OWH Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop May 25-27, 2013

Bloghop theme: Make thank you cards

* * *

Hello,

Welcome to my blog.  I am so happy to have you here.  If you want to start from the first stop, please click the picture above or HERE.  I hope you will keep bloghopping and have a blessed Memorial Day weekend.

Since I have already made thank you cards for our heroes to send that you can find HERE, I made AnyHero cards with notes inside written to them. 



 


 
Stamp set: The true soldier sentiment &
the Combat Boots (OWH Fundraiser Stamps)
by Stampers Best
Technique:  Heat embossing, paper piecing &
chalkboard
OWH sketches: #B-19
 
 
I am offering my blog candy that you can find HERE.  I encourage you to take the One Sheet Wonder challenge at OWH Tuesday Tutorial and have a chance to win my blog candy.  I will announce the winner a week after Tuesday, June 4, 2013.
 
My wish is to have more cardmakers to join the Operation Write Home in supporting our heroes by making & donating cards for them. 
 
If you are new to OWH, please check the guidelines HERE first. We want to make the quality cards for heroes to write back home and NO glittery cards.
 

Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Hi Seongsook,
    Thank you so much for sharing what you wrote! One of the hardest things for some card-makers is figuring out what to say and now you have given them an example of one so they can be inspired to write their own! Your cards are really beautiful!!
    Blessings,
    Antoinette
