Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop












Today's the day for the OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop. If you are not familiar with OWH, it is a charitable site designed to provide cards for soldiers to send to their families, as well as cards of support and thanks to our heros. Please click on the link below for more information. http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/ I have recently become involved with OWH. It's a great way to give back.






Supplies used in this card, Night of Navy Card stock from Stampin' Up!, Real Red Card stock from Stampin' Up! Stamp Set is July Fourth. I used the Large Star Punch. Ribbion is from Walrmart.









So let's get started-





Here is my Red, White, and Blue Missing you card designed to honer and rember the sacrifices that soilders and their families make for us on a daily basis.












A total of 150 bloggers are participating today and there are tons of creations,blogs, and prizes.






Now for some blog candy!
