Operation Write Home Finishing Strong Blog Hop

FinishingstrongblogHi everyone!

Technique Tuesday here, and we are thrilled to be joining Operation Write Home for their Finishing Strong Blog Hop.

We've enjoyed taking part over the years in Operation Write Home's blog hops to show support for the organization, which provides handmade cards for troops to send home to their loved ones.

Operation Write Home recently announced their final campaign, Finishing Strong. With less need for cards because troop deployment numbers are down, they'll be closing after August 1st. If you've been making cards and meaning to send them in, be sure to get them to Operation Write Home by that date so they can send them off to the troops!

So with that, we've got one card to share with you today.

My Hero card from Hero card by Technique Tuesday supplies used: My Hero stamp set; Lots of Dots stamp set; Story Card steel dies; and Nested Stars steel dies.)

And, as a thank you, we've got a giveaway too!

I love how you did the title in the two colors, I always love this look and should use it myself more often. I also love the use of the stacking dies! I liked them for separate stars but they look awesome like that. TFS

What a truly worthwhile way for us to have used our card-making skills. Thanks to all the work done on behalf of this worthwhile endeavour over the years.

Love your card. Thanks for the great prize package.

Thank you for always supporting OWH! Love your stamps.

What a great card! What a great cause, a heartfelt thanks to our men and women in uniform who sacrifice daily for us!

I'm going to make this card for my PL scrapbook to commemorate Memorial Day. Always love the cards you share

Love the graphic nature of this card! I especially like the shade of blue that was used and the polka dots. Love Technique Tuesday stamps and now I love the dies. Thanks for supporting OWH through the years!

What a great way to support our Military.

What a great idea to support the troops with cards! And thanks a lot for the chance to win the nice prize!

Wonderful group of stamps. They will make lots of greeting cards - for the upcoming patriotic holidays but for all year long.

Great colors and the stars are beautiful. That blue is fabulous.

The big, bold style in this is terrific. Nice twist in the RWB theme with the bright shade of blue too!

So happy troops are coming HOME! Sandy is a BEAUTIFUL person & soul and live her to pieces for starting this campaign!

What a great card ... I love those stars and that shade of blue.

The card is awesome! Have always loved Operation Write Home, so happy they helped keep moral up, even happier more troops are here at home now!

There are good ideas here. I'm not really good at card making but I'd love to participate!

I love the colors and the beautiful simplicity of this card. Thank you for the chance to win such amazing products.

What a bold statement this card makes! Love it! Beautiful dies too! OWH has done wonderful things over the years!

I love this card! I'm sorry to see this great charity end.

What a lovely card, I like the polka dot paper and how you made the star look 3 dimensional! Your color choices are awesome and of course the bling is the best!!!! Thank you so much for supporting OWH!

Beautiful card! Thanks for the giveaway.

Such good news that troop deployment is down. Thanks for the giveaway!

Beautiful hero card ! Thanks for the chance to win.

Am devastated this beautiful way of honoring our soldiers is ending soon. I have 3 in the Army who may be deployed in the near future and hoped that maybe someday they might receive a greeting from their homeland.The hero cards are quite striking!They will light up someone's eyes and brighten their day.Blessings for such a generous prize. :)

Beautiful card - great cause! Happy Memorial Day to everyone.

Thanks to all the troops and their families. Great bold and graphic card.

Amazing that the deployment rate is down! Super great blog hop! So many great creations, love the red, white and blue!

great card and super giveaway! thanks!

Great card! I love that shade of blue!

What a great card! Thanks for supporting our troops, too. :D

This is such a great card! I love the stars and the red bling on either side of "hero". Just pulls it all together and details on a card are everything! Good job!
Thanks for the chance to win. I don't have ANY of your products at this point so it would be awesome to win.

Wonderful card! I love the fabulous stars with the dotty papers!
Thanks so much for you support of OWH and for the chance to win these wonderful products!

Thanks for supporting OWH! Must send the cards that I've been meaning to send!

Great card and what a great organization, we need more groups out there who support our men and women each and every day. God Bless Our Military!

Beautiful card! Thanks for your support of OWH.

Wow-- what a striking card!! I love how it feels CAS and yet, there's so much going on- in a good way!! Thank so much for your support and for this awesome prize pack!! WOWZERS!! I'd LOVE to score these!! RBBRRMQN at YAHOO dot COM

Love the sentiment in 2 colors and love the font on HERO! The rounded corners on the center panel bring such nice attention to the focal point! Thanks for supporting OWH and our troops!

Love the contrast on this card. OWH is one of my favorite organizations, because we aren't just sending money but a little bit of ourselves to heroes willing to give all of themselves for us. Thank you for being a part of that too.

What a great card, love the dotty paper, TFS.

I love die cuts so this card is right up my alley!! Gorgeous design.


I would love to make cards for this wonderful cause! Where can I send them?
Of course, yours are so beautiful and colorful. Love it.

God Bless and keep our military safe!

I love your card! My dad served in the Army just before Vietnam, and all three of his brothers served, too. Dad's uncle, Joe, was stationed at Hickam Field in Hawaii when Pearl Harbor was attacked. When I was in college, I selected him as a topic of study and I interviewed him about that time period. So glad I got the chance as he died shortly after.

Wonderful card! Love the strong visual impact.

I just love those nesting stars! They are great for making Any Hero cards. I need to use mine more. Thanks for the reminder.
