  25. I always love the cards on this blog, so inspirational and unlike most blogs/sites don't go overkill on the hard sell on the products. It's always a pleasure to view this blog again and again.
    You are so generous giving your support.
    Promise to not change the way you do things and you will always have at least one fan.

  26. I'm a military brat and married to a military member and I appreciate the thoughts shared. Love the cheer & laughter in these cards!

    So glad to see businesses supporting OWH in their mission to support heroes and their families!

    Much love!

  29. What an incredible amount of talent and inspiration provided by the design team – thank you! I'm lovin' the stamps and papers they chose to use – so many bright and cheerful colors. Thanks for supporting OWH!

  30. I remember when my husband was sent on a remote to Spain in 1990. Our kids were very little and I was not handling single motherhood very well. I would get letters from him on yellow notebook paper that I still have in a scrapbook. While yellow notebook paper was not great, it was better than most other options. This is why I make cards for our troops. Thank you for supporting this generation of troops.

  31. Great cards! I'm so happy to see some of my favorite retailers participating in the OWH blog hop! Just makes you more special than you already were (which was hard to manage, but you did! LOVE my Lawn Fawn stamps!)

Thank you Lawn Fawn for being a part of this great cause, I myself have made cards for OWH and cannot think of a better way I can help in my own way to say Thanks!
    Crafty Hugs,

  38. These cards are just beautiful and the story behind why these are being made is touching.

I'm happy to be apart of this!

  42. What fun to see the different "personalities" in your cards, The smiley clouds on the first card are a great touch, and I love the ladt card in red white and blue. Thank you for supporting OWH!

  43. Awesome cards. They are all great. From a veteran's view point, OWH is the best thing in the world, from the spouse of a veteran OWH is the greatest thing in the world. Being able to send cards home to loved ones is the best gift we as civilians can give those that serve.

    Thanks to all those serving and their spouses and families wherever you are at this time.

  44. Definitely going to make several cards for this cause! I LOVE card making and, except for at Christmas time, I generally make more than I can actually use!

  47. Thanks so much for sharing these stories from your DT members again. It's always nice to hear that the cards that we make for OWH mean so much to the soldiers and their loved ones. I have a DD that was stationed in Iraq for 18 months. I made cards for her unit before I heard about OWH, but was happy to hear about them when she returned. ALl of these cards are fabulous! Your DT always does such fabulous work! Thanks again for your support of OWH!!!

I love the cards that were made for this hop and the letters from your design team members brought tears to my eyes. Making cards for OWH for a year now has been such a gratifying experience, one that I plan to continue as long as we have folks defending our freedoms so far from home. Thanks for your support and thanks for offering a giveaway.
