"Thanks"... Eagle digi card ~ Fundraiser for OWH

**... this card is currently on it's way to a deployed soldier who is a daughter to a USASMA student.. I am chairing a group called Adopting Soldiers and we packed care packages today to send out.. and this card went in one of the boxes... Hooah!

note: I am currently taking a break from Facebook. Thank you to all who have sent me emails, text messages and phone calls asking about me.. I am truly humbled by all your love and kindness. I just wanted to take a little break to spend more time with my family.. me and my husband both turned off our FB pages.

Hello friends! Today is another special day because it is Day 4 of a benefit for Operation Write Home!! For those of you who aren't familiar with Operation Write Home, they are a non-profit group that collects handmade cards (over a million, so far!!) to send to our soldiers deployed overseas.

Some of them are Any Hero cards that we write in to say "thanks for serving!", but most of the cards are left blank so the soldiers can send them back to their families and friends stateside. It's a fantastic organization!! But, in order to send the thousands of cards that will go out during the holidays, they could really use some extra funds for shipping, and that is where two digi designers would like to help.

Katlyn, of KnK Designs has teamed up with Deedee Anderson to offer 7 digi sets that are perfect for your OWH cards - or any cards, for that matter! All of the proceeds for these sets (minus the paypal fees, of course!) will be donated to OWH. Every bit of it! You can buy the sets separately or in a bundle - Go check out KnK Designs for all the details!!

For this card I used a layout from this week's SCS Sketch Challenge #355:

On this card I used:
card stock: white, Hobby Lobby pattern paper, Stampin' UP! Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy
ink: laserjet printer, asst. copic markers
accessories: hole punch, silver brads, Stampin' UP! oval punches and Dimensionals!!!
stamps: digi stamps from KnK Designs

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
