Operation Write Home Sketch Bloghop



It's time for the 2012 OWH Memorial Day Bloghop!   This year we were asked to choose from the vast library of sketches available for inspiration.  I chose Sketch #28 because it reminded me (kinda, sorta, maybe?) of the flag and I thought it made the perfect back ground for the stamp set I knew I wanted to use.
I support OWH because my own DH is a 20 year veteran and I know first hand how hard it is to be separated from your spouse and what a difference getting a card from them can make to your day.
So if you're here because you already support OWH, thank you!  And if you just happened upon the celebration go check out them out here:

You and I were thinking alike--this was the same sketch that I chose, and for the same reason! Thanks for sharing your personal story about why OWH is important to you. And, great card!

Nice job with this card! I agree that this sketch does have a flag "feel" to it. Must be the stripes in it. :) Thanks for joining in the Memorial Day hop and for supporting OWH. It's really great to know that these cards really do make a difference to our heroes and their families.
