OWH Memorial Day Bloghop


Welcome to Operation Write Home's Memorial Day Bloghop.  Hopefully, you arrived here from Sheila's blog, 2 Paw Prints.  This bloghop is the 2nd anniversary of my joining the Operation Write Home group of card makers.  It was the Memorial Day Bloghop in 2009 that got me started making cards for our deployed heroes.

There is always a great need for our deployed heroes to have 'missing you' cards to send to their loved ones at home.  I hope this one brings a smile to some faces.


The dachshund stamp is from Cowtown, the missing you stamp is from Lockhart Stamp Co. and the other sentiment is a clear stamp from Michaels.  Background paper is by Provo Craft.  I used Memories brown ink for the stamps.  It is a good match for my red smooth dachshund, Tex.
