OWH Sketch #242

It's OWH Sketch time... well actually, it was last week, but I wanted to do this one because it looked like fun.

Here are the details of the sketch

and my card

I decided to use some colors that I'd consider more masculine for this card.  I used a very rarely used Stampin up set (Posey Punch).  The paper is a 12x12 DCWV Linen Closet Stack

I wanted to share a picture of my friend/co-worker that took her dad to DC last weekend with the Indy (Indianapolis) Honor Flight. My husband and I went to greet these wonderful men back from a long day in DC.  68 vets went to DC with their "guardians" and were greeted (based on what I heard) with the respect they so much deserved.  Every place they went they were honored by other military people and citizens. 

I don't think there was a dry eye in the place watching these men come back into the high school gym.

 I'm sure they were overwhelmed as I was.  I was thinking so much of my dad at this event, thinking of how much I miss him, and how much he would have enjoyed a trip like this to DC the sites.

I can only say that if any of you that read this (or know of someone) that has a WWII vet in the family to make sure they get to DC.  There are many chapters of the Honor Flight across the country read more about it here .  Also take the time to greet one of these flights, it is an experience you won't soon forget.

Donate too...... so these Vets have the opportunity to go..... AND check this out!!!  I made 70 cards and was able to donate those so each vet had a handmade card with a note of thanks for my friends/family and coworkers!!  See if one of the chapters near you (or mail them) something like this. 

Anyway.. I have gone on long enough...

Snow is coming, just a dusting but winter is here in central Indiana...

Till next time!

A couple of things about this card...

The card that I created was created for a couple of reasons, but primarily to thank the folks at Hambo Stamps.  Their challenge was one of the first ones that I regularly participated in and found out about them via OWH. 

This card is using one of their digital images and I used Sketch #241 (details are here)  from OWH and this has hearts in the baskets, so it qualifies for the ODB challenge for the month of November.

Here is my card

I have been so busy making cards for the Indy Honor Flight (70 of them) and getting them signed by co-workers and friends.

My husband and I had new flooring and new windows put in so we are still trying to get things back to normal... quite the task.

Hope everyone is doing well and had a great Halloween, I need to start working on my own cards for Thanksgiving!! 

Have a great week!
