OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop


I am proud to be apart of this wonderful blog hop.  Operation Write Home is an amazing organization that provides handmade cards to our service men and women.  I have several friends who are currently over seas serving our country and I feel this is the least I can do for the service men and women who are serving.

The card I created was from Sketch Challenge #25.  The paper I used was the digital Freebie offered below this blog post.  
I colored the flower paper with Tim Holtz Distress Inks:  Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade.  The flower was created from Hot Off the Press Template 7379.



Thank you for stopping, please visit all of the wonderful blogs during this Holiday Weekend!  Happy Memorial Day!
