Featured Cardmaker: Lina W, Hampton VA

Lina's sweet cards prove that the old principle is true — simplicity is beautiful! (And Lina, from all of us - thank you to your family for your service to our nation!

How long have you been making cards for our heroes?
I started stamping for Cards for Heroes maybe before Christmas of 2008 or the new year of 2009. I can't really remember. As soon as I found out I wanted to do it.

What's your favorite kind of card to make?
Quick ones! I would try to copy other stuff I would see and it would take too long or I was not happy with it. Now I just want to make a card that will not take me 2 hours and I can just be happy and move on to the next one.

Are there colors, style, or products that draw you?
I LOVE the new clear stamps. They are my favorite. Less mistakes and less waste. I love florals and stamps that have meaningful quotations.

What motivates you to make cards for heroes?
I am a military spouse and know what it feels like to be apart from your loved ones. I feel a connection with the spouses and the the heroes that are overseas!
