A Big Thank You: OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

A big hello to all card making friends.  A special day over at Operation Write Home, one very special Memorial Day Blog Hop to remember.  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!  A bittersweet event, as I've enjoyed immensely making cards for our military Heroes, but… this means our Heroes are coming home!  I made my card in honor of our Heroes and to the all wonderful work of Operation Write Home.  Thank you! 



Sentiment:  Create with TLC (a freebie she had a while back)
DP:  scraps
Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots"
Brads:  Paper Studio
