Operation Write Home Veteran's Day Bloghop Saturday, Nov. 14


Our mission: To support our nation’s armed forces by
sending handmade greeting cards to write home on, as
well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.

The hop will start on the Homefront Blog. Click the link to go to their website and please start at the "top of the hop" if you've landed in the middle of the hop. Thank you and enjoy!

To learn more about the reason why we make cards, visit the Hero Blog.

I have a blog candy. Please check it out.

I made this Thank You card for this Veteran's Day Bloghop. When I found out this digtital image at the Edith Designs, I thought that it is a perfect image for this event. I colored the image with color pencils and Copic markers. I used a corner frame punch for the frame. To give white color in this card, I put the white rig rag at the bottom.



This Merry Christmas card will be used as an AnyHero Card on next Tuesday, Nov. 17 when I have a Card Signing Event at work during lunch time with my cardmaking group.

I used an old Hero Art stamp: Diamond Pattern Tree and the sentiment from a new set, colored the tree with Copic Ciao markers and Tombow markers. I did Cuttlebug embossing with the snowflakes folder. Jewels are from the Celebration set of the Paper Company.



This is for Valentine's Day card that I am going to make more with my work colleagues in December. I used two stamps: the one big heart for background and the one with sentiment that I heat embossed. Then I did Cuttlebug embossing with the Swiss Dots. And I attached a ribbon at the tale that I put together with a heart shape button on top of it.



I would like to offer a small gift for those who leave an encouraging comment on my post. I will randomly choose two visitors on Monday, Nov. 23. My small gift will be two digital images that you can find at the Stretch N' Bubbles. I enjoyed playing with Alison's digital image that was created for Lori's birthday, one of my friends at the Card Maker. Please check her digital images and keep two images in your mind. If using a digital image is new to you, it will be a good start and you will have fun, too.

***JUST ADDED
Wow~ Alison is offering a FREEBIE digital image for this special event. This is it. Valentine Love Bird. Please go to her blog to get this freebie before the end of Monday. Stretch N' Bubbles Thanks to Alison!

  11. This is such a heartening venture. Here in Canada, the painting guild I belong to also creates and sends cards for our troops. They range from painted, thru to stamped and embossed cards in every style imaginable and are received with great appreciation. It's such a little thing we can do for our heroes!
