An Important Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend - so important for us to remember those who have served and  those still serving in the military.  Operation Write Home will have it's annual Memorial Weekend Bloghop beginning Saturday morning.  I will be one of the MANY who will be participating.  Sure hope you will join us for this fun, inspiring weekend.  Lots of eye candy.  Speaking of candy - I will be giving away some blog candy next week so make sure you are a follower so you will get the details and a chance to win.
Now on to a Patriotic card I made.  It is just one of the many I have made this week while preparing for the bloghop this coming weekend.

I used the sketch at Our Daily Bread Designs, making one card with a Navy base and one with Red.  These will go in the box to be sent to OWH to thank our heroes for their service.
I stitched the striped ribon.  The stars are cut out with a Verve die. The words are cut out with my Silhouette.  The flag BG stamp is ODBD, inked with Stampin Up Real Red and Night of Navy.
Here is the sketch:

Cuttin and Stampin - Memorial Day
