Memorial Day OWH Blog Hop + Giveaway!

I, like many of you in the US, am excited about the fact that I have a three day weekend with my family. But MUCH more importantly, Memorial Day is about remembering those who lost their lives while serving our country… and praying for their families who have sacrificed so much. I know I am thankful and have great admiration for our country’s heroes.

Soooooo… I am honored to once again be part of the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop. (Operation Write Home collects cards for soldiers to send home to their loved ones. You can find more info HERE.) To see the MANY people playing along today in honor of our heroes, head HERE.

Here is my card. Perfect for a hero or any man in your life…

OWH has a bunch of fun sketches they share, and I used THIS one. I also used the June Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. It has a masculine feel to it… perfect for OWH cards!

I used a variety of Hero Arts Shadow Inks, too. (Supplies are listed in the thumbnails below.)

Easy peasy!

Here is a closer look at the kit I used. You can also get the stamp set separately…


To see the rest of the folks celebrating our heroes today in this OWH Blog Hop, head HERE. Lots of great talent and good people!

How about a giveaway as a thank you for stopping by today? Just leave a comment here by 5/29/13 at 11:59pmEST for your chance to win the June Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp like I used above! Good luck. (Thank you SSS.)

  1. I love your hero card. I love that little dash of patterned paper too. Thanks for a chance to win this months kit. Thank You to all Service men and women, past, present and future.

  2. What a beautiful card – love the colors you chose. I can easily see using this same card for my hubby for Father’s Day but I could also make 2 and send one to a hero overseas. Thanksfor the inspiration!

  3. I really liked your card and the way you made use of all the sentiments. I’m also glad that you are supporting Operation Write Home on your blog. I think it’s important that they get as much positive PR as possible. I’ve been sending cards to them for a while. I even got a bunch of friends together to make cards for them—what a blast! Hope others will follow your lead. Oh, and thanks for offering us the chance to win a Simon Says Card Kit. I just checked and they are now out of stock–can you believe that? It’s not even June yet!

  4. I so dearly want to contribute to the Operation Write Home! I really have to find some time! I just wanted to pop in and say a big thank you for always recommending Simon Says Stamp! I recently received my June kit and it is awesome! I can’t wait to get to play with all of the goodness! But also to attest to their awesome customer service! I was short a stamp set in my package (one I ordered with it) and Tiffany took no time in having me verify it was missing and then having one sent out right away! What a great way to be introduced! Thanks again! 😀
