OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the OWH Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop. The theme this weekend is THANK YOU cards based on one of the OWH sketches - either for our heroes to send or ANY HERO CARDS with notes written inside to them! Of course I had to make one of each so let me share:

This is my thank you card using sketch #10. Okay, so I didn't use tags, but those cute carrots certainly make up for it!!! I used a Paper Smooches stamp set called Vegtastic. This one would also fit the Midweek Throwdown Challenge - times three (use 3 of something). 

Here is my Any Hero Card. I will write a note inside giving my heart-felt thanks to one of our heroes. This one is based off sketch #12. This is another Paper Smooches set, this one is called Circle of Honor. 

Thanks for hoping along this weekend. So many wonderful creations. Happy Memorial Day.

Darling cards! Love how you've used the carrot image multiple times (he's too cute!) - this is a great way to use a smaller image all by itself on a card).

The paper pieced PS carrots are so darn cute! I have that set on my wish list and your card may have just pushed me over the edge (of course the discount that PS is offering as part of the hop weekend helps too!:)
