From the Depths of my Heart...

That is the sentiment that comes with this too-cute Hambo Stamps Pigsub digi-image!!  Hambo Challenge Blog has a very worthwhile challenge this week:  Make a card and send it (with a blank envelope) to Monica at:
Hambo Stamps
OWH Challenge
4907 W. Grace Street
Richmond, VA 23230-3609
 for Operation Write Home.  Your card has to follow the OWH guidelines, but if you play this week, you not only get a free digi sent to you to use in next week's challenge, but your card will make a soldier and his or her family very happy.  Homemade cards are treasured by our servicemen and women who are deployed around the world, as they don't have access to greeting card stores.  I have sent more than 120 cards overseas so far, through various agencies, including my son's unit, who has sent out three deployments in the last year.

 I made a Z-Fold card for this challenge, but turned it 180 degrees, so that the card opened up instead of out.  A white oval for writing a message is on the inside of the card, behind my seapig's sub.  I love the patterned paper I found in my leftovers drawer and wish I had a piece of it to ID the paper company.  Since glitter is one of the no-no's for making cards for OWH, I used Liquid Glass to make a few bubbles rising from the sub, as well as put a little shine on the sub's porthole (but you can'r see it in the photo, sigh).
Have fun paying the Hambo Hoedown this week, and don't forget to leave a little love here!
