Operation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, will be closing later this year. All cards need to be sent in by August 1st, so I'm helping to get the word out by participating in the OWH Memorial Day blog hop.
To start at the beginning of the hop, just click the badge above.
I've made a thank-you card in honor of Memorial Day. I cut a MFT stitched quilt die 3 times, using red, blue, and white cardstock. I had fun switching the stitched quilt pieces to make different patterns and designs, and added a couple punched flowers and a navy star brad to the center. The sentiment is from MFP and was stamped with blue ink.
I had enough pieces left for a second card, so I just added different punched flowers and a mini star brad to the center.
I'm really going to miss making cards for OWH; but at the same time, I'm happy knowing that more of our servicemen and women are back home with their families, and are able to express what they're feeling in person, instead of in a greeting card. I'm grateful for having had the opportunity to support OWH for so many years; and knowing how many lives have been touched with a hand-made card have enriched my life in many ways. Thanks OWH!
Happy Memorial Day to all of our wonderful military, and thanks for serving!
