OWH Blog Skip 5-19

Thanks for stopping by and for joining in the OWH Stars and Stamps blog skip.  If you arrived here from Beth's blog, then you are still in the right place.  If you just happened here, you might want to go to Operation Write Home to start at the beginning to play along with us in the skip.

I decided to do a card that can be either a thank you card or an Any Hero card.  I used a sketch from a make 'n take at Scrapbooking Made Simple a couple weeks ago as my inspiration.  I didn't follow it exactly, but it is recognizable.  The stamp I used from Stampers Best is E Pluribus Unum.


Materials used:
Recollections black cardstock. Prima dp
GSP 110 white cardstock
Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black stamp pad
Stamps: Stampers Best E Pluribus Unum stamp, and My Pink Stamper sentiment

The stamps we are using for this skip are from Stampers Best. Usually they donate $1.00 from the sale of each stamp set they have made with OWH in mind. However, this weekend here is what they are offering:

1) StampersBest will DOUBLE the donation to OWH for any fundraiser stamps purchased this weekend, i.e. for each fundraiser stamp sold, $2 will go to OWH!

2) For every order that includes an OWH Fundraiser stamp, you get a FREE Statue of Liberty Cling Stamp

3) As always, all orders over $35 get free shipping (USA). As a BONUS offer, any orders over $35 that include at least 1 OWH Fundraiser stamp, will also receive a FREE 3-Pack of Clear Cling Stamp Storage Cards ($5 value).  Check them out here at Stampers Best

These specials apply to orders placed Saturday, Sunday and Monday only.

Leave me a comment and then skip on over to Cindy's blog to continue the skip.
