We Love Our Heros Blog Hop!

Welcome!
Today is Armed Forces Day, so again, this is a hop to support and bring awareness to the works of Operation Write Home . You are in for a treat as you hop through this group of talented ladies! In addition to card makers making cards for service persons to send home to their families, OWH has what they call ‘Hero Mail’. These cards can be any size; not just the usual required A2. They also include a personal note to ‘Any Hero’. We call them Hero’s, because OWH covers all branches of service. These are passed out to deployed hero’s, who might not get much mail, or just passed around to enjoy news from home. Here is more info.

Thank you to All of our Heros, past , present and those who serve on the Homefront as well!

And I love the theme of this hop as my husband is a decorated Vietnam veteran. I love what OWH does for our troops! Thanks for supporting them!

And what a delightful blog you have! LOVE the pics of your cats! We have three furballs that like to think of us as their favorite humans (grin). Have a great weekend!

Hi Misty and I would Like to Thank you So much For having me on this Super Honorable journey! I am so very touched by the Mailroom on OWH...It is a huge production to get those hundreds of cards out to our hero's! I really liked the card hospital part..LOL...Your cards are awesome and I hope to be able to participate in future hops with you!!

This is so amazing Misty! i have been interested in OWH but have not really investigated it - I am ashamed to say I have let life get in my way. But my nephew is leaving for Afganistan soon and it kind of brings it home to me. i will be giving this information to his wife and my sister too. Thanks for bringing awareness to us all. Your cards are beautiful. I browsed the OWH site for quite a while and you are right, it is quite emotional. I love the mail room video, but also the slide show of the heros with their cards was very sweet. I also loved the card gallery. I am not one of those people who can just sit down and design a card - I need something to look and go from there so this will really help me. I am a new follower of you fabulous blog.

Amy said...

Great cards, Misty!! I love the first one -- never thought to use Plantin for that!! :)

When I start at OWH, I always end up at the Stars & Stamps blog to check out all of the great cards everyone is creating... But I also like to stop at the Hero Blog to read the inspiring letters and see the happy pictures... There's so much to explore over there!! :)

Thanks for hosting such a fun hop!! Can't wait for the next one. :)

I like the fact that the cards are SO appreciated and that lots of the soldiers have access to them. I wish we had this when I was serving. What an amazing organization!

Wonderful cards! I am a follower.
I like the state digistamp page--what a great idea.
