OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop


Hi peeps, happy Memorial Day weekend and welcome to my stop on Operation Write Home blog hop. This is my first time joining the hop and so glad that I get to take part of honoring all men and women in our troops! If you come here from Melissa's blog you're on the right track. :) To start from the very beginning of the hop please go to OWH Stars and Stripes.

To all the member of the troops, I want to thank you all for all your sacrifice and for your bravery. Because of what you do, we have the freedom that we're so often take for granted. From the bottom of my heart thank you for everything.

For my card, I tried to do some stitching. As I mentioned previously, I am really new at this whole stitching stuff. I couldn't get it straight at all. Well, actually I meant it to look like that. Heh... :)



The second card is simple card. I love simple card. This one again using the "Tweet Retreat" from Kathy Martin's collection.



That's all the cards that I have for today. I am finally stop shaking from my shock of  yesterday's announcement from Paper Crafts here. Pretty much spent the whole day being nauseous, because I was so excited, yet very nervous, too. So, besides blog hopping, I am planning on working on some cards this weekend. Keeping my finger cross!

OK, your next hop is to Dawn's blog!

Update: I decided to do some giveaway, I have so many things to be thankful for lately and I would love to share my  blessings. Below is what I am giving away. Just a mix match of stuff. To enter please leave comments and I'd love for you to become follower of my blogs. Following my blog is not mandatory though. I'd love for you to follow my  blog if you feel my blog can inspire you.



Thank you for stopping by here and have a great and safe Memorial Day weekend! Hugs, Vera.

Hi Vera Sweetie...
I am Country Wings your newest follower. I can't wait to see what you share next. I love your blog home.

Your card with the little mouse so tugs at my heart. I love little mice designs. They are so adorable. This creation of yours will be so appreciated by one soldier when they reach in the box of love.

I have never made a card, but this blog hop has so inspired me. I have been looking for something that I could do for the soldiers and what a wonderful gift of love. Each card will touch many lives. How wonderful.

I have been shut in for a month now and have at least 2 more weeks before the Dr.s will allow me outside. I am having complications with my lungs and chronic asthma. I have been wanting a craft to do that I could work on from my recliner. I believe I have found it. I am going to search the house today for items that I may have that I could make a few cards to send. I am so excited. Thank you for your inspiration today. Your cards are just exquisite.

Thank you for the opportunity to win some eye candy goodness. Any one of us would be so lucky to win.

Please stop by and say hi. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well. I love meeting new friends and learning new crafts from others.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
