Good Morning Peeps!
Last Thursday, September 12th, I participated in the OWH Birthday Bash Fundraiser Card Class. The stamp set, and yummy ribbon, I worked with is the cutest ever! It's a child dressed in a bunny suit and some adorable sentiments, by MFT [My Favorite Things]. The card class is free and you can sign up by clicking the badge in my sidebar on the right. The Birthday celebration goes an all month and there's plenty to take part in. Go to the OWH blog, Stars & Stamps, by clicking here.
I used Bazzill cardstock, The Paper Studio Quatrefoil embossing folder, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and Prismacolor colored pencils.
You can go to OWH's blog anytime to make a donation. Our heroes need to know our citizens are behind them and are thankful for their service. Your donation will help pay the hundreds of dollars spent each month sending cards to them. For more info, click here. Or to donate, click here.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed your visit! I read all comments and appreciate them all.

Good Morning Peeps, and welcome!
As the banner says, it's OWH's Birthday this month and today we're having another Blog Skip. OWH has a great partnership with the fabulous Stampers Best. Stampers Best has awesome stamps in their Operation Write Home section. What's more, they donate a portion of the sales of these stamps to OWH. The link for Stampers Best is HERE.
You may have also guessed I'm one of the stops on the OWH Blog Skip. If you got here from Seongsook's blog, you're in the right place. If not, go back to the beginning by going to OWH's blog, Stars & Stamps and start from the beginning. The link is HERE.
I made two Any Hero cards for the troops using this past Sunday's sketch. Any Hero cards are specifically for the troops to let them know I think about them and their service and sacrifice. They keep these cards for themselves. For my first card I chose the set "Turtely Awesome" and paper pieced the turtle. You can find the link for this set HERE.
For my second card I chose the set "Write Soon Minnow", and also paper pieced the minnow. You can find the link for this set HERE.
I opted to keep both cards on the simple side. Card stock by Bazzill. The papers are from a 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye, called Howdy Doody, from the Miss Caroline collection. I use a little foam tape to pop the turtle and minnow up off the cards.
You're next stop on the blog skip is the talented Cindy. Please visit her blog, Cindy's Card Co, to see what goodness she has created for you. The link is Here.

As the banner says, it's OWH's Birthday this month and today we're having a Blog Skip. We're also being sponsored by the fabulous Unity Stamps. The link for Unity is here.You may have also guessed I'm one of the stops on the OWH Blog Skip. If you got here from Kristie's blog, you're in the right place. If not, go back to the beginning by going to OWH's blog, Stars & Stamps. The link is here.
My card is an "Any Hero" card and features a new set by Unity called Forever Grateful for Our Freedom, and I used all 3 stamps. I'll ask you to overlook my crooked sentiment on the largest banner. After umpteen tries to get the sentiment straight I decided, albeit unhappily, to just let it be.
I followed this past Sunday's sketch 187 to create my card using scraps in my stash. Here's the stamp set.
You're next stop on the Skip is the awesomely talented, and creative, Pam. Let me tell you, you're in for a treat! The link to Pam's blog, Airbornewife's Stamping Spot, is here.
Thank you for stopping by, hope you enjoyed your visit!
