Welcome to The Stamping Boutique's 911 Blog Hop

 Welcome to my blog and thank you for visiting!

I hope you are enjoying The Stamping Boutique's Blog Hop honoring those who are fighting the war after the effects of 911. If you arrived here from Christy's blog you are on the right path.

It is so important that we remember all of those who gave their lives and those today in harm's way everyday protecting all of us.

Please make sure you leave a comment on each blog and then go to The Stamping Boutique's Blog to leave a comment and receive a special gift.

My card for today's blog hop features Patriotic AJ. I think that this is such an incredible digi and it was so much fun creating this card with him. I printed the image twice coloring the flag on the first image and AJ on the second image. I used Prismacolor pencils and Copic markers for all of my coloring. I then cut AJ out and mounted him to the flag image using pop dots for depth. The cardstock layers are also attached with pop dots. To finish the card I punched the corners with a photo corners punch and added the little star ribbon. The brim of AJ's hat and his shoes have been coated with Crystal Effects for dimension and sheen.

I will be sending this card along with several others to Operation Write Home, a wonderful organization that makes sure heroes all over the world receive cards to keep in touch with home. Please visit their website.

As a thank you for playing along in our blog hop, I am offering one of you the chance to win a free digital image from The Stamping Boutique Shop. You may select one image that you would like. To enter please leave a comment on my blog. The winner will be chosen at random and  I will announce the winner on Sunday, September 12 at 5:00 PM EST. You will have two days to contact me with your selection.

WOW! I think I may have already mentioned, but I really like how you used the photo corners. For some reason, I always forget little details like that and it really makes a BIG difference!

We all need to tske a moment and remember the terrible tragedy of 9/11, and pray for those that dies that day, and also for their families, and our troops who are working so hard to restore our peace.
