 ... Any Hero Thank You cards ...

There is a wonderful organization here in the USA called Operation Write Home (OWH) that collects and ships hand made cards to our Troops all over the world. This gives the troops a way to stay connected with their families while they are serving our country. Along with those dozens of boxes of hand made cards OWH includes Any Hero Mail. These are Thank You cards with messages of gratitude and encouragement inside. OWH has created Guidelines for card makers to adhere to for the Safety of our Troops.  For more information about Operation Write Home and their work make sure you click on the links ... OWHGuidelinesAny Hero MailDeadlines for Shipping, and The Mailroom for shipping out your cards. 

Of the many Sassy Studio Patriotic stamps available in the store I chose to work with Scarecrow Sassy for today's challenge. I love that she is standing at attention and saluting, which makes her perfect in my eyes for today's challenge. I really love this image and truly enjoyed coloring her with my Copic Markers, matching her up with masculine cardstock and design paper, and adding the Star Gems.

This card will be heading off to OWH along with several other cards that I've created.

Today's design is based on the NEW Feeling Sketchy Challenge #69 that is being Sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.

The rest of the designers created some truly amazing projects to inspire you this week so make sure you hop on over to the Love to Create Blog to check them out, and then I hope you share your project with us!

Until next time ... Enjoy!
