OWH S&S Blog Tour

Hello and welcome to the OWH S&S blog tour.

If you are just visiting my blog and have not been to the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps blog you will want to click here when you are done checking out my card today.

We were challenged to make a red, white and blue happy birthday card for the tour. How appropriate for the 4th of July and our nations birthday. I did a little stitching and stamping on this card. It was quick and easy but I think the look is right on for our theme.




Here is a close up of the stitching on my card.



Are you a cardmaker?

Hi Marianne, you stopped by my blog and left a great comment (StampTV CSSDT Alumni) and I just wanted to pay you a visit and say "thanks so much". You're blog and your cards are fantastic! You're card for OWH with the stitching and stars is FANTASTIC.

BTW, those CB border folders are really great embellishments or make perfectly simple cards all by themselves.
