"Operation Write Home" Sketch #131 "Miss you"

Another card for "Operation Write Home"!! :)

I used a rubber stamp from "The Greeting Farm" called "Soldier Ian" and colored it with Copic Markers. I think he is absolutely adorable!! Here's a link to "The Greeting Farm". They are out of Soldier Ian at the moment, but there are a lot of other adorable stamps & digi images to choose from!! You may find him by searching the web though. Here's a link to where I found him... "MarkerPop.com".

I used an assortment of brown cardstock to match the image, then I embossed the top layers with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and inked them up a bit. The words, "Miss you" were cut out with a Cuttlebug die.

Here's a YouTube by Sandy Allnock that inspired me to buy "Soldier Ian" and get involved with "Operation Write Home"!! :)

Here's the sketch I used...

"Operation Write Home" is an awesome organization that sends blank handmade cards to our deployed military to write on and send home to their family & friends. They are our amazing HEROES who are risking their lives daily for our freedom!! This is something I can do to say "Thank You" for all that they do for us!! You can also create cards FOR the heroes and write encouraging notes for them!! :)

I hope you will consider making cards for them too!!

Here is a link to check it out...

Do not be led astray by the things of this world.
But, rather be encouraged to... Stay True To God!!
