Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop


Hello! Welcome to 'Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop'. If your not familiar with 'Operation Write Home' they support our nations armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to the soldiers to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. To celebrate Memorial Day they are doing this HUGE blog hop of over 134 paper crafting bloggers and Wink Wink Ink is participating in this hop.


In honor of this worthy event, Melanie, the owner of Wink Wink Ink, designed this adorable image: This cute bear would bring a smile to any soldiers face and remind them how much we love and appreciate them.


The image is colored with Copic Markers. I used blue card stock for the center panel and placed red ribbon on each side. The stars were cut with the Cuttlebug. The main image panel is mounted up on dimensionals. TIP: To adhere the stars to the raised panel, simply glue the tips that are touching the panel, leaving the other sides free.
Thank you for stopping and visiting today. Your next stop on the hop is Nicole!
And most importantly, THANK YOU to our American Soldiers who are making the sacrifice of being away from their families, friends, and homes so we can enjoy our freedom. And I also want to offer my deepest thanks and condolences to the families of these soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend, but remember to take time to honor and respect those for who this weekend was dedicated to.
Amy
