I am so proud of our men and women in service that I couldn't resist participating in the Operation Write Home Blog Hop!
OWH supports our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. This merry band of thousands of card makers is made up of Americans - and citizens of other nations too - who care about our military, and want to support them through creativity and encouragement. Crafters of all ages and levels of experience have participated since 2007...and are on the way to a landmark one MILLION cards! What a great way to show our support!
I started out with this great "little sailor" image from the Melissa Frances Patriotic Ticket Book, and dressed it up with lots of classic ALL AMERICAN red white and blue. I embellished the "Stars and Stripes Forever" sticker with some wire edge ribbon by simply pulling one of the wires to create the ruffle and twisting the wires together into a circle.
I hope you like it!! HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!
