Operation Write Home Blog Hop!
Welcome to my blog! This entire Memorial Day Weekend hop is listed HERE.
If you are are a past, present, or future soldier, then THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! This hop is all about giving thanks to the men and women who serve our country, so thanks for joining us!
I am a newbie at participating in OWH, and here are my cards that I made using OWH Sketch #75!
If you are new to my blog, (first of all, WELCOME!) you might not know that I am addicted to adding sparkle of all kinds to my projects...it is just the way I am. :) Unfortunately for my sparkly side, OWH cards may not contain any kind of glitter that will come off, for the safety of the men and women who use them. It is a major No-No! To be on the safe side, I was taking no chances here and made a no-glitter-whatsoever rule for myself. I had to improvise, so I used my Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge from Close to My Heart to make a star burst instead! You get all the hint of shine without the sparkle! ;) The sentiment tag is also cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge and the stamp is included with the collection. It is one of my favorites! This ticket shape reminds me of dog-tags, so I knew right away this was the one I would use.
I am so glad to be participating in this year's Memorial Day Hop! I am using it as the kick-off to my OWH support and super-excited to be scheduling an Operation Write Home Card Workshop soon! :)
God bless America and enjoy the hop! If you ever get lost, just head to the beginning of the hop right HERE!
If you want to see another card made with a different OWH sketch, then keep scrolling to my post from yesterday. I made it for the Color My Heart Color Dare!
