You can be the encouragement someone needs!

Do you have someone that the Lord has put on you heart and may need an encouraging word. I would like to help you send that encouragement to them.

This card I made could be used to tell someone you love, how thankful you are for them or help them a have a bright spot in their day. It is blank inside for you to write the words the Lord puts on your heart.

Leave a comment at the bottom of this post and I’ll pick a winner on Monday. Read this and you will know how PASS IT ON started and how we feel the cards can be used.
Be sure to also look at Di’s blog and Janet’s blog who help with the PASS IT ON project. Email me here if you want to join our little group to make cards and help pass on a blessing to others.

Take a look on the side bar and remember the prayer request we have had come in. I would like to add those requests you have, just email me here.

It is still not too late to leave a comment on this post and win one of the prizes from the blog hop last weekend. I'll be picking the winner on Monday for those prizes too. We had such a great turn out for the OWH blog hop. I have already mailed my Anyhero cards and received an email from Sandy at OWH . She said they are on their way to one of the hundreds of our heroes serving around the world.

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to pass on the love of Jesus.

Thanks a million, Kathy
I have put a link on the side of my blog to the Real Women Scrapbook Blogabration.

There are gifts and prizes Tasra will be giving away. You can see the list here and she will be updating it very often.

List of prizes

Tasra has been a great supporter. Read what she had to say here on her blog about PASS IT ON. And I have been a fan of her blog from it's start. If you have not read her book you need to take time to do so. Maybe add it to your Christmas list or books to get at the library list. It makes you think not only about crafting in a different light but also many other areas of you life.
Thanks Tasra you are an inspiration to us all.


This is the sweet comment Cindi left on my last post. Cindi you won the card and I will get it in the mail to you as soon as you send me your mailing address.
Thank you for visiting the blog.

"Your card is so soft and lovely! I have a friend who has been recently diagnosed with breast
cancer. She is very much on my heart and soul today. God bless.....Thanks, Cindi"

Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Welcome to everyone that is here from the Operation Write Home (OWH) Blog Hop.
If you want to start at the beginning go here.
This is my first blog hop and I am more than excited.
I found OWH after my son made me a military mom. After you become a military mom some things that were small on your list become big on you list. When our son was deployed to Iraq, mail became a big thing on my list. I thought if I can get some of “home” to my son in the mail it would somehow make everything better. So I made a lot of visits to our post office.

If you talk to the many men or women serving in our armed forces they will tell you the connection to home is one of the most important things to them while they are away. That is what the OWH group is all about, making a big difference in a small way. CARDS. We not only send card to the soldiers to thank them and tell them we love them and are praying for them but the main job of this group is to make handmade cards for the soldiers to send back home to the ones they love. Read all about OWH here.

I hope by now you have a tug at you heart to want to help.
If you are a card maker, start making cards here is the info you need.
If you don’t craft you can still help just look here.
But more importantly one thing we can all do daily, PRAY for our HEROES and their family back home.
The cards I have posted here I made to send to thank our heroes for all they do.
And because you have been so kind to get this far in the blog hop I have prizes for you to help you get started making cards.
K & Company 6X6 paper padInkadinkado Clear StampStamplogy Black Stamp PadLeave a comment and I’ll be drawing the winners on Monday. November 23.
My blog PASS IT ON is a blog I have just to give away my cards for others to be an encouragement. You can read all about it here. And please come back often there is ALWAYS something YOU can win here on PASS IT ON.

Your next stop on the hop is
You will be so impressed with the Joscie beautiful work and her beautiful family. Check out her photography, it is amazing. Joscie is a military wife so she too knows first hand how important the connection back home can be. Thank you Joscie for the sacrifice you and your family make for our freedom.

And I have saved the best for last, this is our hero, the one I do this for, my son. He has just deployed again last weekend. Please remember him and his flight.

Prayer Requests & Praise Reports added to blog

I have had people ask for us here on the PASS IT ON blog to pray for them or they have friends or family they would like to have prayed for. So I am adding a prayer request list on my blog. I will add a sidebar on the right. If you have special prayer request please email me and I will add the names and the information to this sidebar. I am a firm believer in prayer. The Lord hears our words and requests.

But I will also be adding a praise report list to the blog, also on the right sidebar. Because as much as I know God wants to hear our prayer request and will hear them. He also loves it when we tell him THANK YOU and praise Him no matter the answer of the prayer. And there will be one of 3 answers to our prayers from the heart... Yes, No or WAIT.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Phillipians 4:6

I am receiving blessings daily from you the readers. Thank you for your love and support for PASS IT ON.


Just a Little Something...

I have a new card to offer you. I have a new set of stamps that I am really enjoying because you use buttons with it. And I love old buttons.
This card has Numbers 6:24-25 inside but still has room for you to write your own message.

You can look here to see my purpose of PASS IT ON. But a reminder, when leaving a comment to win this card come back to this post and leave a comments here.
Your comments are such a blessing to me. I hope the cards have been a blessing to someone. Thank you!! Also be sure to look at the other two PASS IT ON blogs listed on the right sidebar.

Good night, Kathy

Winner of this card is Angelwolfstorm

Angelwolfstorm is the winner of the card I posted on Saturday. Email me your address and I get it in the mail to you. Thank you all for your comments and support of PASS IT ON. I will have a new card soon.
Blessings to you and your family, Kathy

Saturday, October 31, 2009

I have a new card for some lucky winner. I had Thanksgiving on my mind when I made it. But I think it can be used anytime because we need to be telling our loved ones how very thankful we are that the good Lord gave them to us to love.

Make it a point to tell someone you are thankful for them before the weekend is over.

Have a good night, Kathy

Thank you all for the kind words and support from everyone. Your support for this new adventure has been wonderful.

Jackie you are the winner of the card posted Monday. You should receive it in your mail very soon.

I have not heard from the last winner lv2scpbk and do not know of another way to get in touch with her. If anyone knows her please ask her to send me her address. If I don't hear from her by the end of the week I'll pick another winner for that card.

I have TWO people that have joined me in this ministry. I have listed their blogs on the top right sidebar of the blog. Check out their sites and you may win a card from them too. Welcome Di and Janet to PASS IT ON!

We invite anyone to join in the adventure. The blessings you receive from giving back is a very special feeling. But we can't do this alone we need YOU. We have to get the word out to as many people as we can. We need people to open their hearts so the Lord can speak to you about who needs some words of support at just the right time. As only He can do. Let the Lord use you! You will never know how a small thing like a card with a personal message from you can make a HUGE difference in some one's day.

Also don't forget if you add the PASS IT ON button (located on the right sidebar) and/or have a post on your blog about PASS IT ON I'll send you a free card. Send me a note with the link so I will know to send you a card.

I'll post a new card later today. Until then let's get to work getting the word out! I am always open for suggestions on what I can do to improve the blog and how to spread the word!

As I close what good is a blog post with out pictures... here is my picture of the day...
My beautiful family, the loves of my life.

Have a blessed day, Kathy

Win this and Pass it on!

I hope your weekend was a much fun as mine was. We got to spend the whole weekend with our grandchildren. They were so sweet, we had a wonderful time and did not want it to end. But they had to go back to school today so we had to return them to their mom and dad.

I promised a new card today and here it is. Read "Working Together" to find out how you can win and brighten some one's day. The verse in the card is

Romans 8:28... "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose"

I also told you I had some great news about the blog. I received an email from Di. She found the blog and knew at once the Lord had answered her prayers. This is her story. I was so excited to have her join me in this ministry I almost did a little dance! Although we have never met and live hundreds of miles apart we already have a bond. We are brainstorming on ways to get the word out about the ministry. If anyone has suggestions or ideas please let us know. Also we would like to invite YOU to join our group if you feel the Lord calling you. Email me here and I'll help you get set up. Thanks again for your support and prayers for the PASS IT ON ministry.

Have a blessed day, Kathy

Working Together

I have been praying for the Lord to use me in a new way. I feel that He has led me to this idea in hopes that lives will be touched by a very small thing in a very big way.

There are many hurting people out in our world who need to know someone cares. They need to know the love Jesus has for us and the love we have for Jesus.

I am asking you to go on this mission with me.

I’ll be making cards and posting them on this blog. You leave a comment. After the card has been up for a few days I’ll pick a random winner from the people that have left comments.

The card will be mailed to the random winner picked. And this is when you go to work.

Think and pray about who needs to receive this card with a special handwritten message from you. Maybe it will be a family member in the hospital, or a friend that has lost a job, someone who just found out they have cancer, a member of our troops serving around the world, a shut in. The list could go on and on and on.

This card will be handmade with love and free to you. Your job will be to PASS IT ON!

Watch for the first card very soon.
