Operation Write Home Veterns Day blog hop!

Hello all! Thanks for stopping by my blog. It has been a super busy week with work (yes I am happy that I have a job) and went to see Bruce Springsteen last night. So of course I waited until the last minute to make valentine's day cards for the operation write home veterans day blog hop! So I got up early this am and made some quick and easy cards. For those of you who do not know about operation write home please stop by their site and see if you can donate cards or money!! Their site is http://www.owhhomefrontblog.org/ Here is some of my creations!










Thanks for looking!! The next blog on the hop is one of the operation write home hostesses! I am super happy to be the blog before Fabre's. Kris, Fabre and Sandy are the three women that really make this whole thing work. We make the cards and ship them to one of the three and they re-package and send to over seas to the troops. Not sure how she gets it all done, kids, making cards, sending out packages oh my!! I have a hard time just packaging my cards to send to her! We also share a love of baseball and football, got love that in a girl. Ok enough writing and more card sight seeing! Off to Fabre's blog

Have a great day! It is beautiful in the Michigan today!

This is such a heartening venture. Here in Canada, the painting guild I belong to also creates and sends cards for our troops. They range from painted, thru to stamped and embossed cards in every style imaginable and are received with great appreciation. It's such a little thing we can do for our heroes!
