Welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day weekend blog hop! I'm Jan and I get to work on the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps blog team. My job is to take care of Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps blog Midweek Throwdown Challenges. Which means I'll be choosing the challenges for each Wednesday's Midweek Throwdown at the OWH Stars & Stamps blog, finding a card maker to make a sample for the challenge and writing up the blog post for the challenge. Then... I get to go to each of your blogs who've linked a card for the challenge and leave comments and lift a copy of your card so I can show it in the slide show at the following Midweek Throwdown challenge! Now you know just a tiny bit about what goes on behind the scenes at OWH, trust me, there's a lot more!
The theme for this blog hop is red, white and blue - I miss you!
I have a link to the Operation Write Home mail room for you. They have good information about what kind of cards they're looking for, what size cards they prefer, things you should NOT use on your cards for Operation Write Home and addresses for the shippers when you're ready to send your box of hand made cards. I'm sure I didn't even scratch the surface so go check them out when you have time.
Today I'd also like to thank all our troops in every branch of service for their bravery, dedication and service to our country! My Dad was a veteran of WWII serving in Japan in the 1940's. I enjoy being part of Operation Write Home in his memory.
AND NOW.. FOR THE BLOG CANDY!!!
I have a link to the tutorial for a 4 drawer version of this box in one of my previous blog posts HERE. The cute Marine is a digi stamp from The Stamping Boutique. Hey! I'm one of their newest design team members! The paper is from my stash and the drawer pulls are made by Tim Holtz.
