OWH Veterans Day Bloghop!

Happy Veteran's Day weekend everyone! :) Veteran's Day has to be one of my favorite holidays! So I figured why not participate in this blog hop!

And on that note: I am participating in my very first bloghop! I am so happy that OWH is having a special blog hop on Veterans Day Weekend!!! :) The theme is VALENTINES! Awww how sweet right?

Before we get to all the fun stuff, lets take care of business. If you have the time, please vote at Joanns - http://www.joann.com/CraftForaCause for OWH. :) It helps with much needed shipping costs. We all know it gets rather expensive! Currently the deadline for Christmas cards has passed, so lets get to moving on to the upcoming holiday of VALENTINES DAY!!! The deadline for Valentines Day cards to be sent to the shippers is NO LATER THAN January 7th of 2011! So get to crackin!

If you are following along in the OWH Blog hop, you should have followed me from Patti at

what are you inking?, If not, you can start from the beginning of this wonderful bloghop at : Homefront at Homefront Blog . So now on to the fun stuff!! :)


Here is one of my MANY Valentine's Day cards:

If you are a first time reader of my blog, then you must know about me that I am a HUGE Bombshell Stamps fan. :) My SU demo Lena makes fun of me because I typically use my bombshells on pretty much every single card I make. They also make PERFECT Valentine's Day cards... Especially for men.

She is stamped on watercolor paper, and colored with Prismacolor (light peach), and SU Poppy Parade, and accented with Black Bic Mark-its. The Gold Ribbon I hijacked out of my SU Demo's random stash of ribbon.

Thanks for joining in on the fun. Next lovely cardmaker on the blog hop is Velda at 

Old Stamper. She has some fun things in store for you! Enjoy your Veteran's Day Weekend, and thank a former or current military member. Tell them how thankful you are for your freedom :)

I think you are right, some serviceman will love receiving your card. Have a great weekend.

Fun vintage image! Sure to get some grins... wouldn't be surprise if she never gets sent anywhere and just stays where she arrives as an old-fashioned "pin-up" girl.
