Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop for OWH

Welcome to the next stop on the Memorial Day Bloghop for OWH.

Some of my favorite holidays are the ones that no gifts are involved. Memorial Day falls in that category. If is about family, long weekends and celebrating our wonderful USA.

Before I was a military Mom I loved my country but that has a whole new meaning to me now that I have a son that works daily protecting our freedom.
He just returned home from his 2nd deployment. He is well, safe and back on a base in the States. That makes me one happy Mama.

He is the reason I make cards for OWH. Need I say more? Thank you to him and all the other many, many men and women just like him all over the world.

This is my card for this blog hop.





This is over 100 cards that I have ready to mail to OWH. The last blog hop I told you for every comment left I would make a card for OWH. It took me a while but here they are.


I will do the same for this hop. So start leaving those comments.
I will also pick two random winners on Tuesday, June 1 for these really cute stamps.
Then YOU can start making cards for OWH too!!


The next stop on the hop is

74 comments:

  1. So glad your son is back in the states. My son just signed up for a second year in S.Korea, I am not happy to be away from him for two years but its what he wants so, I will support him.
