Hi to all my blogging friends! Welcome back to see my card for this week’s Operation Write Home sketch challenge.

My son is in the Army, in AIT at Ft. Benning. He has only been in AIT for a couple of weeks, and was so happy that they are allowed to have electronics now.  Well, that didn’t last long.  Someone decided to try to rob the main PX and although he was arrested, there was mass punishment and they lost their electronics for now.  Needless to say, my soldier is not happy, so I made this card to send to him.

The stamp set is Verve’s Always On My Mind set.  The embossing folder is Cuttlebug’s Palm Leaves with matching border set. Some stitching on my sewing machine and heat embossing for the stars and sentiment and this card was done!

Hopefully he will have his stuff back by the time he gets the card. I know how he hates being punished for something someone else did. LOL don’t we all hate that?

I also made this card for:
