Cards for Operation Write Home

I am a veteran.

I am the wife of a veteran.

I am the daughter of two veterans.

I am the granddaughter of three veterans.

I am the niece of five veterans.

My husband and I both come from a family full of veterans. One thing you know as military member is that you are going to spend time away from your family. Whether it's for training, TDY, deployment, or a unaccompanied/remote tour.
Thankfully means of communication between military members and the family they are away from has been made easier and more frequent with the advances in technology. When I was overseas, I was so glad that I was not only able to call home, but I was able to webcam with my son even though he was too young to know what was going on the webcam quality then was no where near the quality it is now.
In these days of technologies like webcams and e-mails, we often forget how wonderful it is to see a handwritten letter or card. It's easier to scrapbook handwritten letters instead of e-mails. Sometimes seeing somebody handwriting on a letter means so much more than just the words that are written.
A few months ago one of my scrapbook buddies introduced me to the organization Operation Write Home. I love it! I wish this would have been around when I was overseas. Check it out!

So, while I've been away from my blog for the past couple of months, I've been focusing on my cards for Operation Write Home (OWH) and my Artist Trading Cards (ATCs).
Here are the cards I've been doing:



So, sorry for the long post, the long absence, and the tons of pictures. I am working on sorting my fabric stash right now as a way to neaten it and a way to get my sewing mojo up and running again. I found the idea on Pinterest and fell in love with the idea. Pictures to follow, I promise.

Until next time......
