Memorial Day Blog Hop (and Candy)


http://operationwritehome.org/starsandstamps

Yes, it is time for the BIG Memorial Day Blog Hop.
Our assignment was to create a Thank you Card using one of the sketches at OWH 
I made two cards - one for a woman and one for a guy.

This was with sketch #123. Papers are My Mind's Eye.  Sentiment is Verve.  Frame is GKD.

Sketch #59 turned on its side.  Image, sentiments, pattern paper strip are Doodle Pantry .  The three die cut stars are Verve die cut.

Each Memorial Day Bloghop I offer some blog candy.  In order to qualify, please comment on this post but also on yesterday's post.  That is where you can  see a picture of the candy. And if you would, please mention that you would like to be included in the drawing.  You have until midnight (PDT) Tuesday, May 28 to comment on both posts.  I will choose a winner Wednesday morning.

Thanks for looking.  Hope you enjoyed what you saw.  THANKS FOR SUPPORTING OWH

Challenges:
Sentimental Sunday - CAS
A Blog Named Hero - CAS
Whoopsie Daisy - May flowers
