OWH Sketch and Doodle Pantry

This is my second post today.  If you are looking for the Daydream Blog Hop, go back one post to here.

Doodle Pantry is once again sponsoring the sketch challenge at  Operation Write Home  which means some lucky cardmaker is going to win some free digital images just for making a card and entering it over at  Operation Write Home.  The purpose of OWH is to make cards which are blank inside to send to our deployed troops so they can write back to their family members and friends.  Please check out this WONDERFUL organization if you have not done so previously.   I am a proud supporter of OWH, sending approximately 40 cards a month.  For many of my cards, I used Doodle Pantry digital images and in every box sent, I include some thank you cards for the heroes to keep for themselves.  This is one going in my next box:

Laurie Wilson, the creator of the images at Doodle Pantry, has made up some wonderful patriotic sets as well as some sets that are very appropriate for our heroes to send back home.  You can check out some of these wonderful sets by going to the Doodle Pantry Store and searching for  "patriotic".
The image I used is from the Patriotic Eagle Color set.  The background paper (lower portion) is also included in that set.
I almost forgot to show you the sketch for this week:
I hope you will come over to OWH and play.  If you use a digital image, enter it in the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge too.  You have until April 24th to enter.
