Operation Write Home

Happy Memorial Day! Hope you are all well and enjoying the day of remembrance with your families. Nina Brackett is having a blog candy giveaway as part of a blog hop for Operation Write Home, so be sure to go visit her before tomorrow, I whipped up a quick card for it with my new set "Candles on your Cake" and one of Tami Mayberry's "Stars".
If I want to make a "Dear Hero" card, you can get all the do and don'ts on the Operation Write Home site (for instance, no glitter for one! It can make the soldiers visible at night, good to now!) I'm really glad Nina let us know about this for many reasons, one being that a few of you said you made cards for that when I did my blog candy giveaway last week and I was wondering "What is OWH?" Now I know!

This design with "time to celebrate" can be for a Patriotic of July birthday, Memorial day, or Fourth of July. Card stock is Little Boy Blue, Red Hot, White (Cuttlebugged with the Stars folder) and In the Navy (the color that looks black, sorry, it's not I promise!)

More to come, thank you for visiting today! :)
