Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Several members of my family have served in the Marines and I admire the strength it takes to protect the freedom of others while being away from your loved ones. This is just one very small way to show my appreciation to those who serve our country!
Pictures will be posted next week of the card making event for OWH and all of the cards we make. Here you will find a sampling of 2 cards we are making. Enjoy all of the bogs participating today!!
