We Love Our Hero’s Blog Hop !!! (Stick around 4 Blog Candy too!)


We Love Our Hero’s Blog Hop 5/21 
Today is Armed Forces Day, so again, this is a hop to support and bring awareness to the works of Operation Write Home .

OPERATION WRITE HOME sends cards to our deployed personnel in 2 different ways … today’s hop focuses on HERO MAIL - these cards will go directly to our armed forces (all branches, guys & gals). This type of card is our personal thank you to the hero.

Did you know - OWH also asks us to design cards that the service persons can send home to their families? Oh I LOVE this idea! Lets face it guys - they do not have a Wal-Mart or Hallmark they can run in at the last moment to get a greeting card for their family. And can you think of any mother, wife, sister - that deserves a birthday card or mothers day card more than a Military Wife / Mom / Sibling? What about the children of our military? How happy do you think they are seeing a card from dad or mom - specially made for them?

I have seen your designs and creations - there are some gorgeously stunning cards on the blogs I have visited...so PLEASE ... take time to send a few or create a few especially for those that are protecting us every minute of every day.

There are a few guidelines Operation Write Home will ask you to follow. Its nothing major. So please take some time to visit their site. (Link below) And listen - if you can’t create a card(s) -- donate $1...$5. Or however much you can spare. They accept Paypal and it’s a tax write off!!!

If I can be of any help in getting you started - please don’t hesitate to write me!

AND LAST…but not least….
Thank you to All of our Heroes!

Wow Vicki- these cards are gorgeous! Love your video too! Thanks for all your help with OWH - your video is so helpful and funny. I had heard of OWH before but this blog is really inspiring me and I am getting so many great ideas! My nephew is being sent to afghanistan in a couple of weeks and it is really bringing it home to me :( I am of course a new follower to your blog - how could i not be? You sound like such a kindred spirit :)
