I feel much honored to be posting today. The Fourth of July has always been a memorable holiday in our family – we celebrate the birth of a nation, and the birth of my Mom! Yes, she really was “born on the fourth of July”.
You are most likely enjoying your friends and family on this special day, but won’t you also spend a few moments thinking about a deployed soldier—someone who is not able to hug their loved ones today?
Operation Write Home (OWH) has received tons of support from Paper Crafts Magazine readers, so why not join in the fun? The OWH website has all the guidelines and even features a blog where card recipients can post. (I defy you to read for more than five minutes without a tear coming to your eye). Here are a few cards I created to send.
I used Pebbles’ new Let Freedom Ring collection – it made creating the cards so easy!
Hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July, and when the fireworks are over and the last sparkler has burned out; why not spend a few minutes to create a special card for one of those who keep us free? Thank you!
I happen to have an extra Patriotic stamp set by Karen FosterDesign like the one I used on one of these cards.I’d love to give it away to one lucky winner! Comment below by Friday, July 6th at 5 pm MDT for your chance to win it!
