Operation Write Home Blog Hop with Candy
Phew! You've come a long way if you're playing in the Operation Write Home Blog Hop! Keep your energy up because you still need to play bubbles with Dudley the Dragon AND keep hopping. You can find Dudley hanging out on Dustin Pike's - Doodle Dragon Studios blog and store.
Operation Write Home is an amazing organization that supports our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as gratitude to encourage them. One of my favorite places to visit on the Operation Write Home website is the Get Inspired with pictures of the troops and their cards. How can you not be inspired when you see their smiling faces in the midst of such sacrifice on their part?
Soldiers have a special place in my heart. My brother recently retired from the Army after 20 years of service. My sister is retired from the Air Force. My uncle fought in Vietnam. And my grandpa fought in WW2.
If you would like to join the ranks and create cards for our soldiers, visit Operation Write Home for details. Deadlines are fast approaching...Easter deadline (March 18th) and Mother's Day deadline (March 31st).
Now you've had a short break, it's time to keep hopping to
Rosie at Rubber Stamp Rosie's Card Factory HERE
If you get lost along your way, go to Operation Write Home to get back on the right path. I am #111 on the hop.
Candy, candy, candy!!! Leave a comment to enter for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Doodle Dragon Studios. You could get your own Dudley the Dragon and more! The winner will be posted on Monday, March 7th. Thanks for hopping by! Hope to see you again!
