Operation Write Home Blog Hop... Happy Memorial Weekend!!!

To start today's post, I would love to extend a HUGE thank you to ALL of those serving our country right now. I extend my thoughts, prayers and thanks to them, and to the families that are waiting at home for them right now. We are blessed to have you out there serving for our freedoms. I am truly blessed to have a talent for art, and very thankful I had the means to share my cards with those overseas.
The majority of the paper used for my card is Basic Grey and the image KAH-Wink-E-Dink Missing You image. I also used my Swiss Dots embossing folder to give the look of stars. The striped paper is DCWV.

Operation Write home is a WONDERFUL group with a ton of resources for inspiration. You can go there EVERY day and find something new to learn, to try, or a reminder of a possibly forgotten technique. Here is their tutorial link. One of my favorite tutorials, which I tried and loved is the shirt card, below, found on their blog! SO FUN!



I would like to thank the troops and thank you for coming by. Here is one of my digital images that I would LOVE to share with you.
So hop on off to the next stop.

EDIT... I have taken down the tank image and put it back in the store. If you are a late OWH blog hopper, and missed it, please email me and I will share it with you!
Thank you!


I hope you are having a GREAT time. Happy Memorial Weekend. What better way to celebrate than remembering our troops? Hoo-Rah!



If I was your first stop and you want to go to the beginning of the whole hop you can start at Operation Write Home's blog.

I'm really late on the blog hop. So much stuff to see!!
My son is a Marine and he was really wanting to drive a tank. So I thought your tank image would be perfect for a card for him and other guys.
