We Love Our Hero's!!

We Love Our Hero’s Blog Hop 5/21
Today is Armed Forces Day, so again, this is a hop to support and bring awareness to the works of Operation Write Home . You should have arrived from Jenny B of Crafty Diva Lounge, if not please start at Misty’s, so You don’t miss anything this wonderful group has to offer. In addition to card makers making cards for service persons to send home to their families, OWH has what they call ‘Hero Mail’. These cards can be any size; not just the usual required A2. They also include a personal note to ‘Any Hero’. We call them Hero’s, because OWH covers all branches of service. These are passed out to deployed hero’s, who might not get much mail, or just passed around to enjoy news from home. Here is more info.

Thank you to All of our Heros, past , present and those who serve on the Homefront as well!

I chose to use digital images from Digi Scrap Kits.  I love the Americana images.  The card base measures 6 1/2 x 5 and each layer is cut 1/4 of an inch smaller.  If it was not for our Hero's this would not be the land of the free, I am so grateful for all they do for us and the sacrafices their families also make for our freedom.

Your next stop is my sister Patti!!  I know she has something very special to share with all of you.
