Welcome to my blog!
We are parents of an Air Force Major, and parents-in-law to an Army Captain, married to our daughter.
Both of these men have been deployed multiple times. Memorial Day is something that we take seriously.
Today, we are here to honor those who have served and given their lives for our country.
I feel blessed to be a participant in the 2014 Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop.
What a great way to say thank you to all of our service men and women, and their families.
Not familiar with Operation Write Home (OWH)?
It's a wonderful organization, dedicated to keeping our deployed troops in touch with their loved ones.
We card makers send in handmade cards, and OWH distributes those cards to troops who have requested them. This allows our heroes to send notes home to their loved ones. Please take a moment to stop by their blog to read about the many ways they support our troops on a daily basis, and how you can help!
Enjoy the hop.
Have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend.
Remember our heroes.
And write that 'Any Hero' note today, and send it to OWH!
If you get lost along the way, just click on the photo at the top of our posts - it will take you to the OWH blog and you can start where you left off!

My cards today feature OWH sketches.
Each of the OWH sketches is fun, challenging, and perfect for cards that you might wish to mass produce for our military men and women.

Card #2 uses OWH Sketch #186.
Card #3 follows OWH Sketch #223. I had to put the upper cording on the right side, due to the image being pretty tall.
Thanks for stopping by!
