Operation Write Home
I am currently making cards for Operation Write Home, which sends blank handmade cards to deployed servicemen and women. OWH is an amazing organization that ships thousands of cards each month to our nation's Heroes so they have something to write home on. Please check out the tag on the sidebar for more information on this inspiring mission. Please join me in supporting our men and women who sacrifice for us all.

I am enjoying the blog hop for OWH and I'm getting some cards done so we can finish strong! I actually made some Christmas cards yesterday for the box. I had stocked up on Christmas supplies for the year and figured I had better get them out. I made 8 of these.

These 2 are my contribution to the "Oldie Moldie" category. That was an old 8.5"x11" piece I found in with some other stuff. Nice paper. Should have used it years ago.
And then there were these "I love you" cards as well. Pretty paper is my best friend! I'm done cutting for tonight since I have lost all my natural light. I think this is a great hop! I'll be back at it again tomorrow. Good night all!
I can't believe that it is already the end of May and that this is the final OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop. This was a big day at my house. I was "given" the whole 3 days off from wifey duties to cut and paste and watch the flinkets fly! My husband was very supportive of the blog hop weekends like this. He would often come in and ask about what challenges we were doing or what theme or sometimes just give me the thumbs up for something I had made. It sure is empty without him here to cheer me on....
I know he would still be proud of my commitment to making the cards for our Heroes. So, I'm going to make cards until the last day. I had just gotten my card making area sort of set up when I read the news that OWH was going to be declaring Mission Accomplished this year.
I'm so glad to hear that many of our Heroes are finally out of harm's way and back with their friends and families. I have to admit I cried. For them and for the change coming. OWH has been a lifeline to the outside world for me. I lived out very rural on a farm and OWH has been my sanity, my community and place to laugh and grow.

ODBD Challenge for this month is Embossing. I always love how dry embossing looks so fancy and adds so much texture to a card. It is an awesome way to help get those scraps of DP used up as well.
