OWH Veterans Day Bloghop


The Homefront Blog is hosting a bloghop on Sat., Nov. 14th.  Participating blogs are displaying some of the cards that they have created for Operation Write Home.   Operation Write Home's mission is to support our nation's armed forces by sending blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. Groups and individuals around the country create handcrafted cards for deployed heroes. So far 246,076 cards have been sent.

The bloghop starts at the  Homefront Blog  where you'll get a complete list of participating bloggers.  Many of them are holding giveaways so be sure to sign their comment boxes.  And while you are here please sign mine for a chance to win my giveaway!

A few weeks ago I went to a card making party and had a super time making cards with about a dozen of my friends.  We cut, glued, stamped, embelleshed, etc. and created well over 100 cards in just an afternoon.  We plan to get together again in January and I can hardly wait.  It's so much fun, but the best part is that it blesses and honors our military and their families.

  6. 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!

  7. Thank you all for stopping by during the OWH bloghop! What a super idea it was to have this and support our troops.

    If we can write to our troops or encourage them to write home and stay connected to their loved ones we are doing such a small, but still, important thing.

    And let's not forget our prayers!!
