OWH Memorial Weekend Blog Hop

Good morning everyone, hope it's the start of a beautiful weekend.  The Anderegg Family has a new "family" physician, Dr. Tyler Anderegg! Along with becoming a doctor, he was promoted to the rank of Captain.  Our family is so grateful to those who've helped to support and shape our son into the young man that he is.  We cannot say thank you enough to those folks as well as to the young men and women serving in our military, making accomplishments like this possible.  Thank you!

I'm a proud member of Operation Write Home, a non-profit group who makes blank greeting cards for our military heroes to send back home to their loved ones.  This weekend we celebrate and thank those who serve and protect!

Operation Write Home MWT x 3

Good morning everyone, hope it's as sunny your way as it is here in Western Colorado.  This week is a special week for the Anderegg family, as our oldest child will graduate medical school this Friday!  His life long dream of being a doctor, an Army doctor at that, will come to fruition.  I've been creating alot of thank you cards for my son, so that he can thank the many wonderful folks who have helped him along the way.  This week's Midweek Throwdown at OWH challenges us to do things in three.  As they say, good things come in threes!  Enjoy the rest of your week, I'll catch up real soon.

NSD OWH VCMP "Kids with a Sketch"

Back for a second card this "holiday" weekend.  I love making kid cards, so I couldn't resist Paula's Challenge to make a kid card, using a sketch as well.  I have an unofficial goal of eventually using all of Operation Write Home sketches (171 and counting).  I dug deep into the early sketches and am trying out #22.   Although a bit simple, I like it for kids.  Best wishes for a great week.

OWH Sketch Challenge #171

Happy Scrapbooking weekend!  In honor of this weekend, Operation Write Home is sponsoring a Virtual Card Making Party.  We finally have some nice weather, so I spent most of the weekend planting my veggie garden, so, I've had little time thus far for card making.  I did manage a bit of time to make  this week's sketch.  I love the sketch, fun to use with a focal point dp!  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and the VCMP!

A Hero's Thank You

Good morning everyone!  Mother nature is so fickle, rain, sunshine and even snow in the Rockies!  Today, I celebrate the honor of sending off 1,000 cards to our heroes.  We thank them for their dedication and personal sacrifices to keep us safe, living the American Dream.

In addition to celebrating my 1,000 card goal, I combined this week's sketch challenge with this Midweek Throwdown Challenge, creating thank you cards for our heroes.    Best wishes for a great weekend!
