Strollin’ at the (OWH) Hop

Well, you can rock it you can roll it
You can slop and you can stroll it at the hop.
~ Danny and the Juniors, 1957, “At the Hop”

“Ah, let’s go to the Hop!” Welcome to all of you following the Operation Write Home (OWH) Bunny Hop. If you’ve started at the beginning, you’ve heard this now 131 times, but it’s worth repeating: OWM wants to remind you that the deadlines are coming up for sending Easter (March 18th) and Mother’s Day (March 31st) cards to our troops.

In honor of our troops, their families, and the good work that OWH does, I have some blog candy for you. Just leave me a comment telling me that you visited the OWH web site and what you liked most about the site. Was it the stories from the troops, the challenges, or the free digital stamps? Wednesday I’ll pick two of you to receive a Tissue Coozie I made to go with this card. Aren’t they cute?

Thanks to the sweet ladies at Tomorrow’s Quilt in Waco, who didn’t laugh at me when I told them I was looking for fabric to match a paper project. They even took time to help me match the colors – hugs to you sewing sweeties. You can find the very easy instructions to make these cuties at Stitch Craft.


Now you’re all set to hop to the next blog in the OWH Bunny Hop. Have fun at

  1. Sorry, had to post again when I realized you live in Waco, TX!  Most of my family lives close by to you in Mart.  I live in Fort Worth.  We're practically neighbors!  LOL

  2. What a fabulous card!  I love that bunny, and who wouldn't be whistling a little tune while hopping along in that costume?  The colors are great, and I love how you made the grass with the DP!   I love how you matched the tissue coozie to the card right down to the dots on the material!  This is my first time here, so I'll have to mark you for a return visit when I finally finish the hop!  Thanks for supporting OWH!

  3. Sooooo cute card with a bright springy colors. I love it. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. That is just the cutest thing!!  Love the card and those tissue cosies??  Adorable!!

    My favourite thing on the OWH blog?  That's a toughie.  I love the sketches, but I also love to read the stories from the troops.  It just makes me happy to see.  Funny thing is that I always forget about the free digis.  

  5. Wonderful projects & blog. Love your frog tissue cozies. My fav thing on the OWH blog would have to be the stories from the troops. What a wonderful project & I am sure that they love your beautiful cards. TFS!

  6. I laughed when I saw your card! That stamp is adorable. Thank you for sharing it.
    There are many things to like at the OWH blog: the stories, the tutorials, even the glossary!
