Hello and welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop! It’s Libby here today, sharing a card I made featuring our OWH Lil Hoot set! Operation Write Home is a wonderful organization that supports our nation’s armed forces by sending blank handmade cards to “write home” on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. The idea is to “help heroes keep in touch with home”. Lil Hoot is one of several stamp sets OWH partnered with Hero Arts to create - 25% of the profits of the sale of these sets will be donated to Operation Write Home!
The theme of today’s blog hop is red, white & blue! I chose some red & blue papers from an older Studio Calico paper pad (Autumn Press) I had in my stash. The sweet little pair of bears from Lil Hoot are colored with colored pencils. There were several card categories to choose from for the hop - I went with “missing you cards”. I can picture one of our heroes overseas receiving this card, and in turn sending it to his or her own little baby bear he or she is missing back home!
If you’d love to make a bunch of cards to send in to Operation Write Home but don’t know where to get started, check out the OWH card sketches! There are so many card ideas available! I was inspired by sketch #217 for this card.
And now - how about a little giveaway?? I have a copy of Lil Hoot up for grabs - a perfect set for creating cards that our soldiers would love to send to their families! Just leave me a comment here by Monday night, and we’ll announce the winner next week.
Head over to Operation Write Home and see the full list of blogs to visit! And have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, but also pause to remember the reason for the holiday - our heroes who sacrifice everything for your country.
