OWH Springbreak Bloghop

Welcome to the OWH Springbreak Bloghop. Wasn't Marcy's blog just fabulous. If you didn't get here from her blog you may want to start at the beginning by clicking here so you don't miss out on any of the other fantastic blogs. (if the link didn't work try this http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/)



Here is a very simple card I made over the weekend. I cased this card layout over at Two Peas. I can't seem to stop making them. By changing the colors and images it looks totally different. I will be including this card in my next box to OWH shippers.

I make cards for our nation's heroes because it is a very small thing I can do to honor the men, women and their families that are risking it all for my freedom. My father took part in the attack at Iwo Jima many years ago. I never want to forget his service to our country. Now that he is no longer with us it is a way to pay my respect to those long ago heroes.

Please leave me a comment and then hop over to Windy's. She has a wonderful card to show you. I have been going to her blog for inspiration and I'm sure you'll find some too. Click here to check it out and to keep on the blog hopping trail.

Thanks for joining us.

Marianne

PS Please consider joining us in making cards for Operation Write Home.

Collette said...

Great card - I love the plaid. I worry sometimes that some of the male troops won't think to pick up a 'pretty' or 'frilly' card to send home, no matter who they're sending to - this one is sure to grab anyone's attention. Thanks for being with us this weekend for the blog hop!
