Cards for Heroes Blog Hop!

If you are looking for my ArtfulINKables Saturday post, please scroll down)

Hi - and welcome to your next stop in the Cards for Heroes Blog Hop! If you happened to stop here first, be sure to go back to the FIRST STOP and start there so you don't miss out on any of the cool projects or prizes!!!

It's Memorial Day weekend...the start of summer, but more importantly a time to remember all that our service men and women have done for us and our country. Cards for Heroes is an awesome organization...think of how many lives are brightened by being able to send cards to the troops so that they can share them with their loved ones. I am fortunate enough not to have had to send anyone overseas but I am so thankful for everyone currently serving and for my grandfather, dad and father in law who served as young men. I'm happy to say that some of my own cards have been sent to the troops on several occasion and I hope those cards brought a smile to their faces and the faces of their card receiptients.

DRS Designs has some awesome patriotic stamps and I was able to put together a military card set in no time at all thanks to these images and a simple sketch.

Here are individual shots of the set...and the postage frame images to go along with them!









I stamped The Soldier of America (L918) sentiment/poem in versamark on the red panel, at an angle and then stamped it again on the inside of each card...



Here is another shot of the two patriotic postage frames...I stamped them in blue stazon ink so that they would not run if they got wet in the mail...



As you can see, DRS Designs has a stamp for everything you need a stamp for!!!
