Welcome, everyone! If you arrived here from Samantha's blog, you are on the right track. If you would like to start at the beginning of the skip, you can find it HERE!
I am so happy to be a part of Operation Write Home's 2013 Birthday Bash. Every Wednesday in September we are celebrating with a blog skip with one of our partners. If you missed the skip with Unity Stamps last Wednesday, you can find it HERE.
This week the theme is AnyHero cards with Stampers Best. Stampers Best carries a selection of rubber and digi OWH fundraiser stamps and makes a $1 donation to OWH on each set sold. That sure does come in handy to pay for all that overseas shipping to send our handmade cards to the troops! Thank you, Stampers Best, for your continued support of our heroes!
My card today uses the Turtley Awesome rubber stamp set along with My Mind's Eye Oxford Lane patterned papers from a 6x6 paper pad and coordinating enamel dots. Our troops certainly are AWESOME and I thought the colors were sufficiently masculine to work for a great AnyHero card. The sketch is Deconstructed Sketch #29.
Wondering what I write in my AnyHero cards? Well, I talk about "normal" things like the weather in Texas, my daughter's activities, or uplifting news items (like royal babies!). And, of course, I always thank them for their service and for making sacrifices so we can enjoy our freedom! My goal is just to bring some of the normal activities of life to them in their not-so-normal circumstances. What are you waiting for? I challenge you to go write an AnyHero card NOW!
After you finish that AnyHero card, I will send you on to SANDY'S BLOG for some truly amazing AnyHero cards (yes, "plural" cards!). Don't forget to check back next Wednesday for another fun-filled Birthday Bash Skip!
