Good morning and happy Memorial Day weekend to you all! Today is the day of the Operation Write Home (formerly Cards for Heroes) Blog Hop!!!
If you have arrived from Katlyn's Blog, you're on the right track! If not, please start at the beginning at the Stars and Stamps Blog so you don't miss anything! There will be freebies/blog candy scattered throughout the hop!
I would like to challenge any of my friends or followers who stop by today to send in a batch of cards or a donation for postage...get the addresses HERE! (Right hand sidebar) I have donated 40 cards this month...how many will you send?
Need some inspiration? Check out the HERO BLOG that is filled with letters from heroes and their families. Hear what they have to say about receiving all of our great cards!
I made the following card with a sweet image from Wink Wink Ink. Melanie, the owner and artist, is amazing! She made this digital image just for the blog hop today. Be sure you didn't miss her!
I cannot find the words to appropriately express how grateful my family and I are that so many Heroes are putting themselves in harm's way to protect us and our country every single day. The U.S.A. is the land of the free and the home of the brave...but only because of the courageous men and women who serve. We wish them and their fellow troop members complete safety throughout their tour of duty. May they return home soon to a TRUE HERO'S welcome! Their sacrifices do not go unnoticed!
Do you have a family member or friend deployed? If the answer is yes, please let them know that we said "THANK YOU!"
I have candy for you as well...anyone who becomes a follower (sometimes being a follower is fun!) and leaves a comment here will be entered to win this Close to my Heart acrylic stamp set! Please comment by 12:00PM (noon) CST on Memorial Day!
