You Are One Day Closer ~ Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Missing someone gets easier everyday because even though you are one day further from the last time you saw them, you are one day closer to the next time you will. --Author Unknown



Hello and Welcome!!
Such a poignant theme this weekend for Operation Write Home's Memorial Day Blog Hop: Missing You. I hope as you travel the Blog Hop this weekend that you will be inspired to contribute a card or two (or hundred) to this fine group so that a Hero overseas will have a really special card to write home a message of love – connecting the cardmaker, the sender, and the recipient! Such a blessing to be so useful!

Please visit this website for more information! http://www.operationwritehome.org/ Their mission: Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.

Have a table set out at your BBQ this weekend and let folks write a thank you note to Any Hero that you can include in your next donation!! Mail from home is the #1 request from deployed warriors; adults and children alike can encourage heroes by writing notes to include in the boxes!

This is my 3rd blog hop with Operation Write Home. I am sharing my cards made in the My Digital Studio crafting program from Stampin’ Up!
I say “crafting program” because this is so much more than a digital scrapbooking program!! With this digital software you have access to all your favorite Stampin’ Up papers, punches, accessories, and stamps – in all the Stampin’ Up colors you love. You are able to quickly customize a layout – card or scrapbook page – and print it out! You could be done, mail or wrap it up! But you can also use the print outs as a foundation and add even more embellishment to the printed piece – known as Hybrid crafting. Hybrid crafting is perfect for large projects and group projects. You can produce one, or a dozen, but ultimately save time and money creating something unique and special!

I started with a Base Card: Red White and Blue background with some star accents. Pretty patriotic, and look how easily it can be transformed into Birthday, I Love You, Miss You, Congrats! Enjoy the power of possibility!
Click on the images to see them larger.

Simple and easy : print multiple prints of the Base Card and add punches, ribbons, brads and your sentiments. But Special! Hand made cards are really held together with love and good wishes. Won’t you send some of yours to a Hero today?

Your Next Stop on the Operation Write Home Blog Hop is to the fabulous new Tuesday Throwdown blog! This is a challenge blog geared towards stamping or anything fun and crafty incorporating the use of paper crafting supplies. Enjoy!

The words Thank You will never be enough, so as you hop on I'll send you with you some Quotes that give expression to my feelings:

"I would thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for You my heart has no bottom." – Anonymous
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. ~Joseph Campbell

How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes! ~Maya Angelou
The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. -General Dwight D. Eisenhower, D-Day 1944

Blessings to you and yours,
and may you quickly cross off those days on the countdown to Home!!

and as always,
Happy Crafting!
