Stampers Best, Operation Write Home and Armed Forces Day - A Celebration

Today is Armed Forces Day and Operation Write Home is celebrating with a small blog hop - or as we like to call it - SKIP - since it is a small number.  You know OWH blog hops can be huge and we have one coming up on Memorial Day - have you signed up yet.

Today our SKIP features the Operation Write Home fundraiser stamps from Stampers Best.  All the stamps we get to stamp the back of our cards are generously donated by Stampers Best - but they have many stamps for Operation Write Home - of which - $1 - is donated to Operation Write Home.  But down further - you will see the opportunity Stampers Best is offering this week end to double the donation for Operation Write Home.

Here are the two cards I made.  I wanted to show that you do not always need images to make a beautiful and meaningful card.  I used the sentiments from this set by Stampers Best.  Add some beautiful patterned paper (who doesn't love patterned paper) - and you have a card that is made to be sent to a hero.



Here is the wonderful opportunity Stampers Best is offering you Saturday, Sunday and Monday. 

1) StampersBest will DOUBLE the donation to OWH for any fundraiser stamps purchased this weekend, i.e. for each fundraiser stamp sold, $2 will go to OWH!

2) For every order that includes an OWH Fundraiser stamp, you get a FREE Statue of Liberty ClingStamp

3) As always, all orders over $35 get free shipping (USA). As a BONUS offer, any orders over $35 that include at least 1 OWH Fundraiser stamp, will also receive a FREE 3-Pack of Clear ClingStamp Storage Cards ($5 value).

These specials apply to orders placed Saturday, Sunday and Monday only.
One of my cards is being sent to a family I have met through card making - I featured them on a blog hop several years ago on Memorial Day - the Ty Edwards family - Ty was wounded in Afghanistan - so I believe not only is he a hero but also his wonderful family Anna and their two children.

I hope you have enjoyed the skip today - it started on Stars and Stamps.  Make sure you sign up for the blog hop.

You make a really great point about being able to make a beautiful card with just a good sentiment and some nice papers. Beautifully done Barb! Thanks for all you do for OWH.

Hi Barb, both of your cards are just yummy gorgeous--that's the only way I can describe them! Love the rustic Americana look! Thanks for all your hard work to set up the Blog Skip today & for asking me to be part of it.
