Operation Write Home is a wonderful organization that supports our military (and their family and friends) by providing hope and encouragement in the form of some beautiful handmade cards (for our troops to send back home) as well as by sending Any Hero mail to those men and women who might need some love from home. They also host an annual blog hop each year and you get to join in the fun!

2013's Blog Hop will focus on sketches again and also the theme is Thank You. We really want to up the ante on Any Hero cards, so that's what I am focusing on this weekend.
It's late here and I was short on time due to celebrating another victory in our lives (congrats niece Britt on your graduation!) and so I made a simple Any Hero card to go in the next package. It needs some punching up and I'll play with it some more and update when I can, but don't want to miss out on the fun, so here you go!
This card is based on the OWH sketch #32 and I used Bazill Moody Blue for the base, and top layer and Bazill Peanut Cluster for the image, middle layer and sentiment layer. Inks are SU! Night of Navy and Real Red. The stamped images are from Stampin' Up! (some older sets) and the patterned paper is from Authentique (Pride collection). Technique, simply used DTP for the edges since the dotted paper looked "smudged" too. ~~ I need to go in and touch up the sentiment and I'm considering changing out that eyelet for a smaller bronzed star brad. Hmm....
As I said, this is a cute but hurried card that needs a little love and I'll be posting more throughout the weekend if you happen to make it through the rest of the blogs and want to come back and visit. Again, you can reach those wonderful sites by starting right HERE.
Also, don't forget to sign up for your chance to win a 6x6 pad of Lost & Found from me! Go HERE for the information!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and don't forget to thank a hero for their service!
