VIVA LA VERVE FEBRUARY WK4

Happy Tuesday sweeties! I am so happy to present this card today because it is an AnyHero card for Operation Write Home*.  AnyHero cards are cards of appreciation sent directly to one of our troops and is therefore very special to me.  I love writing to our men and women in uniform sending encouragement and thanks. 

Mynnette at On a Stampage is hosting a Spread the L-O-V-E campaign this year and asks that we send out or gift at least one handmade card or project each week for the rest of 2012 and blog each week about what you've given and, if you feel comfortable, who you've given it to and why. 

Of course I don’t know exactly who this is going to but I do know why.  I cannot think of a more personal way of expressing my appreciation to these brave men and women!

I made this card using the Viva La Verve Week 4 CAS sketch…but more about that in a minute. Here is my card:

The “Band of Brothers” stamp is from Stampers Best. The “Let Freedom Ring” and stars are from Verve. The stars are embossed in red.

The Spellbinders Labels Eighteen is popped up with dimensional dots and edged in Camellia VersaColor ink.

The blue and white papers are from Recollections. The stars paper is from my stash.
