Happy Memorial Day Weekend, America!  Monday is the day we set aside to remember those who have served and who are currently serving in our armed forces and each year at this time Operation Write Home has a blog hop - a BIG one.  

You can start the hop any where and you have the entire weekend to visit all the blogs in the hop.  Some are offering giveaways so pay attention and have some fun hopping.  

I'm offering a prize to one lucky hopper.  You only have to leave a comment, and include your email so I can notify you if you win.  I will randomly pick a winner on Tuesday, May 27. Good luck!!! 

This is a brand spanking new Hero Arts set made specifically for Operation Write Home.  

The instructions for this hop are to create a card using the colors red, white and blue in one of these themes; Love you, Missing you, Thank you, Birthday and any hero cards.  OWH also provides some awesome sketches for inspiration. The instructions and sketches are found HERE.  

I created two cards for this hop I'll note which sketch I used for each one.

Sketch #114 (I flipped it a bit). 

 Sketch #154

Enjoy the hop and thanks so much for stopping by!  

5/27/2014  Woohooo....we have a winner!!! Congratulations, Lyn Kaufmann!  Your stamp set is on it's way.  Thank you all for commenting on my blog...I wish I had a gift for each of you.  What a fabulous blog hop once again.  God bless our service men and women and we thank you so much for all you do for us.

Hello blog friends!  

Over at The House That Stamps Built there's a new designer's choice challenge and you're going to have some fun with this one....guaranteed!  

Rock Star, Deonna has challenges us to create a "monochromatic card", which means sticking with one color, tone, hue of color.  Super fun and creative way to use up scraps, try new layouts, play with colors you may not like or have picked for a card before or just create with your favorite color....join Deonna and the RI Rock Stars. 

You can head on over to THE HOUSE and get all the instructions and details and see all the great cards from the RI Rock Stars.  

Here's the card I created for Deonna's challenge.  It was made with one of my favorite RI stamps #1401-B "Portland Head Light".   I used the Triple Stamping Technique to create this card.  

This technique is not easy, but it creates such a unique effect on a card.  Give it a try!  It's all about fun.  

Check out my Rock Star Teamies for some incredible inspiration for Deonna's challenge.
