Operation Write Home's Memorial Day BlogHop

MemDay2013BlogBanner

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! For the 3rd year in a row I am celebrating by participating in the Operation Write Home's Memorial Day BlogHop! Having Grand Fathers, uncles and in-laws that were among the brave that have fought to keep our home FREE it gives me great honor to give back with cards for our soldiers! Today I am using one of my favorite Digital Delights Stamps USA Myrtle to create a card for a soldier to tell him how much I appreciate his service to this country! Delivering letters to solidiers who do not recieve much mail from home is merely one service that Operation Write Home provides, but for me I think it is the most important. It tells someone completely unknown to me that I appreciate them very much. In a small way I hope it brightens their day.

supplies used for this card :
BIC Mark-Its
Card Stock
Digital Delights Damask Papers
USA Myrtle Turtle
Groove on Sentiments
Thank you for looking I hope you enjoy my card!
