MM7: Remembering Those Who Have Sacrificed

Hi, everyone! Hope it's been a nice weekend.

Rather than making a card to share today, I have spent time the last few days hopping along with fellow Operation Write Home card makers. Operation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, will be closing later this year. It is an organization that has become near and dear to my heart!

As many of your know, my father-in-law is a World War II veteran who flew bombing missions over Germany, and two of my uncles served during the Vietnam era. Operation Write Home has been a way for me to pay forward in honor of these special men in my life. On this Memorial Day Weekend, I offer my thanks and gratitude to all those who have served our country and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

I'm here to help get the word out that OWH is finishing strong and ALL cards need to be sent in by August 1st!
Please click here to return to the bloghop's home page.

Before closing its doors, OWH is hosting one final bloghop this weekend. If you have a little crafting time, you'll find lots of inspiration in the posted cards. Of course, the theme for this year's bloghop is to make cards featuring red, white, and blue.  :)
  • Please click here to learn more about OWH's Finish Strong campaign.
  • Please click here to read about OWH's card guidelines. Cards should be A2 size, deliverable via USPS, and glitter-free. In addition, cards should fit the following themes: miss you, thinking of you, love, thank you, and happy birthday.
Parting Thoughts

There are still a few more days to enter the Say Cheese Words 2 Scrap By challenge! We'd love to
have you play along.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'! And, with any luck, I'll have a card to share on Friday.  :)

  1. We are gathering in June to make cards for OWH and I will get them in pronto! Bittersweet to see OWH close, but at the same time it's a good thing because it means our Hero's are home with their families more. I know my Hero has been home and I have loved it!!! Hugs, Brenda
