SSDS Saturday Challenge AND 2 CUTE RUBBER STAMPS

Hello everyone,
Happy Saturday to you. Today I have combined my card again using an image from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps for the Challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle.
The challenge at SSDS was changed to be a Birthday Card for Operation Write Home (OWH) birthday celebration this month (they use to be know as Cards For Heroes).

We are asking that all the participants send their cards into OWH for our troups. The prize is from Craft Brulee http://www.craftbrulee.co.uk/


You can find the OWH shipping addresses here: http://www.operationwritehome.org/mailroom.html

This is from the OWH website...
OWH supports our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. Our 'birthday' (anniversary of our official registration as an org) is Sept 12th — but we're stretching the party to last all month!

Operation Write Home began in 2007 with just a few cards made by friends on a message board; what began as an outlet for a hobby has become a much larger mission to help heroes keep in touch with home - and the effort has been joined by thousands of cardmakers!
OWH receives handmade cards donated by crafters across America (and beyond!). Cardmakers range in age, location, and level of skill; cards are provided by individuals and groups, schools and scouts, companies and churches. All have one primary thing in common: a desire to serve those who defend our nation!

Cards are mailed to one of our volunteer shippers in quanities both small and large. The shippers process, sort, repair, and document each donation, and then pack and ship boxes of over 300 cards each to our contacts. Our heroes request cards (families may also request on their behalf; we serve all branches in all deployed locations.

Tax-deductible donations of any size keep this work going - from $1 to any amount - and can be included with card donations to any shipper, mailed separately, or via Paypal.
Thank you for partnering with us!
SOME OTHER NEWS:
This is my last week that I'll combine these cards for the two Design Teams I'm on, as I have informed Regina that I will be stepping down from my DT position with SSDS next Saturday. I have truly enjoyed my time (I joined with the first batch of DT Members) with all the members and felt it was time to move on - and allow someone else to join in. There is a current search for DT members and I'm sure they'll find someone great to take over. I hope this allows me a little extra time to participate in more challenges.
