Memorial Day Blog Hop for Operation Write Home!

A wonderful tradition for this patriotic holiday!!  

So the from the OWH website were as follows:

Bloghop theme: Make a red, white, and blue card in one of the themes below, and we hope you’ll use one of our OWH sketches. We’ll be offering a little prize for a randomly selected card in each category:
  • Love cards
  • Missing you cards
  • Thank you cards
  • Birthday cards
  • AnyHero cards with notes inside written TO them!

I wanted to do a card for each category, so started with the easiest thing to do for the red/white/blue theme, the AnyHero card.

This little gal is "Saluting Marci" from La La Land Crafts.   You can find their catalog of all their stamps here

I used one of the Operation Write Home sketches (#79) and embellished a little by flipping it and using a strip of striped paper instead of the individual strips.

Card #2 is from OWH Sketch #165

and my "Thinking of You Card"

(and of course, I realize it was suppose to be missing you, not thinking of you!  ARGH!!)

My birthday card submission has no sketch, and unfortunately is a little messy, when it comes to my inky fingers....... and the clock was ticking, so I went with it and will redo at a later date.

For my "love" card, I decided to crazy with hearts and use my "under-used" heart embossing folder.

The details for Sketch 109

and my card

after I made the card, I thought I should have used my star embossing folder, but it is suppose to be a love card, right???

And my final card is done with this OWH Sketch

And my card

Hope everyone is enjoying the hop and have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.
