One day doesn't seem like quite enough to celebrate the best occasion of the whole year does it? Thank you for joining me for the Operation Write Home bloghop... If you would like to see THE BEST card making bloghop of the whole year, be sure to Start Here for tons of beautiful inspiration. Here are two cards (no one can make just one...) following OWH sketches 22 and 45 that I made to prepare my box of holiday cards for our heroes. Please scroll back one post for credits inspiration and supplies used, as well as the chance to enter for some candy!

Thank you for stopping by and thank you, Operation Write Home for another fabulous hop.

Nancy, You have presented us with two outstanding cards, each so unique. I love the colors and simplicity of yours Hanukkah card. I also really love the first card with the shades of colors having a real rich feel to them. I also like how your used the snowflake shapes to make a surround for your image. Fabulous idea.
