We Love Our Heros Blog Hop 5/21

Today is Armed Forces Day, so again, this is a hop to support and bring awareness to the works of Operations Write Home.  You should have arrived here from Amy - .  If not please start at Misty's - so you don't miss anything this wonderful group has to offer.  In addition to card makers making cards for service persons to send home to their families, OWH has what they call "Hero Mail."  These cards can be any size, not just the usual required A2.  They also include a personal note to 'Any Hero.'  We call them Hero's because OWH handles all branches of service.  These are passed out to deployed hero's, who might not get much mail, or just passed around to enjoy news from home.  Here is more info:
Thank you to All of our Hero's, past, present, and those who serve on the Homefront as well!

I made my card from K & Company Amercana Paper Stack.  BLOG CANDY ALERT --- Blog Candy is My Pink Stamper Buggy Punnies.  Please just make sure that you are a follower of my blog, and leave a comment for me to get in touch with you.  Monday I will pick and announce a winner.

Your next stop is......Kathie .

Great card Anita! I have just recently vowed to start making cards for OWH and I have very little product to do so. I love K and Company - going to have to search for this paper pack. Thanks for the inspiration!
