to this direct post, but when I click on this post title, it takes me to the OWH website, so I just linked to your blog in general.
