OWH World Card Making Day bloghop... with CANDY!! :)

Click on the banner to return to the bloghop
 
Welcome to Operation Write Home's
World Card Making Day bloghop!! :)
 
I'm new to OWH!!
I received an email from "The Greeting Farm" and Sandy had an awesome copic tutorial for "Soldier Ian". I was awestruck with the image of Ian and real soldiers... and I've been making cards ever since!! :)
(Check out Sandy's YouTube tutorial below)
 
My passion for creating cards for "Our HEREOS" is to be an encouragement to them as well as inspire them to write home to their family & friends!!
 
Words cannot convey my deep felt gratitude for all that they do!!!
 
Since I love 'The Greeting Farm" stamps so much... I thought I'd use the brand new
"Miss Anya Scarves" for my winter card inspiration... 
 
 
Pearlescent Paper
"Ice White" Pearl Pen for the snow
Martha Stewart "Snowflake" border punch
Snowflakes from the border & other misc. punches
Hot Fix Rhinestones & Applicator
 
Here's the OWH sketch I used...
 
 
What's a bloghop without CANDY??!!
 
I have 3 *sweet* pieces to give away!!! :)
 
I'll be picking 3 random winners who leave a comment on this blog post about the candy. What's your favorite? Let me know what you would pick 1st... 2nd... and 3rd??
 
3 random winners will be chosen on Tuesday, October 9th. Names will be posted on Tuesday as well. If you're name is posted... please contact me at... Tracy@StayTrueToGod.com and your package will be shipped right away!! :)  The first name picked will get 1st choice... the second name picked will choose from 2 and the 3rd name gets the final prize.
