Operation Write Home, MOJO256 & WAW43!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I wanted to share a project I created this week for Mojo Monday. (And since it is Sunday, I better get this gem posted... lol...)
But I also wanted to share a very worthwhile project going on over at Operation Write Home.

For those of you who are not familiar with it, this program gathers handcrafted cards and distributes them to our brave men and women in uniform. By donating handcrafted cards, you enable servicemen and women to send lovely cards home to their loved ones! Isn't that cool?
There are a few rules. For example, you cannot use glitter on your creations.  So you will want to check out all the guidelines.  You can find all the details HERE. And to make things even more exciting they have challenges for you to participate in! In fact each month, Our Daily Bread Designs sponsors a fabbo challenge. My dear friend and fellow DT member, Angie Crockett is hosting this month. So please stop by and check it out! I know you will get a blessing out of participating! Click HERE to check out Angie's challenge.
Thanks to Kelley Holland at ODBD for being such a supporter of this worthwhile cause!

Now I have a card to share for you today using the weekly Mojo Monday sketch...

And the card...

I started with two die cut scallops using my Cricut Winter Woodland cartridge. I then added a Cheery Lynn Designs die cut doily and a Spellbinders die cut denim DP. I used coordinating papers to create the two vertical banners but opted to used a Zva light blue pearl spray to mimic the horizontal banner. The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs' brand new release, Keep Climbing. I thought by using denim papers I would come out with a little more "masculine" card! ***snort*** Somehow, that didn't quit happen!!!
Thanks for stopping in and blessings to you...
