Hi, everyone! Can you believe that Operation Write Home posted Sketch #250 today?! Wow -- that's a lot of sketches. 

Sounds like a perfect excuse to post an Any Hero card.  :)

OWH Sketch #250
We R Memory Keepers red, white & blue; Bazzil watermelon; American Crafts teal; Core-dinations white
TPC Studio sentiment in Distress Ink black soot on Recollections white
Creative Memories circle cutting system
Marvy and Paper Shaper circle punches; Martha Stewart star punch
Stampin' Up! owl builder punch for tiniest circle
Recollections foam square adhesives

The red/white/blue star embellishment is adhered with a double layer of foam adhesives. Since this is an Any Hero card, it is perfectly fine. However, for "regular" Operation Write Home cards -- aka the cards troops mail home to their loved ones, cards should not be any thicker than one layer of foam adhesive.

Parting Thoughts
Mar. 1 - Mar. 21
There is an in-like-a-lion-out-like-a-lamb weather-related challenge going on at Words 2 Scrap By. Annie is hosting this month and if offering a $15 gift certificate to Stamps of Life for our winning entry. Cards can be linked up until March 21, and we hope you will join us.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
