It's Here - The OWH Memorial Weekend Blog Hop


 
The Master list is HERE    




It is so exciting to be part of the BLOG HOP for Operation Write Home.  This is my first time to participate as a blogger so I hope I do everything right.
 I love OWH and hope that each of you will consider making cards to send to our wonderful troops and also consider supporting  with a monetary donation. 

I chose sketch #112.

 I keep my cards pretty simple and easy but as you can see, you can make some nice cards quite quickly with a sketch like this.  Here are two cards for you with that sketch. For this first card I used the cute digital by Digital Delights.  The sentiment is a freebie I picked up at  OWH by Paula. 

This next card uses DP as the BG and a digital sentiment by Clear Dollar Stamps.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have some candy to give away to one of you.
Here is a photo of that candy:


 All you have to do is COMMENT and tell me you would like to be in the drawing.   I would love for you to become a follower but it is not a requirement. I am trying to resist the temptation of the numbers game.  If you like my work and you think I could give you some ideas, I would LOVE to have you as a follower.   The random drawing will be on May 29 and I will announce the winner on May 30. ( So you will have to come back to my blog at least one more time - heehee).



 Something to think about:  To the world you are just one person but to one person you are the world.

Enjoy the blog hop and make sure you make some cards ASAP !

Now, back to the Hop List

  23. I love that you did such different looks from the same sketch! They're both very special in their own way (how cool is that M&M paper?) and show how much you can do with a CAS card! Super job and I'm now following you for more simple inspirations. :)

  24. Great cards using one of my favorite sketches! I really like how you used an image on the vertical panel on the first card - I'll be casing that idea I think! The photo paper is a great idea too, hmmmm, I have a bit of that myself. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the inspiration!
