Memorial Day Blog Hop

I am so excited about participating in the OWH Blog Hop.  First of all, what this organization does is amazing!   Second of all, it was a Memorial Day weekend in 2009 when I discovered (1) stamping, and (2) Operation Write Home.  My husband still rues the Memorial Day weekend he left me home by myself to go camping with his son and returned to find a house full of stamps and papercrafting supplies.  I found the illustrious Jennifer McGuire along the hop and she showed me that stamping was actually not as hard as I thought!  It was life-changing.  A trip to Joann's and Michael's immediately after watching her YouTube videos and, now, a full-time love of card making....

The soldiers and their family members who receive these cards absolutely love them and appreciate them more than we could ever know.  It is up to you whether you want to send an Anyhero card with a message to a soldier, or blank cards for a soldier to send to loved ones.  In other words, a win-win...

To celebrate my fifth stampaversary, leave a comment and I will draw a winner who will receive a Unity Stamp set.  It is a newer set  called "Everything Love."  I promise you will love it!

Remember to honor all our military service members, veterans, and the fallen on Memorial Day and every day.  Their sacrifices have made our country possible.

Remember to salute a hero today!!!

Friends and Mothers Day with Flair

It has been too long since I have been here, friends!  I haven't had time to create but I did use some of my Donna Downey flowers for some easy, beautiful cards! I was stunned to see I did not have a Unity Mother's Day sentiment - something I must rectify soon!  The "Mother" is from Papertrey and the label sentiments are from Altenew.   These were easy and I love the way they turned out...

Make sure you visit all the other friends and leave them some love for a chance at a neat prize:-)  Happy Mother's Day!!!!!
