Operation Write Home ~ Memorial Day Hop


Thanks for stopping by today for this wonderful reason to "hop"! Take a moment to remember those who fight for our freedom and allow us to enjoy life as we know it. I love making cards for OWH and knowing that our deployed heroes have something especially hand made to send home to their loved ones. It let's them know that we are thinking of them and appreciate everything they are doing for us. Sandy Allnock is also a hero in my book for everything she does to ensure the needs are met. There is a tremendous amount of work involved and I just want to say THANK YOU for keeping this wonderful cause going!!!

Image: A freebie from Dustin Pike (check out the adorable images on this site!)
Sentiment: TPC Studio - Greetings Stamp Set
Star Paper: The Paper Studio - 180 Paper Pack
Sketch: Operation Write Home #157 (Your inspiration starts here!)

I have blog candy in appreciation for you taking the time to hop with us today. Check out yesterday's post for your chance to win! Happy Memorial Day!
