Vintage Pretty in Pink..."Miss You"
Operation Write Home's
Memorial Day Bloghop



Welcome to my stop on Operation Write Home's Memorial Day Bloghop 2011 . This is my third year participating...my lil' sister and her hubby are in the Army National Guard. My sister is now married and has transferred from FL to the Hawaii National Guard { how romantic }. Her husband is currently deployed in Afghanistan and I am now making cards and sending care packages. Our family is so proud and grateful to them and for all of our men and women serving in the armed forces and I love doing my part by using my creativity supporting such an awesome cause...Operation Write Home!!!

Cross My Heart... we're sending lots of KISSES to our troops and loved ones serving overseas! This card is playing double duty using Sketch it Saturday sketch #108 over at Unscripted Sketches. I been having an awesome time creating for the Unscripted Sketches Design Team & I have been trying to use up things saved for this or that. This is another throw-away collage - made from leftover items & scraps destined for the recycle bin. The bits and pieces for this were leftovers from an ATC swap I did a while back. Please view the previous post for more info on this card.

**BLOG CANDY** I will be having a RAK giveaway of goodies from comments left between now and June 1st. I will include the vintage image used in this card. Good luck!!!

Keep on hopping! The next stop is
with Louise at
Trinity Paper Arts


Have a happy & safe Memorial Day Weekend! If you have ended up here in the middle of the hop, click Operation Write Home Memorial Day Bloghop to get back to the top of the hop!!!
