OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop. The start is Operation Write Home Blog. You will have come from Judy's blog, Creating My Style. The military holds a special place in my heart. My husband served in the Air Force for 8 years. I love being able to make cards for soldiers. It is a little way of thanking them for protecting our country.
Now, onto my projects. The local Air Museum has a big event this weekend. My family helps set up a table for people to sign cards to thank the soldiers. I left the images uncolored so the kids could color themselves.
I decorated this premade mailbox with Designer papers . This image is from Sew Many.
This is the second side. Now head on to Joy's blog, Dusty Penny. Have a great weekend!
