OWH SPRING BREAK BLOGHOP

The The other day I was looking at cards on a blog and found Operation Write Home. I am THRILLED to be a part of

If you arrived from the Heroes Blog you are on the right track! The I've created is using an exclusive paper pack from Close To My Heart (CTMH) that will be available for purchase beginning April 15 so here is a SNEAK preview of what the paper looks like. My DD#2 will be selecting a random post to receive a little BLOG CANDY *i promise it is going to be worth it! Also I will be following the lead of so many other OWH bloggers and creating a card to send for every comment left, so be sure to let me know you've been here!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the HOP... now you are off to
Christine's Crafting Capers .

If you get lost along the way you can always return to http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org and find your way!


God Bless our Troops!
