OWH Memorial Day Bloghop 2014

memdaybloghop_2014

Welcome to my stop on the Bloghop!   As a grateful American, I am here to remember
those in the military who have served and are serving now--
 to thank them and their families for their service and sacrifice which honors us all.

Today I share a few of the cards I've made for the troops--
 all using a red, white, and blue color scheme, made with care and gratitude,
 and each inspired by an OWH Sketch.
(There are over 200 great sketches --with measurements!-- to inspire you
at the Operation Write Home website.  Check them out here.)


First up, a Thank You card:

Pattern papers from Authentique Anchored 6x6 Bundle;
 sailboat from Papertrey Ink Masculine Motifs:
 sentiment from Dockside by Wplus9 Design Studio
Inspired by Sketch # 12


next, for a Birthday:


Pattern papers from Authentique Pride 6x6 Bundle;
 sentiment from Papertrey Ink Think Big Favorites #2
Inspired by Sketch #101


then comes Love:


Pattern papers from Teresa Collins Stationary Noted 6x6 pad;
You & Me from Stampin' Up Perfect Pennants
Inspired by Sketch #42


and, most requested, Miss You:


Pattern papers from Authentique Fresh 6x6 Bundle;
Prima Calligraphie marker 2.0
Inspired by Sketch #82



Thanks for visiting... enjoy the rest of the Bloghop goodness!

  3. Great use of patterned papers behind the sailboat; and of the banners on It's Your Day card. This I have to CASE -- a banner punch is on my wish list. I liked looking at four cards at this stop on the blog hop.

  4. I love them all. The darling sailboat with all the papers caught my attention right away, but because I'm trying to work on clean and simple these days, the You and Me card is my favorite. I usually put borders on banners, but leaving them the way you did was a perfect choice! I'm so going to CASE that!
