I heard this recently.. and it's so true... The only thing harder than being a soldier...... is loving one. For the "Oldies But Goodies" blog hop, I'm sharing a card that I made for my son who is currently serving in Afghanistan.
It's a new Bugaboo digital image that I purchased last month... I just couldn't resist this one (plus about a dozen or so more - yikes!!!). Their little characters are adorable. As all of you know, cards for our soldiers have to be rather plain and flat for easy mailing, so I hope you weren't expecting something all fancy, 'n all that stuff!!
For the "Oldies But Goodies" blog hop, we use things from our stash that are older than six months old... and for this card, that's the paper and embossing folder, along with alphabet stamps that are super ANCIENT!!
Quickly colored with copic markers, it made a great card for a special son for Valentine's Day.
But that's not all.. I have some blog candy that is open to any commenter. Followers who comment get two shots at the drawing. So, to enter, just leave a comment and if you are a follower simply let me know in your comment. I'll draw a lucky person on Monday, February 28th.
Here's what I have that will go to one special and very lucky person.
Blog candy includes: Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Rectanges Large die, Stampin' Up Patterns Pack III (6"x6"), Clear Stamps "Days of the Week" stamp set, and Clear Stamps Series 15 Alphabet Stamps.
So, quick... be on your way along our hop.. and visit our esteemed leader and my friend, Sue Morris. She's next on our hop.
Thanks so much for stopping by, friends. Have a fantastic day and be safe in all you do.
