OWH is Important Business

Another set of cards made for our heroes. I just love doing this - it makes my soul soar.

All the patterned paper is Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket. The cardstock is Bazzill except for the first card, whose base is Gina K Pure Luxury. Lovely Labels and Inside and Out stamp sets (both by Gina K Designs) were used on both with Memento inks. Lovely Labels are wonderful - they were created to fit perfectly with several of the most popular Spellbinder's Nestabilities Labels dies. LOVE!!♥

These projects, while created for our soldiers, were entered in Gina K Design's Stamp TV challenges. What? You don't know about that place?? You really must visit - it's free to sign up, and everyone there is so gracious and helpful. Gina gives wonderful tips, freebies, and video tutorials. There are challenges you can enter to win stamp sets, and you don't even have to have Gina K stamps to play!

Oh - in case you didn't notice my two big blinkies over on the left... Yeah - those. Just a reminder that you can do something a little bigger, and that I will be joining the Bunny Hop for Operation Write Home. I will be issuing a challenge to my readers on that day, with a prize. Lots of blogs will have prizes, tutorials, challenge, great info - put it on your calendar and hop along! March 5th. Start at Operation Write Home. If you have a blog, you can sign up to join us! You don't have to have a tutorial, prize or challenge, it's easy!

Get your kids, or grandkids, involved in writing letters to heroes - seriously, they LOVE getting mail! Check the Homefront Blog for inspiration, and the Schools and Scouts page for guiding kids wanting to help.

Thanks, for taking the time to visit here.

  2. A beautiful card and a beautiful statement as well about how making cards for OWH makes your "soul soar"!! I think many (if not most) of the OWH family would whole-heartedly agree.

I adore comments. Make my day brighter and leave me some love!

Welcome to the Bunny Nest! I host rescued animals in a small in-home setting. Currently, I host 3 bunnies and 2 kitties. These animals will be socialized and housed for the entirety of their lives in my home. They inspire my crafts, and I use any proceeds to pay for their needs. Thanks for visiting!
