Operation Write Home Memorial Day Sketch Blog Hop 2012

This Memorial Day weekend Operation Write Home (OWH) is having the biggest, baddest blog hop on the net.  There are over 140 blogs to visit.  For this hop each participant had to use at least one of OWHs weekly sketches to make their card.  All the sketches can be found here.  To find a list of all blogs participating in this hop, please visit the OWH blog here and it contains a InLinkz to each blog. 

OWH is an organization that provides our nation's armed forces with blank handmade greeting cards to write home on as well as "Anyhero" cards of gratitude to encourage them.  If you are interested in making cards for this great cause, please visit the Operation Write Home webite here.

For my card, I used sketch #74 and the Hero Arts OWH set, All the Time.


Stamps Sets:  Hero Arts, All the Time
Cardstock:  SU! Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Midnight Muse
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Misc: Half Pearls, Scalloped Border Punch
