Operation Write Home: Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop


Technique Tuesday here, and we are thrilled to joining our friends at Operation Write Home for their Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop.

Operation Write Home is a non-profit organization that supports the U.S. Armed Forces by making blank greeting cards for the troops, which they can use to send notes to their loved ones. 

We admire the effort so four members of the Technique Tuesday team (Chris, Michelle, Bev and Teri) took some time out of the work day this week to some make cards for the cause! In a little over an hour, the four of them were able to make 14 (!!!!!) cards!

Go, team!

And here's a close-up peek at some of those cards.

We can't wait to send these in! We sure hope the troops will enjoy them.

Before we go, we have a special offer in honor of the Operation Write Home Blog Hop. Spend $9.99 or more  on (before shipping), and we'll give you our USA Seal stamp set for free. Just type the words Write Home in the Comments field at check-out.

This offer is good through the end of the day on Monday, May 27th.

Happy hopping!


Ps... Don't forget to check out the rest of the hop! You can find links to everyone taking part right here!


Awesome! I have never done this but really need to get going and create for OWH! ~God bless all ~

Oh wow! Each card is prettier than the next. Great job! Thanks for supporting OWH!

Beautiful cards. Thank you so much for supporting OWH.

Will memebers of the Greenhouse society get this stamp?

Wow! Those cards are great and I can't believe they made 14 in only an hour. Thanks for your support of OWH! I love Technique Tuesday stamps!

Lovely arraig of cards love everyone of it there so colorful!! thanks for hopping and support!

The design team did an awesome job.

I'm sure these cards will be greatly appreciated.


I wasn't sure where to leave a comment for the OWH on your Blog Hop so I chose this comment section...This is a wonderful thing everyone is doing...making cards for our troops. Certainly they can not get crafty while they are so far from home and I would imagine that many of them would much rather be at home with their papers and inks and craft tools than to be in their military fatigues, missing their families, and so far from home. God Bless America and God Bless our Troops.

What a great idea, thanks for sharing. I have always wanted to do this!

Wow! So many cards! I like all the cut pieces in each card. That really makes them pop! Tfs. (Amy A. #118)

The girls knocked these cards out of the park. Really awesome effort.

All of them are such great cards! Thanks for sharing, as well as the free stamp offer!

I love them all! But if I had to pick a favorite it would be the silhouette one with the flowers and grasses against the orange background. Somehow that is so cheery!
