As the spouse of an amazing man who served almost 25 years and participated in many tours over seas before retiring in 2009 from medical reasons I am proud to now be able to support Operation Write Home. Sometimes I wish I could do more as it is such a small thing to do to help them stay in touch with loved - but it means so much to them and their families!
These are the men and women who risk their lives both at home and over seas to help keep us safe and ensuring that we are able to enjoy the many freedoms we often take for granite - my heart and my gratitude goes out to them daily!
I also love how you can use one stamp set to make so many different cards by just tweaking the layout and embellishments. Here are a few more cards I made to share today using the same materials but changing up the layouts and embellishments slightly ... I will than package these up and half of them are going to OWL and the other half I will sell them to help raise money for my Run for the Cure this year...equally supporting my passions!
If you would like to support the Operation Write home initiative there are so many ways to do so ... visit here to learn how to donate your handmade cards for soldiers to use when over seas to keep in touch with their loved ones back home or please follow the link to give a cash donation ...
