Memorial Day Blog Hop with Operation Write Home


 
Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop
Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! I hope you are all taking a moment to thank all of the men and women who served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  If you are new to Operation Write Home welcome!  I am so glad you are here-- take some time to check out ALL of the amazing information that is provided to you!  If you are familiar with OWH-- welcome back :) My hop is if you are new please take some time and consider donating some cards or some cash to OWH if you are able--it's an amazing organization!

I have set a goal for myself in the summer months to kick it in gear and get some more Any Hero cards created and mailed off to Sandy in a few months!  My goal is to send 50 Any Hero cards off by October 1st!  Wish me luck!

Here are my cards for the hop!!

Please don't laugh but for the life of me I can't remember what sketch I used!  I know I know!  So sorry!  When I find the sheet with it on I will update you all! 
 
The fabulous sentiment is from Unity Stamp Company: Thank you for your sacrifice and service a perfect stamp for Any Hero cards! 
 
Paper is from SU as is the ink!  Embossing folder is from Hobby Lobby.

Terrific card - very simple but very effective. Looks like sketch 183 - I know because I've saved your card in my OWH sketch file for inspiration!

I have to admit I did a double take when I saw the thumbnail image for your blog post on the OWH blog hop home page. Here's why: http://thinkingofinking.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/archives/date/2013/10/05
Great minds think alike! :D The distressing you've added to the edges of the white panels is a neat touch. I really like the small stars embossing folder you used, too!
Good luck in reaching your AnyHero card goal, and thanks for supporting OWH!
