Hey there! If you have stopped by on your Independence Day Blog Tour for Operation Write Home - welcome to my Blog Tour Post! I have prepaed something really special for you guys today. We are going to talk about creative use of your leftover &?$#@!!!!!
Allow me to explain. I am a paper crafting hoarder. I keep everything. Right down to the tiniest scrap of paper. Even the tiniest scraps and leftovers eventually get used to make cards for the troops. . . and that is half the fun! Among my stash of "gently used" supplies I found several pieces of old letter sticker sheets and rub-ons the other day. Those a e i o and u's got used up, as did the r s t l n and sometimes y's. What I am left with is a whole bunch of left over x z's and tons of & ? * # @ and !'s. . . today we are going to talk about your leftover &#@? and what you can do with it!
I took a bunch of my leftover &?@! and added them to a camo background patterned paper and turned them into a great card. I couldn't find a good stamp or clip art for this card, so I made one up. I'd like to introduce Sarge. . . who will hopefully be making a few more appearances around here in the future. He is free to use for making cards for Operation Write Home. Free blog candy! Digi Sarge!!! &$#@ yeah!!!
Here is Sarge for you to download, and a photo of the finished product. Since we are featuring Birthday Cards in honor of the birthday of our country. . . I made Sarge using a birthday sentiment. I found that tearing the paper and adding some scribbly handwriting font made the card look extra angry!!! All in jest of course - but I do think that this would be a fun card to send. Anyone who has ever gone through boot camp knows all about &#?@!!!! This card will get a special white inside liner too - so that the sender can write lots to someone at home.
I'd like to thank you for stopping by - and in closure I would like to dedicate this card and post to one of my favorite celebrity icons - R. Lee "Gunny" Ermey. I love to watch him in movies and in shows like "Mail Call" and "Lock 'N Load" on the History Channel. This is a guy who really knows his &$#!! Since he is such a big fan of Mail. . . I wonder if he knows about Operation Write Home? If he did, I bet he would be proud. Now get out there and use up your &#@!!! Oooh-rah!!! Thanks for stopping by! Have a very safe and happy holiday weekend and remember, it is our heroes who make it all possible.
