Thanks to everyone who left comments and/or subscribed to InkPaperStamps as part of our blog warming festivites, which wrapped up Christmas Day.
As promised, The Dog and I have written a check in your honor to Operation Write Home.
(Okay, I wrote and The Dog supervised. . . after which tedious task she demanded a snack.)
These funds–$212.96, to be precise–will help defray the cost of postage to get handcrafted cards in the hands of our deployed heroes.
Imagine all the love and care those cards will carry to our heroes’ loved ones back home!
So, one last time in 2010, The Dog and I say: Thank you all for being a friend of Operation Write Home–and of InkPaperStamps.

The ‘Square Merci’ thank you card was created to accompany appreciation gifts to the good people at some of our favorite local businesses–and is shared here today in honor of all our friends in cyberspace.
