OWH Animal Pun Blog Skip

Hello Hoppers!

If you came here from Lee Mae you are in the right spot but if you found me first you really should start at Operation Write Home so you don't miss any great "punny" inspiration.

You've never heard of Operation Write Home - oh my. It is a great non profit organization that sends handmade cards to deployed servicemen and women to write home to their loved ones. If you'd like to learn more click here.

Stampers Best is a great friend to Operation Write Home by not only having stamps made by Sandy Allnock the founder of Operation Write Home but making a $1 donation from each sale of any Operation Write Home stamps in their store. My card is made with the Stamper's Best set Turtley Awesome.





If you click here it will take you to the Stampers Best store showing the three sets of stamps you have seen today on all the blogs. With this blog skip Stampers Best is launching these sets with a buy two get one free. What a great deal!


 
The next stop on the skip is Ronni @ Ronnie's Spot.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Marianne

Very cute card! I love how you paper pieced the shell and the balloon. And the embossing on the background paper really adds some nice texture to the whole card. (Kinda has the look of a turtle shell.) Great job!
