Hello Everyone,
Welcome to Dreamland!  I hope you are enjoying the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop.  I made a "Love" card in red/white/blue.












To the inside, add a full sheet of paper for maximum letter writing space





Fold and crease the paper to fit neatly within the card











Stamp the back with the OWH stamp.
