We Love Our Hero's Blog Hop is Finally Here!!!!!!!

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 Darlene at, 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!

My Project:  I used regular cardstock and Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Pad to give it that weathered look.  I cut the stars, hearts and tags with my George cartridge on my Cricut. A brad holds the tag on, and the tag is inked with a gold inkpad for definition.

The back of each card has a heart, sending love

Your next stop is with Linda..
