Operation Write Home

I have decided I want to start making cards for our soldiers. I am gonna start makeing cards for OWH - Operation Write Home. This is taken from OHW's webpage:
"Care packages filled with hundreds of handmade cards are sent to our contacts, restocking every 6-8 weeks, and are sent in time for the long journey back home to loved ones. Each box is packed with great care, alternating styles, colors, and cardmakers from all over the USA, creating “eye candy” for heroes who see only khaki around them. The topper on each box is a plastic bag filled with 20-30 letters from adults and children across the country, letters handed out especially to those in need of a positive word from the homefront."

OHW has challenges to help keep the cardmaker's creative minds flowing. I am joining in on their President's Day Virtual Card Making Party. The first challenge is "Zig Zag Your Cards!"   I made my Chevron stripes with my Gyspy and Cricut.

PS - There is no glitter on my card. The flash from my camera make my zebra stripes look funny. 

Until next time ~ VinDeeLoo

It's so great to have you join us at OWH! Your pattern paper is so interesting and those chevrons are hot! Thanks for playing along in my challenge!
