OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

So happy to see you on our Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop for Operation Write Home. You should have arrived here from Trisha's Blog. If not, please go to the OWH Stars and Stamps blog so you can start at the beginning.

We were asked to create a "missing you" card for this hop. No doubt a sentiment that is shared by all servicemen and women as well as their family and friends every minute of every day. I used some of my PaperTrey Ink stamps to create this one. I knew I wanted to use black and white plus one other color...which turned out to be bright yellow! Hmmmm, black and gold, could it be because I am such a big Pittsburgh Steelers fan??!!!! Haha, I'll never tell! Anyway, I used the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping.



Now please be sure and keep going on our hop, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.


Your next stop is ANGELA'S BLOG.
