Starting Valentine Card Season Out With Glitter

Operation Write Home will be sending thousands of valentines to deployed soldiers.  Here is one that I am sending in

Valentines should be sparkly shouldn't they.  But glitter is a major no-no for OWH because it can call flake off and became a hazard for the soldier (it reflects light and can make the soldier a target in a night vision scope, making glitter beautiful but deadly in this arena).  So you can imagine how excited I was when I saw glitter paper in the SU! spring mini (available January 4).  Another benefit of being a demonstrator is I get to order early!

Seriously its so sparkly it looks like Dorothy's shoes in the Wizard of Oz!  But I love red, I love sparkle and I love this card....

A friend and I will be hosting an OWH valentines party next week, so I'll be posting the cards we're making over the next few days.  I'll try and get pix f the party itself, but I usually end up getting caught up in the fun and forget to capture it on film :)

Thanks for stopping by!
