Operation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, is nearing the end of its mission and will be closing later this year. So if you have a stash of cards you've been meaning to send in to help our service members keep in touch with their friends and family, now's the time ... all cards need to be received by August 1st.
I'm helping to get the word out, and so are a TON of other bloggers this holiday weekend! If you would like to hop through a bunch of OWH/Memorial Day weekend inspiration, please visit the Operation Write Home blog HERE to find the list of bloggers who are participating in this holiday weekend blog hop.
Here's my inspiration card (all bold products are linked below in the supply section):
I used a beautiful Simply Stamped-Zinnias 3-step stamp set by Taylored Expressions for this card. This set makes it easy to create multi-dimensional flowers (and leaves)! The navy accent dots are from the Essentials by Ellen Bold Blooms stamp set by my sweet friend, Julie Ebersole.
The pretty Zinnia script sentiment was stamped in the center of a Folk Heart die cut, on We R Memory Keepers Love Notes 6x6 solid red patterned paper. The Solar White Neenah 110 lb. stamped panel was accented with Bazzill Whirlypop (navy) cardstock strips, and mounted with Copic X-Press It Foam Tape to a Love Notes red dotted patterned paper card base.
I hope you'll join me this Memorial Day weekend in thanking those who are currently or have previously served in our military!
