OWH Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop


Hello & Welcome to the OWH Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop!

So glad you are here!

(If you get a chance after reading my blog hop post, please scroll down to my post from yesterday for a tribute to a fallen soldier.)

If you came here from Kristin at Creative Syzygy then you are on the right track.

If not and you have stopped by here for a visit, or have gotten lost on the hop...please start at the beginning of the hop and start from there.

Just click on the picture above and it will take you back to the first stop on the hop which is Operation Write Home.

Here is the card I made for this hop:


I used the Cricut Cartridge Cindy Loo to cut out the heart and sentiment.

Below is a picture of the other supplies & tools that were used to make this card:


I am offering up some blog candy for this hop!


A 12x12 Set of Kitchen Stickers from Dazzles & a Set of Kitchen Time Heartwarming Vintage Cuts 

 All you have to do to be eligible to win is be a follower and leave me a comment, with a way to get a hold of you if you are the winner.

(I'm sorry but I have to limit the giveaway to U.S. residents only, due to high shipping costs for overseas)

I will be picking the winner on Tuesday using random.org

Now onto the next blog on this hop:


Thanks for joining me on my very first blog hop!

Be sure to visit everyone on the hop, there are some beautiful cards from some very talented crafters that you won't want to miss!

First of all thank you for sharing the Fallen Soilder post. It pulled at my heart, especially since I have had so many family members in active service over the years. My oldest grandson has been serving about one of our nuclear aircraft carries. So very proud of him. Now the card - it is very creative and totally different, it made me laugh.
