Operation Write Home is a project of Volunteers that make cards and donate time and talent to send cards to the troops. I am participating in a Blog Hop this weekend to support the soldiers that choose to do what they do so I can live comfortably in America-Home of the Free and Land of the Brave!!! I am also very appreciative of the families of the soldiers- they are blessed and proud, but I am sure there is alot of praying going on in their homes! Sit back and grab a cup of tea or coffee and join in on some Red/White/Blue fun-the Hop officially starts at 10AM! There about 135 stops as of Thursday!
I started sending boxes to the soldiers about 5 years ago and recently found this great organization with a group not too far away from my home.
The cards that are sent to the soldiers can not have any glitter on them at all- so I used my sewing machine and some metallic thread to add some sparkle! I used the sketch from MoJo Monday to put the card together. The background red panel is ‘sanded coordinations’ and the white is cuttlebug highlights.
The stamps by Firecracker Designs by Pamela are perfect for soldier cards- and you can WIN a set just by commenting on this post.
You do not have to become a follower to win, but you must come back and drop me a line to claim your prize within 48 hours of the end of the hop. (Winner can e-mail me at Shellymc2 at Comcast dot net).
Next Stop on the Hop is Bonnie Rose
If you are so inspired to make a red/white/blue card, you can link up to the OWH blog which is the last stop on the tour.
Thanks for stopping by today!
