Memorial Day Blog Hop!

Welcome to my stop on the OWH Memorial day Bloghop!! If you've arrived here from Paula's blog your in the right place! ...I started making cards for OWH a little over a year ago!! It is such a wonderful program to be involved with. We are a group of cardmakers that support our nation's armed forces by sending blank greeting cards for them to write in and send back home to their loved ones. What a awesome way to honor those who serve our great nation! A sincere and heartfelt Thank You to all of our men and women who fight for our freedom!! You can find more information on making and sending in cards here ...now I have a couple of cards I would like to share with you! Both of my images are from Bugaboo Stamps! I absolutely love their digi stamps!! They are sooo fun to color! This little guy is called Kidlets-Army...Isn't he adorable?!!
...and this cute sassy Patriotic woman is Ruby USA! Both images are colored with copics.

...and now for a little Patriotic candy!! Included: Cuttlebug Stars EF, Stampendous-Biker Bee (wood-mounted) stamp, 4 spools of ribbon, Patriotic buttons-130 pcs, Studio g stamp and a pkg of flag stickers 20 pcs!

To enter: you must be participating in the Memorial Day Bloghop!
1. Leave a comment on THIS post by Midnight May 31st MST.
2. Of course I would love for you to follow me, but it's certainly not necessary to win this prize!

The next stop on the bloghop is Stamping With Grandmalee! Check out Lee's blog she has some awesome creations!! Boy...is she talented!!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Hi Tammy sweetie...
I am Country Wings, your newest follower. I absolutely adore your two cards of love. The little soldier is so precious. How creative it is. The coloring is just perfect and the miss you tags are the perfect element of surprise. Ofcourse who wouldn't love this Ruby and her sassy little self. She says USA all over her. I love the little star charm, another wonderful element of surprise. You sure did out do yourself sweetie.

I have never made a card but you have inspired me as have some of the others on the blog hop. I too want to give it a try. I am confined to the house (have been for a month with my lungs) and have an additional 2 weeks before I see the Dr. again. I am going to go through the house and see what I have that I might be able to make a card or two with.

I am crossing my fingers on this giveaway. I love the little bee on the bike with the American flag and the buttons and ribbons are just so beautiful. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to have a chance at the drawing. How exciting.

Please stop by and say hi. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Tammy, Well, I am finally making it round to some of the websites from the bloghop. Just call me Beetlebaum! I very much like both your cards, but the "miss you" card is tooooooo adorable! Have to go get that digi from Bugaboo. Thanks also for your well wishes on my surgery. I am so happy to be on the recovery side of the whole thing! BTW, I also really like your Geisha card, especially the beaded embellishment. It is so delicate and "fits" the card perfectly. Very nice. Blessings, Louise
