OWH Memorial Day Sketch Blog Hop

Happy Memorial Day! I do hope you all are having a safe holiday weekend and keeping those who are serving, or have served, in your thoughts as they continue to fight for our freedom we so enjoy! Furthermore, I hope you will take a moment to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in protecting our country with honor.
Today I am sharing with you two cards I made using Hambo Stamps digi images from Hop Art Designs. Hambo Stamps donates a portion of its proceeds from Hop Art Designs to this fabulous organization we are all hopping for- Operation Write Home (OWH). You will want to be sure that you start at the beginning by clicking the link so will be able to move through quickly and smoothly.

Operation Write Home

Here are my two cards:

This card was made using OWH's sketch #42 and the image called Trena with Heart.

American Crafts dp was used. I colored in the image with my Copics and added the sentiment to the bottom.

This card was made using OWH's sketch #65 and the image called Daisey's Due.

Basic Grey's collection of What's up for the dp was used as well of some gorgeous colored crochet ribbon and card stock from Lilly Belles Paperie. The image was colored in using Copics.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. Thank you to OWH and everyone for your continued support to our troops!

  5. Two very nice cards! I like your interpretation of sketch #42. The longer image shape really changes it up in a fresh way. Thanks for joining in the Memorial Day hop and for supporting OWH. I am so proud of how many military families are part of the OWH family. Thanks to your whole family for your service and sacrifice.
