Memorial Day of 2009 someone had posted about Cards for Heroes which is now Operation Write Home. I gathered all the old cards I had here and sent them off. It is a way to support our troops and have fun doing it. I have continued to add to a box I have just for OWH. So far I just work alone, I have used swap cards after asking those who sent them if they minded me sending them on. I would like to get a monthly group going but that is still in the planning stages.
Made with Stampin’ Up! stamps and wheels. I have made a quick birthday card and after snapping the pix thought I really need to get things more centered and started to redo the card. After some consideration I decided it did not need to be perfect. Made with Stampin’ Up! stamps and wheels.
I have also included a Hero Card. With each box of cards we send to Operation Write Home, they ask that we include Hero Cards. I make these and send them blank with a type written letter to insert into the card. Stampin’ Up! set called Courage.
Today Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps blog is celebrating
Independence Day with a Blog Tour.
So go visit to see all the great cards that have been
made for the birthday of United States of America.
Sending a huge thank the men and women who volunteer to serve today and their families for the sacrifice they make in being in a military family.
May our troops remain safe and return home soon!
Happy Independence Day!
