Operation Write Home Memorial Day Sketch Blog Hop



Happy Memorial Day USA!!!

Welcome to Operation Write Home Sketch Blog Hop!  I'm so happy you stopped by and I'm so excited to be joining the hop this year.  I can't wait to see all the fabulous inspiration. 

Remembering  All Who Serve

Thank you to all who are serving our country, all who served and all the families of these exceptional men and women.  And let's never forget those who paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we cherish.


I chose OWH Sketch Number 101 for my card. 




papers are all from Authentique "Glory" collection 6x6 pad.  Spellbinder dies. Stars CB EF that I sanded.  Stars are little stickies from Michaels. 

Enjoy the hop and thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your comments, you make my day!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Your card is so sweet. Love all the papers. (Authentique! I saw some on another blog - I am going to have to check them out!) Well, back on topic, lol, the papers give a lovely worn, vintage look and really make the sketch come alive.

KellyRae said...

Lovely card. The banners look great (that Glory paper pad is fabulous). TFS and supporting OWH.

Lucy said...

I adore banner cards and the Authentique papers were perfect for it. That's a lot of stars to have stick on. I'm guessing you won't be mass producing this one, right? I'm sure Authentique has a suitable substitute paper. ;-) Thanks for participating in the blog hop and for your continuing support of our troops.
