Featured Cardmaker: Nancy W., Belleville, MI

Happy Friday Everyone! This week I'd like you to meet Nancy from Belleville, MI.  Nancy doesn't have a blog so be sure to leave her some love in the comments section at the end of this post.

How long have you been stamping? 8 years

Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp/craft?
Yes one of our spare rooms is my scrapping/card making craft room. I love being in my haven!!

What are your favorite stamp/craft products?
I enjoy using stampin up and close to my heart products.  I especially like SU's cardstock.

Do you have a favorite technique?
Not really, I just love to create all different types, mixing and matching.

Are there colors you love to include on your cards?
I love to mix and match all colors.

How did you hear about Operation Write Home?
From my buddy Rhonda, who helps make these cards too.

What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?
First of all, I thoroughly enjoy volunteering for things. I have been involved in making quilts for Haiti through Lutheran World Relief and Lil Dresses for Africa  But once I heard about "OWH" I couldn't resist doing this for our very special heroes.  The wonderful people who keep us and our loved ones safe and able to have peaceful rests at night. Each card I make I try to make it extra special for our heroes, because they are so special.  I love creating cards and when I make them for the heroes I always think of their loved ones that will be receiving them.  What a very special way to thank our troops for the great jobs they are doing.

These cards are all great Nancy! I predict that our shippers are going to be seeing a lof of cards (including some from me) with candles & gift boxes made from paper scraps. Very creative and clever! Thanks for being a part of the OWH family.

Your cards are so cute Nancy, and it's great getting to know a little about you. I love how you used scraps to create those cute wrapped gifts! That's SO clever and a wonderful way to use scraps! It's so nice to have you volunteering to create cards for OWH like the rest of us :)
