Today is a day of reflection and remembrance to honor and thank all the men and women who have served this country in the Armed Forces. Each one, regardless of service or duty, played a part in giving us and maintaining the freedoms we cherish.
Crafters can honor the men and women currently serving overseas by sending homemade greeting cards for our troops to send home to family and friends. Operation Write Home began in 2007 and has sent over half a million cards contributed by hundreds of crafters and stampers thoughout the country. For more information, visit the OWH website and to find out more about weekly cardmaking challenges, blog hops and all the other online events that foster a spirit of comraderie among the cardmakers, check out the participants' blog at Stars and Stamps.org.
