Cards For Heroes Mini Blog Hop!


Hello everyone...I am so happy to be posting a card tonight! It has been such a busy summer and I haven't been able to post lately!! So what a fantastic way to get me stamping again, because there is another bloghop over at Cards For Heroes. The hop starts this Saturday August 15th. We make cards for our deployed heroes. They write in them and send the cards back home to their loved ones. It's such a wonderful way to support our troops! We are working on Holiday cards now, the deadline is November 1st. So check it out and join in on the fun!! When I saw this stamp set called "Magic Holiday" from Hero Arts I knew right away I needed it. I love the little dog and cat angels. My Husband and I have a cat named Meadow and and dog named Quinn. They are truly part of our family and bring us much joy. I couldn't wait to make this card...and it went together very easy. I used my cuttlebug snowflake ef on the bg paper, the images are colored with Koh-i-noor pencils and blended with a paper stump and baby oil. I dusted off my sewing machine and stitched on the dp. Added some acrylic snowflake gems, a button and a charm. There you have it. Thanks for stopping by!

The next stop on the hop is...Cats Craft Corner. Check out her wonderful card and the use of all the eyelets!
