Help a Hero and Earn a Free Digi

Welcome and happy World Card Making Day!
I hope you're having a great time hopping around and finding tons of inspiration.  Operation Write Home is a tremendous organization that consists of hard working, dedicated volunteers.  Combined with the card crafting community, they provide gorgeous, quality greeting cards for our deployed military heroes to send back home to their family and friends.
This year's World Card Making Day blog hop theme is Thank You cards for a hero to send home.  You can use one of the many OWH sketches or use one of your own.  Post the sketch or link to it in your post. You can also create  Any Hero Mail with notes inside written TO the hero from you and/or your family.  Please follow guidelines when making a card for OWH.  You can read about that on the OWH Guidelines page.

Oak Pond Creations Illustration Studio is offering *one free stamp of choice when you purchase
I will donate a portion of all OPC American Flag sales during this event to OWH
*At checkout, include a message with your choice of one stamp from my Etsy Studio and
I will e-mail your stamp to you.

My inspiration card was made by following OWH Sketch #173
 
My card was made with Southworth Linen and paper from my stash.

Hugs and Happy Crafting!
