Missing You - Operation Write Home


Welcome to my stop on your weekend hop!
          I hope you are finding inspiration from the cards, comments, & card-makers to join and support this mission! You too can help a hero, with just the little bits of paper you may already have at home!
I'm sure you can tell that as we make these cards for our service members overseas, a lot of love and thankfulness are folded in and glued on with every embellishment. I know mine are... 

Missing You
 The card I'm sharing with you today is a quilt style card. Its made by taking little strips and gluing them to a sheet of card stock. Then I ran the sheet through a texture folder, and followed with a die cut. Its then layered onto a card base which has "Missing You" printed all over the background. I added a few paper roses I made from more strips, and two tiny tags - also printed with "Missing You".

I hope you'll make time to visit Operation Write Home's web pages and Facebook page - and share them with your friends and family!! OWH truly does works of the Heart, and your help making cards and/or donating to cover postage costs can make a difference. Read how something so simple as a card can connect some of our National Treasures - our Troops - with their loved ones who serve here at home! 
My deepest gratitude goes out to 
our Heroes and their families,
Thank You!
