It's Red Friday and A Sneak Peek

If you're going out somewhere this evening, why not wear red to show your support for our troops?  I have Red Fridays on my blog to show my support for our troops who are serving our country so that we can remain safe and free.

Another way I show my support for our troops is by making cards for them.  I make cards for them to send home to their families and friends and I make cards with notes in them for the heroes themselves.  I send my cards through a great organization called Operation Write Home.  Operation Write Home is always looking for more handmade cards to send to the troops.  Please consider helping out.  This is a wonderful project to do with kids too.  Below is a photo of some happy heroes that have received cards from Operation Write Home.

The two main stamps on my card today are a sneak peek at some of the new Valentine stamps coming soon at My Paper Moon.  Aren't they fabulous?  It's a privilege to be able to play with them before the release date.  I'll let you know what the release date is as soon as it's ready for announcement. I love this sentiment.  The little heart stamp is from My Paper Moon also.

Here's a close up of the fabulous Queen of Hearts image.  This image was fun to color.  I used my clear glaze pen on the roses and my clear stardust pen for the card border and accents on the crown.  The white part of the card is painted with Angel Wings Shimmerz.

  • It has rained all day here!!!  It's literally showers of blessings for us since we are having quite a drought.
  • A fun family evening planned.
  • Friends - they sure do enrich life. :)
Have a marvelous day!!!

Inky hugs!

Beautiful! What a great card. And I think it's great you send cards to Operation Write Home. That's a great organization, too. I used to send cards to an Army capt. stationed at a hospital in Baghdad for the wounded to use to write home, and I can tell you they really appreciate your effort.
