I am so happy to be taking part in Operation Write Home’s Memorial Day Sketch Bloghop.
As I wrote in a previous post, I love what Operation Write Home is doing. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Operation Write Home, they provide hand made cards for soldiers deployed overseas to write home to their loved ones on. It makes it possible for the soldiers to send birthday cards and other special occasion cards as well. As you can imagine, there aren’t too many shops selling cards in the middle of the desert or the mountains. Operation Write Home does this through the help of hundreds of paper crafters and card makers who create and donate the cards they make to them.
I love this idea. My husband has been deployed twice and I would have loved to have received a beautiful handmand card from him. It would have been something that I would have treasured and kept. Skype is great, but it’s so nice to receive a handwritten note.
I’m still a beginner card maker and enthusiastic learner. I’ve made two cards with two of my free Crudoodle Digital Stamps, which are available on this blog, and Anna Griffin papers.
