Let's Hear it for the Military New Release ***GIVEAWAY***

Welcome back friends to the second and final giveaway for today!  Our first one was launched earlier this morning with your opportunity to win either the Marleen's Swing set OR the Leesa's Swing set.  If you missed it, you still have time to submit your answer for your chance to one of those sets.  Simply scroll down one post or click HERE to open it up in a new window.

Right now it is time to showcase three more sets!  It is important that we honour the people who keep our countries safe.  There are so many military men, woman and families out there who could surely benefit from some TLC (tender loving care--for those unfamiliar with the acronym).  How about sending a card with one of these great sets?!

Did you know that children of men and women on active-duty in the military are respectively called "military brats"? That is because children who grow up immersed in military culture are actually associated with a unique subculture and grow up with a unique cultural identity.  For families that move around often and live outside of their home country, it is often the homeland culture which can feel foreign to the child.  Within the military culture itself, the term "military brat" is not considered to be derogatory but rather demonstrates affection and respect. (source:

Lisa Lynn has designed two wonderful cards using the Military Brat set.  The first one also includes papers from the Camo Digi Papers set.

Soldier Sam

Do you have a son, grandson or other male family member in service?  Why not say thank you to him or tell him how brave you think he is.  Lisa Lynn has done just that with this wonderful card featuring elements from the Soldier Sam set.

Donna, one of our Guest Designers this quarter, created this awesome card using Soldier Sam as well.

Woman are becoming more and more prominent in the military these days as well.  How about a card telling your daughter, granddaughter or another enlisted female, just how proud you are of their service or how much you miss them.  Audrey has created this beautiful card using elements from the Soldier Sara set.

Would you like to win ONE of the fantastic sets, as shown above?  To be eligible, simply leave a comment answering the following question...

Do you have any family members who are currently active in the military whether at home or abroad?
  I do not have any closely related family members who are active in the Canadian military.  However, my heart goes out to all the incredible men and woman who work to keep all of our countries safe.  Their sacrifice does NOT go unnoticed!

You have until 3:00 p.m. (PST) on Monday, May 16th, to get your response submitted. 

We will announce the winner of ONE of these sets on Tuesday, May 17th at 3:00 p.m.  Don't forget you'll have just two weeks to claim your prize, if you are the lucky winner!

Well, that is it for today!  Happy crafting until we meet again!

We have a nephew in the British Army. He has served abroad but now works in a training capacity in Bristol. Another nephew used to be a Naval nurse until a bad back forced him to leave the services.

I do not have anyone in the Military but my Dad was a POW. He was captured on Crete and was in Stallag IV. He wrote a letter to Albert Enistine while he was a POW which was answered by him.

My heart goes out to all those who are supporting our countries in what ever form it is. And to see the Invitus games at the moment is fantastic.

Awesome cards! Thanks for giving the opportunity to guest design. I don;t have any active duty relatives at the moment, but I have many veterans in the family. I used to make cards for Operation Write Home. These sets would have been perfect for any hero cards. Unfortunately they closed their doors. But I'm sure many veteran's hospitals would love to get cards with these sets!

Great sets. I have nephews in the service right now but a few years ago my son was in the U.S. Marines. Thank God he is home and safe now. My heart goes out to the family of military men and women because I was right with them a few years ago. Thank you all who serve. Sarah W

I have an "adopted" son who is in the National Guard. He isn't actually adopted but we took him under our wing and help him on this journey called life. Sometimes family has nothing to do with blood!

Thank you for honoring the military. All the best to other posters who have had family members serving in combat.
Currently, our youngest granddaughter is finishing her first year at the United States Air Force Academy. She very successfully survived the strenuous basic training as well as her first year of studies. She is hoping she will be accepted for additional training in the medical field. This involves a commitment of many years. We are so proud of her!

I do not have any close family members currently in the military, but would be proud to use these stamps to make cards to honor those who have served or are currently serving. I do have a close family friend who just made Major in the Air Force, can't remember where his next assignment is but know he is leaving again soon.
