OWH Veterans Day Blog Hop!

I am so excited to be participating in this weekends bloghop for Operation Write Home! It is such a wonderful program to be involved with. We are a group of cardmakers that support our nation's armed forces by sending blank greeting cards for them to write in and send back home to their loved ones. What a awesome way to honor those who serve our great nation! You can find more information on making and sending in cards HERE. 
I made a Valentine's Day card for today's hop. The deadline for Valentine's Day cards is January 5th. So I have plenty of time to make a few more. This adorable little image is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I used watercolor pencils and a waterbrush to paint it. I also embossed the burgundy background with my Cuttlebug Heart Block Folder. Attached everything to Kraft cardstock and there you have it! If you have arrived here by chance, go to the start of the Bloghop and join in on the fun!!
Now your next stop on this Bloghop is Art Loves Chaos! Kas has several wonderful cards posted!! Thank you so much for stopping by today! Tammy

This is such a heartening venture. Here in Canada, the painting guild I belong to also creates and sends cards for our troops. They range from painted, thru to stamped and embossed cards in every style imaginable and are received with great appreciation. It's such a little thing we can do for our heroes!
