My first blog hop

Hello All,
Welcome to the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Spring Blog Hop! If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop go to http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/ OWH is a great organization that sends home made cards to our US Military that is serving overseas in remote locations that have no other access to cards to send home. Being a Veteran I know how limited certain things can be when deployed so I love that I can create and thus fill their void. In the last couple months of 2009 I sent in over 200 cards. So far this year I am just over 100 with my goal for the year being 400 - so I am well on my way. Please join our crusade - the next card deadline is for Mother's Day card are due to an OWH shipper by April 1st . . . check out the OWH website or on facebook to get all the latest and greatest updates on all the goings on.


Being that this is my first blog hop and I hope you I "do it" right and you enjoy the cards I have included. Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave your comments.






Please continue along this hop by visiting Joy at http://dustypenny.blogspot.com/
