Welcome Spring


Supplies: Graphic 45 Patterned Paper; Stampin Up and Hampton Arts Stamps; StazOn and Ranger Distress Inks; Vintage Sheet Music; Grosgrain Ribbon and Pin; Button and Waxed Thread.

Happy first day of Spring.  I'm participating in the OWH blog hop today. I love this organization that was started by a dear online stamping friend who has the most giving heart. OWH spreads a bit of cheer and love to those who give so much to us.  I send in cards a couple of times a year from my stash of ever growing stamped cards that get sent out to soldiers overseas who then send them back home to their loved ones.  My cousin's son and our dear friends' son are both currently serving overseas.  I hope they can send a beautiful card from OWH to their lovely wives.  

If you'd like to get involved with sending cards, here is the link with all the information you need to get started along with shipping addresses and important do's and don'ts to make it all run smoothly. Here's a link to the top of the hop, if you started in the middle.   

Next stop on the hop: Kelly's beautiful blog.  Thanks for stopping by today.
