Thanks for joining the Operation Write Home hop today! I’m so proud to support OWH. My Dad is a Vietnam vet and has always said that no matter what you think of your government’s involvement in a war, is it your duty to support the troops – they are doing their jobs and just trying to make it back home to their families. From the very little he’s said about his experiences coming home from Vietnam, I know that it wasn’t easy. That makes me sad and angry; while there are many things I cannot do right now – as a mom of two little girls busy managing a household – but I can make cards so that our troops can keep in touch with home. Freedom is never free, and I’m thankful for each and every one of our heroes.
I have two cards because I couldn’t chose which I liked the most:
I love the first as it’s a very non-traditional color scheme for Christmas. The paper is from Basic Grey (the Jovial collection), which is just classy and totally FAB. It was $$$$ (IMO) but worth it! LOL The stamps are from Unity Stamp Co – Jillibean Christmas Eve Chowder (which are on sale now here!). The embossing folder is Sizzix evergreen, and I adore it.
The bottom card has some random Christmas DP – I have no clue where it’s from, sorry. The sentiment is the same Unity stamp set as above, with some dollar store bling.
Leave a comment and tell me which is YOUR fave! Thanks for looking! 🙂
