Stamper's Best OWH Blog Skip


WELCOME!  If you came here from Marlene's blog, you are on the right track.  If you just happened upon my post, you can go to the OWH Stars & Stamps blog to start at the beginning of this fun blog skip!

Stamper's Best is releasing 3 new stamp sets designed by Operation Write Home's leader extraordinaire Sandy Allnock.  These are fundraiser stamps, so a portion of the proceeds will be donated to OWH.  Thank you, Stamper's Best for all you do to support our troops and their families!

Stamper's Best has other fundraiser stamps for Operation Write Home, too.  Click HERE to see another card I made with a digi stamp that only costs $1!

To celebrate, some of us on the blog team are participating in a skip to spotlight these new sets.  Here's the best news of all for you.  If you buy 2 of these sets, you will get the 3rd set FREE!  What are you waiting for, click HERE to go shopping NOW!

I will be giving away some blog candy from My Favorite Things (these stamps and dies were donated to OWH - thank you, My Favorite Things!).  How to qualify, you ask?  (1) Become a follower if you aren't already and (2) leave a comment.  Easy peasy!  I will choose a winner on Sunday night by 9 PM Central and announce the name here on Monday morning.  So be sure to come back to see if you are a winner.  The winner must claim their prize by Wednesday!



The next stop on the blog skip is Sandy Allnock's blog - what could be better than cards made by the person who created the stamps?!  Have a great time and come back soon.  :-)
