Please click on the link above to check out all or some of the card makers honoring our military men and women.
I am in the process of putting together a box of cards to be sent to Operation Write Home. OWH in turn sends boxes of these cards to our Heroes serving in other countries to use to write home to their families. It is a cause close to my heart because one of my sons, a niece, a nephew, one of my brothers, and uncle and a great uncle all have served in our country's military.
Happy Blog Hopping!
 
OWH asked us to make a winter or Christmas card.
I had some lighting issues--- the Midnight Muse looks almost black to me.
Here is my card:
 

 
Stamps: SU Make a Mitten and Teenie Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: SUMidnight Muse and Very Vanilla
Ink: SU Primrose Petals
Misc.: SU Midnight Muse satin stiched ribbon, foam adhesive squares
Tools: SU NorthernFlurry embossing folder, Spellbinders Lables Four
