New Military Solider stamp sneak peek:OWH Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop!!


Hello friends!  Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today.  Here is a sneak peek of one of the new soldier stamps that will be in the inspired stamps store June 10th!!  He is called Military Soldier, because you can fill in his military service (US ARMY, US MARINE, etc.), his NAME (see the blank name badge below), there's even a place on his hat for rank and his arm for his unit!!  OR just color him in like I did if you aren't sure!

My husband just got back last year from a year's deployment with the Army in Iraq and he talked about the cards he had seen there.  I was unaware until recently about Operation Write Home, but encourage you to check out their website and see about contributing...I am!

Here's my card submitted for the Operation Write Home Memorial day Blog Hop (starts 10am ET):
The verse stamp and 'miss you' are from 2 full stamp sets in the inspired stamps online store, which you can click on to see:  (His Plans For You and 1" circle Sentiments)
