OWH Memorial Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,


Operation Write Home Blog Hop



Here is the card I made for the OWH Memorial Day blog hop. I used the Bonus Sketch (immediately following Sketch #63). I used the Hero Arts floral stamp that comes with the Sizzix shape. Love these new stamps that are put out by Hero Arts and Sizzix. This card is plain and simple, but I just love the sentiment. Who wouldn't love to open a card with that sentiment on it? It's from the One in a Million stamp set by Gina K Designs. It was free, but you had to buy three stamps to get it free--so not really free!!!

  3. Very nice card Pat! The cut out edge is wonderful and adds so much interest. I have only tried it once or twice but I think I didn't make as good a image choice as you did here. I definitely need to try it again. The sentiment is great too, perfect for OWH cards. Thanks for joining in the Memorial Day hop and for supporting OWH!
