Special Challenge for OWH

Today is not a "normal" challenge day for Catch the Bug and Bugaboo Stamps. This week, Bugaboo is teaming up with Operation Write Home (OWH). OWH is an organization that collects handmade greeting cards and delivers them to soldiers overseas so they can write to their families back home. It really is a great organization and you can read more about it HERE.
So, what's the challenge you ask? Well, given the time of year, we're challenging you to make a holiday card. ANY kind of holiday card you would like and then, send it to OWH so a soldier's family can have the joy of hearing from their loved one on one of your gorgeous cards. You can find where to send your card, or cards, on the OWH website.
This is a card I made using one of my favorite Bugaboo Marshmallow Snowmen:
I hope you'll play along in the challenge and send some cards to OWH for our soldiers. Remember, no glitter or glitter glue on your cards because it easily transfers to the soldiers' uniforms and makes them an easy target at night. Other than that, create any kind of holiday card you would like and send it in! Easy peasy!


  1. I love your card thanks for joining the challenge and supporting us and OWH!
