Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop for Operation Write Home

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  Yesterday I posted a card using OWH Sketch #71 and I promised I would use the same sketch for this blog hop with a Thank You theme.



Products used are from Close To My Heart: Fanfare paper (retired), Pacifica CS, Sunny Yellow (retired) stripe, Thanks stamp, Love Life small star stamp, Cranberry Ink, Pacifica Ink.

Remembering my family members in the military: Dad--Navy, Uncle Pete--Marines, Uncle Don--Navy, Son Rick--Navy, Daughter-in-law Siobhan--Marines.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please check my post on 5/24/13 to see the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #44 card using the same sketch and for details about my blog candy giveaway! Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
