Thankful Thursday Bloghop

Hello Junkies!

It's halloween time again.  Well, not so much, but it IS blog hop time again and here's a FUN project for you- and great if you want to use twine but it's a different "twist" (get it!) on what to do with it, aside from wrapping it around a card or threading a button with it!

I'm SO thrilled to show you this, but first thing's first- if you didn't come from Sandra you're not in the right spot!  So, go back to Jenny and start there!  Then come back and see me, I've got a great video for you.  I edited it and everything!  It's got this creepy vibe to it in the beginning.

(Here's the order in case you get lost)
Heather - <------ you are here

Oh, and before I forget- Jenny is giving away 2 prizes!  She's giving away twine (awesome theme there) and she's giving away Action Wobbles.  I love Action Wobbles! they're just so nifty.  You need to comment on ALL of our blog hop projects to be entered to win, so leave the love, people!

For this project,  you will need:
11x5 cardstock

3x4 piece of cream cardstock.

Soldiers Angels- are you one?

Hello Lovely Junkies!

I have been in touch with Soldiers' Angels and I've decided to team up with them (one of SO MANY) to help bring some comfort to our soldiers.  You know that I'm an Army wife.  Charlie has been in for 16 years, and when he was deployed, he very much appreciated what the Soldiers' Angel's organization did for him and his friends.

I've decided that since he got such great care, and I had been on the letter writing team for 8 years (on and off) I am going to offer my card making services for soldiers.  My goal is to make like 30 cards a month to send.  Now, some months it'll be less, some it'll be more- obviously life happens, but I figure the least I can do is give back to those who have ensured my freedom!  I will ship them all at once, btw.  I'm not sending each card individually, that would be way too much

So, if you would like to join me in honoring our soldiers deployed and wounded warriors, I would encourage you to go to  and send a card to a soldier who needs the encouragement. :)  If you can do more, great because they need that too.

Greater love hath no man than to lay down his life for his friends.  John 15:13
