A Tribute to our Troops - our Heroes!

OPERATION WRITE HOME'S BLOGHOP is finally here! What a privilege to be able to participate in this incredible bloghop! There is a lot of talent represented on this tour but even more, there's a lot of love and support for our troops - the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect the freedom that too many people take for granted. My own Dad proudly served 2 tours in World War II and I am so thankful for his service.

This card was created on white card stock, using torn strips of red, and a torn block of navy. The images are from Operation Write Home. The lamb got some help with the addition of googly eyes, "wool" from a dryer sheet, and a blue bow. Miss Ewe represents how we all feel about our loved ones who are far away.
The next card has a navy background, with cut out red stars, and a sentiment that I printed out and glued to my stamped "HERO". The digi image is again from Operation Write Home, colored with markers.


This is a weekend to remember not only the heroes of years gone by but also to remember today's heroes as well. They deserve our thoughts, prayers, and respect today and EVERY day! Thank you for your service to this great country of ours! GOD BLESS YOU ALL! Have fun on your tour!

Your next stop will be with Linda at Nana's Notes - http://www.nanaslittlenotes.blogspot.com/
Have fun and happy hopping!
