OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop!



Welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Bloghop!  Be ready for a lot of inspiration along the way!  This bloghop is not for the faint hearted!  There are a lot of supporters out there and they would love you to leave them some love in the form of comments on their blogs!  This hop is open for the whole Memorial Day Weekend and ends on the 30th.  So please make an effort to visit everyone if you can.  Also make time to visit the OWH Blog to see how you can help simply by making cards!

If for some reason the road took a bad turn and you are lost along the hop, just click on the OWH logo above to start back at the begining of the hop, easy!

We were asked to keep it short and sweet, I can totally understand.  So without further ado, here is a red, white and blue card in the "I Miss You" theme for this hop:


Paper: Cardstock (PTI); Patterned Paper(PTI & old stash); Neenah Solar White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers;
Stamps: Joline (MFT); Sentiment (Technique Tuesday)
Other: Corner Chomper; Ribbon (Stash); Gem (Hero Arts); EK Succcess Label Punch; Dimensional dots

A little bit of paper piecing, some copic colouring and there you have it.  Isn't she pretty?

Now head on over to Laura's Blog and don't forget to leave her some love!  Wishing you all a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
