OWH Memorial Day Weekend BlogHop

Hello blog hoppers,

If you are starting with me you just may want to go back to the beginning so you don't miss anything. Just click HERE.

If you are a cardmaker or wanna be cardmaker here is a quote from a family that has been touched by Operation Write Home...

I am writing today to thank you. I adore letters. To the point that my husband (now on his third deployment) and I have chosen them as our source of communication. We both love holding pieces of each other in our hands, and we have passed that love onto our kids. They choose not to Skpe with him, would pass on a phone call at times, but his letters -- oh how they squeal for them. My husband has lately been using cards from Operation Write Home. And he loves them; as do I. I can't thank you enough.

When I originally read this I just wanted to sit down and make a bunch of cards. If this inspires you as well please go to the Operation Write Home for all the details on helping out.

So with that being said I am challenging myself to make a card for each comment left on my blog for this hop.

Here is my card. I think M.S. and her family would love receiving this patriotic miss you card.

Here is a close up of the flower. I curve it a bit with my pen and added foam tape to pop it off the card.

Stamps: Flower CTMH, Miss You The Paper Company Studio
Copic markers, CTMH stamp pads
Ribbon: Offray

To continue on with the hop please click here to check out the great card Corinna has for us.
Thank you for stopping by and have a safe and fun weekend. Thank you dad and all the other vets that have serviced us in the past.
Thank you all our service men and women around the world. You guys rock!

OWH S&S Sketch #18

Hello Friends,

Can you believe that Memorial Day is just around the corner. Some say that is the beginning of the summer season. Well it sure doesn't feel like summer in my part of the woods. This has been the strangest spring.
It was cold and rainy last weekend so I decided it was the perfect day to make a card. This card is part of a challenge over at the OWH Stars and Stamps blog. You can find the sketch by clicking here.
Why not join the best group of ladies on the planet and make cards for our deployed men and women in the armed forces. It is enough to brighten even the rainiest of days.
So enjoy my card. If you decide to try the sketch leave me a link in the comments, I'd love to see it.

Don't forget this weekend is the big OWH Blog Hop. You will get a lot of inspiration, maybe win some blog candy and see some new techniques. It starts May 29th at 7 am PST.

Happy stamping,
