Hopping With Operation Write Home

CLICK HERE TO HOP.


Welcome to the Memorial Day Sketch Blog Hop 
with Operation Write Home. 
I am pleased to take part in this very special hop 
honoring our military personnel.

If you are not familiar with Operation Write Home, please click HERE. Basically, their mission is: "Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them."  Isn't that awesome? Click here to get involved!

My card today is made with images by Hambo Stamps -- a proud supporter of OWH. Click here to see images from Hop Art Designs - where ALL proceeds go to OWH!
I used Tank and Many Tanks for my images. The designer paper is Glory by Authentique.  I chose Sketch #6 and turned it on its side. Click either photo for a clearer, close-up view!



Thank you to all the military personnel and their families for the sacrifices you made/make for my freedom!
