OWH Blog Hop: Proud to be TSB and FBD!!

Hi and welcome! 
What a great weekend this is going to be!


I'm so proud and honored to be a part of the Operation Write Home Blog Hop!


What better way to thank our soldiers than to send them handmade cards that they can use to send home to their families and friends?


That is the mission of Operation Write Home! To date 672,400 cards have been sent to deployed heroes...91,000 in October alone!!


Because the cards are processed thru voluteer shippers and have to go through triage before being sent overseas, the time has already passed for Thanksgiving and Christmas cards.


We are now working on VALENTINE'S CARDS for our soldiers!!


This handsome fella is named AJ the Romatic and he is one of the adorable creations of Tracey at The Stamping Boutique!


There are a few very simple rules when sending cards for soldiers. Visit the website for more information! 


One of the biggest, and most important, is NO GLITTER!! NONE!!!


The deadline for VALENTINE'S CARDS is January 7th! So get your cards sent in quick as you can!


Please take a second to vote for Operation Write home in the Craft for a Cause Contest! The winner will receive $50,000 from Jo-ann's! That's a LOT of postage and envelopes for our volunteers!



This little sweetie is "Sending Love" from the fabulous collection of Fresh Brewed Designs! 


It's so hard to think about Valentine's cards and themes when we just finished trick-or-treating!


Thank you so much for visiting today!


Enjoy the rest of the hop!








Lots of my friends are offering yummy blog candies... visit the links on the right to feast your eyes on all the goodies!


You should have arrived here from Ayana's Creations.

Your next stop on the hop is:

Your cards are gorgeous!!! I am loving the little TSB boy. He reminds me of my little man. So sad I did not get around to hop the day of.. but better late than never. I will make it through them all over the next few days. I love this organization and will support them in any way I can esp through prayer. HUGS.
