OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch #59 Challenge

Hello everyone, just wanted to let you of a wonderful Blog called Operation Write Home (OWH) Stars and Stamps.  This is a wonderful way to share your love of card making with our fine men and women serving our county.  I am the daughter, wife and mother of a veteran and I'm very proud to say that I respect and honor those who serve. OWH supplies cards to anyone who is deployed outside the nation's borders serving in all four branches of the armed services.

My personal challenge is to make a set of cards (8) each week, and mail them at the end of the month to one the organizers.  I hope that you will take the time and view their blog at http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/ and get it involved in such a wonderful and worthy cause.
