Operation Write Home: Memorial Day Blog Hop and a giveaway {winner!}


May Arts Ribbon is proud to support our nation’s deployed heroes through Operation Write Home®! This organization has sent over one million cards overseas so our service members can keep in touch with their loved ones while they’re away.  I hope you enjoy all the projects we’re sharing on our blog – and take some time to check out OWH’s blog and all the others participating, starting at the top of the hop. You’ll be inspired!


Charlene Driggs:

Red, White & Blue Card: Happy Birthday

I am so honored to be able to participate in the Operation Write Home Blog Hop. Our military men and women are far from home without the daily love and support of their loved ones. OWH gives them a way to stay in touch. Thanks OWH and May Arts for giving us a way to be encouragers to our brave men and women in the military.


Courtney Lee:

Red, White & Blue Card: Love You

This hop means something extra special to me this year as my best friend is being deployed on Monday to the middle east. She is a single mom and has to leave her two children behind here in the states. She is a doctor in the Air Force and will be taking care of our soldiers but is also a pilot – which is rare in the military. I have already created some cards for her to send back to her children and I will be adding this one to the bunch so she can send it home. I cannot wait for her safe return. 


DeeDee Catron:

Red, White & Blue Card: Thank You

I support our troops for the simple fact that they support me by dedicating their time, energy, and precious moments to protecting a land where I get to be whatever I want to be. Making a few extra cards here and there gives me the opportunity to help them stay in touch and not be lost.


Jen Shears:

Red, White & Blue Card: Love You

 I don’t take our freedom for granted. Ever. Our troops and their families sacrifice so much so that our country remains strong & free. Donating cards to OWH so that those families can still feel connected is a joy!

Thank you to those who serve, past or present, and their families!

I would love to send my thanks to everyone serving and making the world a better place.  Thank You and your families for all you do.

Being the member of a family with a long military heritage I understand the courage and sacrifice of every soldier and the families that support them, many thanks to them all.  Click Here for details on this card. 


Lalo IK:

Red, White & Blue Card: Thank You

Sometimes a simple card means so much more then the catchy saying written and the picture on the front.  A card from a loved one far away is like that warm hug you can’t have, that “I love you” you can’t hear everyday.  If one of my cards can help convey that powerful feeling, then I’m more then happy to share it.  That is why I support Operation Write Home.  Click Here for more details!

Red, White & Blue Card: Missing You

It is an honor to give back to these heroes, even through the smallest gesture such as a handmade card.  And because they are missed by their loved ones every day, this “I miss you” card will hopefully brighten a heroes day!  My gratitude is immeasurable…thank you for your service!

Red, White & Blue Card: Love You

This fun card for Operation Write Home started with the starry background and grew from there!  I love how the stitched edge really sets off the dark night sky, and thanks to a little trick, my yellow thread perfectly matches my May Arts bakers twine.  Click Here for more details!


I created my card using some subtle patterned paper and let the satin cut out stars do all the talking. I love that you can cut these apart so perfectly. I used sketch #165 as a base design on my card and jazzed it up with May Arts goodness.  Click Here for details!
