Operation Write Home Memorial Day Bloghop

For HIMCR #150 go here.



All the cards you see today will be sent from soldiers, to their loved ones.  Awesome.  Here is my card:


This year the theme was to use Red, White and Blue with an OWH sketch.  I chose sketch 209:



 On my card I used DCWV and Basic Grey paper, punches, Fiskars sentiment, ink and the George and Basic Shapes cartridge.

Please visit all the others in this hop.  Thanks for stopping by and for all of our troops.

  14. I'm always so impressed when I see what people do with a sketch (the "busy" ones with many elements really intimidate me)... how you rocked it! The reds & blues you chose are so rich, and I really like that you gave the handsome sentiment so much room.
