OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day blog hop!

Operation Write Home supports our nation’s armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as “AnyHero” cards of  gratitude to encourage them. We are proud to support this amazing company!

I created an “AnyHero” card based on one of the great sketches that OWH provides.

Since I have an ‘oops’ on this card, I thought it would be a good time to add a little reminder about OWH guidelines to keep the troops safe… no glitter!

When I created this card, I completely forgot and added a bit of glitter to a couple of the red stars. I have since removed those and replaced them with regular non-glittered stars. ;)

Happy hopping!

  1. Love the angled design on this card and all the stars, a reminder of the real stars of Memorial Day….our soldiers and veterans and those who gave their lives for their country!!

  2. Great card. Reminds me of a sketch OWH had not to long ago. Thank you for supporting our troops.

  3. Awesome layout on this card. Love all the elements used and especially the off set design with the beautiful stars and neat sentiment.

  4. As always, your card is amazing, Stephanie! I love your CAS design and patriotic colors! Thanks so much for the reminder about using ‘glitter’, too :-)

  5. This is super cute! I really like the simplicity of the well-placed stars and patriotic colors. This is sure to bring a bit of comfort to one of our military members serving abroad!

  6. Really love your interpretation of this sketch and how you didn’t over-embellish either the large open white or blue papers – it’s really elegant. Thank you for your support of OWH and our armed forces.

  7. I love the offset angle which ties together the patriotic theme because it looks like a close up of the side of a star. Great organization.

  8. The angled look gives the card such a unique look. It is one card that I would like to try. It is one that our heroes would love.

  9. That sketch is so much fun to use and just perfect for this hop. Thanks for sharing your talent and participating in OWH Memorial Day blog hop.

  10. Great card! I love the angle & the stars & the colors & just all of it!!! Thanks for reminding me of the glitter rule!

  11. I love your card, I remember that sketch and it seemed to me like a difficult one to use but you sure rocked the sketch! Thanks for sharing and thanks for your support of OWH
