OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop Today!


Happy Memorial Day Weekend! With thoughts of our military men and women strong in our hearts, I'm taking part in Operation Write Home's HUGE blog hop!

The guidelines include creating a red, white and blue card using one of OWH's card sketches. Here is my birthday card. I enjoy this quote from Club Scrap's Big Deal Collection Rubber Stamp Set and felt it would work for today's heartfelt blog hop.


I chose Operation Write Home Card Sketch #197 as the building block for this quick card.


After cutting the panels, I simply added a little rubber stamping and assembled.



Enjoy this great big Memorial Day Blog Hop, and thanks for stopping by!
