Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop 2014

Hello and welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop! We are proud and thrilled to be supporting Operation Write Home. It is such a wonderful organization and even more dear to our hearts as our design team members Tiffany and Latisha have husbands in the Army and Navy. Operation Write Home is an organization that sends blank handmade cards to deployed service members so they can write home to their families.  How amazing is that?!
Today we are hopping along to provide some inspiration to you all to help create cards for this wonderful organization! We have a giveaway at the bottom of this post, too!
To start at the beginning of the hop make sure to go here.
Nancy created this beautiful card for us today using sketch 43. Operation Write Home is very important to Nancy as her son is a Marine Corps veteran. Sending a big thanks to Nancy, her son, Ben, and her whole family!
We are also having a little giveaway today! Comment below by May 28th, and we will pick a lucky winner to win our Wish You Were Here stamps and coordinating dies which are perfect from Operation Write Home and AnyHero cards!
Thank you so much for visiting and supporting Operation Write Home!

  1. can express to you how much i LOVE your stamps. I just bought quite a few stamps and coordinating dies from you guys. Truly love your products and that they are MADE IN THE USA!

  2. Such a great card for operation write home. I am not sure but this is one of the few sets I don't own. I am rethinking buying it after seeing how versatile it is beginning to really love this set. Please thank Ben for his service Nancy I know he will love the card.

  3. Thanks to everyone who serves now or who has served in the past. My dad was in WWII, but not combat and he always felt he wasn't doing much for the country. I disagreed with him; he did what he was assigned to do to the best of his abilities. As they say "all gave some; some gave all." Nice card too!

    1. I should have mentioned how much I like the way you have used so many different Lawn Fawn stamps in the card. It's always nice to see how to get more mileage out of the stamps we already own.

  4. What a treat, two of my favorite things together again, LF and OWH. I love what Nancy did with the die. I bought these sets just with OWH in mind.

  5. I, too, have been making cards for OWH for about six months now and thoroughly enjoy it. It gives me such a sense of satisfaction to know that my hobby/passion is bringing pleasure to our heroes and their families!

  6. FABULOUS card Nancy!!! LOVE the stitched edging, LOVE the wood grain and LOVE the layered stars with the vellum sentiment too – WOW – LOVE IT ALL!!!
    THANK YOU to all who serve in the military, to their families and to everyone who supports programs such as OWH!!!

  7. I really love this card with the United States in the background and the embossed sentiment on vellum! Love those stars, too. Fantastic!

  8. I love the Lawn Fawn USA die cut and the addition of the stars & stripes was a great idea. The colors & embossing are a nice touch.

  9. This is my favorite card in the entire hop! I love anything lawn fawn, and I'm so excited to see they released dies for the critters down under stamp set. Would love to have this set as well, as well as the scripty word dies, and the new chit chat set is swesome fun!!

  10. Gheesh, my very favorite Lawn Fawn hookin' up once again with my favorite OWH blog hop. And Nancy's card is really inspiring. I love how she used so much texture, the really cool stamping, and I've loved that LF set since it was recently released….I've been wanting it since the sneak peeks happened on it months ago! Thanks for being Lawn Fawn—you guys make me smile when I look at your projects and inspire me to (buy!) create more things with LF. LOVE it!

  11. What a beautiful card. Love the US with stripes and stars. The stars embellishment is really wonderful. Thank you so much for supporting OWH and thanks for the chance for the awesome set giveaway.

  12. Thank Nancy for the great card – so lovely how it's stamped in the red and blue with the stars and tag – just wonderful. Thanks for the opportunity to win a stamp set. I love my lawn fawn stamps!

  13. What a great idea. Love the fact you have a giveaway by sumitting a card too. I'm working on some today so well come back. My cards don't have the great stamps or papers your do. TFS.

  14. As the proud daughter of a Vietnam vet and just as proud wife of an Army veteran, I apreciate businesses like you supporting organizations like OWH…Happy Memorial Day Lawn Fawn.

  15. I love your stamps!! They are fabulous! I recently got the states one and was planning to use it mainly for my travel layouts. But I really like this card. Thanks for the ideas.

  16. What a great card! So grateful for all the men and women who have and are serving our country. Especially grateful for my Father-in-law, Uncle, and both of my Sons-in-law for their service. And thanks to you for supporting Operation Write Home!

  17. Love the design of the map of the USA contiguous states with a flied of blue stars and red stripes. So creative. Wonderful set of stamps with a globe and the sentiment "You mean to world to me."

  18. Love making cards for operation write home because I know the cards are not just used by service members they are appreciate them and their family members cherish them. I'd love to make box loads of cards using these stamps and dies thanks for the chance to win them.

  19. Love it! OWH is great. Knowing so many people that are retired and active in the military, I think Sandy is brilliant for getting home made cards over seas for the troops to use!

  20. First, thank you for supporting OWH and for honoring our heroes. The card is fabulous. The starts and stripes on the die cutout are clever and so appropriate to the theme. I really like the gold embossed sentiment on the vellum. Such a beautiful design. Thanks again!

  21. Thank you for supporting OWH! The card is wonderful and I really love the way velum was used for the sentiment. "Wish you were here" resonates with me as the mom of a deployed US Sailor–and yet that sentiment is so relevant for many different situations.

  22. Big thanks to Ben! I adore the subtle blue stars and red stripes on the states die! All the details of the card are so pleasing 🙂

  23. I really like the way you used the USA die cut. I am making my first cards for OWH. I can't wait to try some of the ideas I have seen in this blog hop.

  24. Thank you for supporting OWH and a huge thanks to your team who have family members serving!!! Love what you have done with this USA die cut. Stamping stars and stripes is brilliant!

  25. Love how mimic-ed our flag on the U.S. die cut and how it's placed diagonally in front of that beautiful background – really pretty! Thank you for sharing this wonderful card and for your support of OWH and our armed forces.

  26. This card is so nice, and for such a great cause too! I love the stamp and die set. Would really love it so I could make some scrapbook pages of my holidays to America.

  27. This stamp set is one of my favourites. I wish I had it. Great work supporting OWH lawn fawn! I love companies that care.

  28. What a fabulous AnyHero card! I just love the way she stamped the USA die cut. Great color choices, especially with the browns Thank you for your support of OWH!

  29. First thank you for your families service to our country. Also, thanks to Lawn Fawn for all it's support of OWH. I'd be thrilled to win the stamps and die, since I really like the idea of the whole country and the globe. Turning the die cut into a flag was a great subtle touch.

  30. What a wonderful card! The papers, dies and embossed sentiment are all so well coordinated. Love the little stars with the twine too! Thanks so much for supporting OWH.

  31. Wow! What a fabulous way to use these products!! Operation write home is a great program. We do something similar where our work and we adopt a platoon and send them cards and other goodies.

  32. Such beautiful detail in this card! I love the antiqued feeling the inking gives and the woodgrain too. The map die-cut is a great choice for OWH cards. I first discovered lawn Fawn through OWH and I'e been a fan ever since. Thanks for joining in the hop and supporting OWH!

  33. Whew….wore myself out getting to the bottom to comment! What a fantastic card! Of course….I totally LOVE Kraft! Thanks for the inspiration – love this!

  34. Oh my, what a handsome card! The woodgrain with the rich blue and deep red, especially the touches in the die cut USA, give a wonderful rustic look– love it!

  35. Thank you, Lawn Fawn, for your support of Operation Write Home and to Nancy for her family's service. And, for creating and sharing this great card with us – love the stitching and the frayed string behind the stars – so cute!

    Thank you Nancy for your family's service!!!

  37. As someone who grew up in a military family, I can understand how important communication with those back home is. Operation Write Home is a wonderful program! And this is a beautiful card to express appreciation for all those in the service.

  38. Love this card! It's perfectly patriotic! I'm continually praying for the soldiers and their families. My brother is getting ready to go back to Afghanistan soon.

  39. Love your use of the die to create that fabulous map of America! Thanks so much for your support of OWH as well as for the chance to win some blog candy. And, please pass along our thanks to Nancy and her family for her son's service.

  40. Love the stars and stripes on the US. I always love vellum – great embossing on it. Great woodgrain background.. Really just love it all! I just realized it today but every man in my family since the early 1900's has served in the military including my husband and brothers-in-law. WOW Proud of each and every one of them! Thanks for participating and supporting OWH and the Memorial Day Blog hop!

  44. There is a lot going on here to like!

    Nancy took the time to double stamp the die cut America in a great way…that stitched border die really flows with the feel of the card…the embossed banner, the cut strings…not surprisingly for Lawn Fawn, it is a great sample!

    I love your product line btw…I have a running wishlist I keep chipping away at :0)

    Thank you so much for supporting OWH daily and Nancy please send our thoughts to your son.

  45. There are so manydetails I just love about your any hero card: the stars and stripes stamped across the USA map, the inking around the mat for the map, the woodgrain background and the stack of stars with the sentiment banner all make this an absolutely fabulous card!

  46. Great card–I love the stars and stripes on the die-cut lower 48! I LOVE your products. Thank you Nancy, Ben, and Lawn Fawn for supporting OWH.

  47. Beautiful card. That stamp is great. A loved one could mark their "part" of the country, ideas are endless. Thank you for the candy offer. I would love to receive it!

  48. So much awesomeness going on with this card. Love the USA Stamp! Love the way you did earth and sea with the background!
