Welcome to the Veterans Day Blog Hop. If this is your first stop, you may want to start at the beginning of the hop which is here at the Home Front Blog. Today's blog hop is being hosted by Operation Write Home. Operation Write Home is a wonderful organization that collects handmade cards to send to our nation's deployed heroes (troops) to send home to their families and friends. They also collect Any Hero cards to send to heroes that aren't getting much mail or just need a lift. I'm proud to be a card maker for Operation Write home and our nation's heroes. I hope you'll join us in making cards. Operation Write Home makes it so simple to get the cards to the troops. Their web site contains all the info you need to get started.
With Veterans Day in mind, I'd like to give a heartfelt thank you to the many people who have served and are still serving our country. We wouldn't have our wonderful USA if it wasn't for you.
My first card is an Any Hero card. Any Hero cards are sent with a note written in them and the envelope is addressed to "Any Hero". Upon reaching their destination these cards are handed out to those who need them the most. I apologize for the poor photo of this card. It came out dark looking no matter what I did.
My second card is a Valentine for a hero to send home to family or friends. Valentine's Day is the holiday that we're making cards for at Operation Write Home at this time. This is a fun little shaker card. I thought it might be something a bit different to send.
I'm offering this set of Inkadinkado Patterned Birds and Bugs clear stamps for my blog candy on this blog hop. All you have to do to win is leave me a comment. My candy is open to everyone. My blog candy will be open through Monday, November 16th. I'll announce the winner in the evening on Tuesday, November 17th.
Thanks for hopping by today. Your next stop on the hop is Maryellen's blog.
