Som mor til en soldat, der har været i Afghanistan, ved jeg hvor meget det betyder at få en håndskrevet hilsen, fra en udsendt. Som jeg før har fortalt, er det ubeskriveligt at få et brev, fra en man savner SÅ meget, at det gør ondt. Jeg har ikke tal på hvor mange gange vi har læst de kort der kom fra Mikkel, og det betød noget helt specielt at vi vidste at han havde haft det i hænderne. (det var stadig fyldt med støv og sand ;-)Derfor er jeg også beget beæret over at få lov til at være med i en Bloghop, som er arrangeret af vores egen Charlie fra OSH og af Sandy fra operation write home i USA. Nyd Bloghoppen og få en masse skøn inspiration.
As the mother of a soldier who has been in Afghanistan, I know how much it means to get a handwritten letter from a deployed soldier. As I've mentioned before, it's indescribable to get a letter from someone you miss SO much that it hurts. I've lost count of how many times we've read the letters that came from Mikkel, and it meant something special that we knew he had it in his hands. (In fact it was still filled with dust and sand ;-))
I am therefore truly honored to be allowed to participate in a Bloghop arranged by our own Charlie from OSH and Sandy from the Operation Write Home in America. Enjoy the Bloghop and I hope you'll see a lot of wonderful inspiration.
På mit bidrag til Bloghoppen, har jeg valgt at sætte den lille havfrue, da hun, for mig, er noget af det mest "danske" og kendt over hele verden. God fornøjelse...
In my contribution to this Bloghop, I have chosen to put the little mermaid, as she, for me, is very Danish and known worldwide. Enjoy ...

Thank you for sharing in this bloghop!
interesting sketch to work withSvarSlet

Mette, dit kort er bare så ubeskriveligt fedt, det kan vist ikke blive mere dansk!SvarSlet
Forsat god søndag :-)
igen et super flot kort. Det kan da ikke blive mere dansk. :-)SvarSlet
even I knew the mermaid - thanks for everything you do to support your troops - glad you were able to join our hopSvarSlet
Super skønt kortSvarSlet
What a pretty card - and I learned something about Denmark, too! I didn't know that mermaids were Danish. :-)SvarSlet
Love your card. The colors are so soothing and the image really adds to the message that the person sending the card is missing Home. Thank you for sharing and supporting your troops.SvarSlet
I love cards that are simple to do in mass quantity but still look lovely. The squares would be so easy to cut/punch, and offers great opportunity to mix and match papers. Very nice!SvarSlet
Beautiful card! I love your sketch, too. Love the Danish heroes!!SvarSlet
Very nice card...I can never line up squares like that :DSvarSlet
I really like your blog banner.
That's a great sketch and you did a wonderful job conveying the "wishing" and "missing" someone with that mermaid. We like mermaids too! Thanks for sharing!SvarSlet
Mette, your card is beautiful, and the mermaid always reminds me of Denmark. Many thanks to your son for his service to his country. Thanks to the whole family! (We're a military family too.) Hope you get lots of cards from him!SvarSlet
Dit kort er smukt og rigtig Dansk.SvarSlet
Åhh et fint kort.. og skiftes motivet i midten, kan man nemt lave et kort til enhver lejlighed.SvarSlet
Mange hilsner fra Tina M.
Cute Sketch - thank you.SvarSlet
I love the little string on each card... it's such a simple touch that really makes it special!SvarSlet
Ja - den lille havfrue kan da ikke blive mere dansk. Smukt kort!SvarSlet
Such a beautiful card and the sentiments you've shared about knowing the card you are holding was also held by your son really touch the heart. Even in this day of amazing technology it is nice to know that some things we might label 'old-fashined' hold meaning. Thank you for joining in today's hop!SvarSlet
From one military mom to another, thank you! Thank you for the card inspiration and thank your son for his service.SvarSlet
What beautiful cards. Who ever gets these are going to love them. Thank you so much for sharing.SvarSlet
What a beautiful card! Thank you for sharing your story! ♥SvarSlet

Fantastisk smukt kort du har lavet.SvarSlet
Altså, Mette. Hvor smukt er det lige ? WAUUUU - og såååå dansk.SvarSlet
Du er sandelig en værdig repræsentant for dette sjove/spændende projekt. Og du ved jo om nogen, at det er et stort og vigtigt arbejde.
Smukt kort med vores Lille Havfrue - mere dansk bli'r det jo næsten ikke :)SvarSlet
What a great card!! I love all the little squares..so many possibilities!! Thanks for being apart of the Hop!!SvarSlet
Lækkert kort med den lille havfrue.SvarSlet
Rigtig sødt kort med den lille havfrue..godt fundet på ;-)SvarSlet
Such a great card! Thanks for sharing. I love the Danish mermaid tie in. I also have a military son. My Trevor is in the US Navy and will be home soon after 4 years. He spent 8 months in Afghanistan. I know that sounds funny, the US Navy in Afghanistan, but it's true. He is in the Seabees (Construction Battalion) and they were over there building on the Marine Base in the middle of the country. It made my day when I got a letter from him!SvarSlet
It's so much fun sharing with our Danish sisters!
The Little Mermaid will definitely remind them of home. I still have my Little Mermaid from Copenhagen. It reminds me of the great visit to your beautiful country.SvarSlet
Superflot kort, du har lavet, Mette! God ide med havfruen og lækkert design!SvarSlet
Hej og JA det er et fint kort - meget DANSK og dejligt - og sørme om ikke du lige rystede en lille serie ud af ærmet nu du var igang. GLÆDER mig til vi ses her i HQ om 2 uger!SvarSlet
This hop is so fun! I can't wait to visit every single one! Your card is darling. I love the pink!SvarSlet

Super flot kort du har lavet, den lille havfrue - mere DANSK kan det da ikke bliveSvarSlet
Hej Mette,Super patriotic card and I love the skitse I am going to have to borrow that!. I find your faithful contributions to the FIF`s inspirational..you deserve a medal.Keep up the good work and happy hopping. MVH VikkiSvarSlet
I have loved the story of the little mermaid since I was a small child. Long before the Disney movie. Think you for such a beautiful card that represents a wonderful landmark in your country.SvarSlet
Love the patchwork and mermaid. I am enjoying the little glimpses of Danish life...what's the same and what's different. As a military wife and mom, I know very well how cherished a card is from a deployed loved one. Thanks for being part of the hop.SvarSlet
I can see you like to make multiples of a card design, just as I like to. Last week there was some discussion on OWH-TV about how many multiples folks are willing to do. Some folks prefer to use a different design every time, but that is just too slow for me! (It takes me a long time to design one card!!) Thanks for sharing.SvarSlet

Hello from the U.S.! I really like tiled/patchwork cards. I well remember the Little Mermaid when I was in Denmark many years ago. My sister and I sat nearby and just looked that her. It was so peaceful. Thank you for taking part in this international blog hop. It's always fun to see new styles and expand my collection of sketches and inspiration.
Gorgeous card! Thank you so much for sharing with us!SvarSlet

Som altid et smukt kort fra dig. Det må være noget helt særligt at få lov at være med i et bloghop som dette, når man selv har børn i krig. Har selv en bekendt der er i Afghanistan, godt nok er han pt på leave i Danmark, men man tænker altid lidt ekstra på dem ;-)SvarSlet
