OWH World Card Making Day 2013 + giveaway

Welcome to OWH's 2013 WCMD bloghop! There's so much inspiration to enjoy today so be sure to check out all the blogs at OWH 
 
Our theme is Thank You cards based on an OWH sketch and I chose sketch #53:
My thanks card will be sent as a holiday AnyHero card.  Although our deadline for holiday cards is fast approaching, the deadline for AnyHero holiday cards is December 1.
I cut the word "thanks" three times, stacked each letter, then embossed it with white embossing powder.  The stamped sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink and the paper is Basic Grey's Nordic Holiday. If you'd like the "thanks" cut file, click on "My SVGs" at the top of my blog.
 
If there's a bloghop, there has to be candy.! I'm giving away these stamps to two commenters:
I'll draw the winners on Sunday night, October 6th and email you.  Thanks for stopping by and keep on hoppin'!
