OWH Memorial Day Sketch Bloghop!

Start the Blog Hop HERE.


BLOG CANDY ALERT! (See below)
Hello blog-hoppers! Welcome!  I am semi-new to the blogiverse.
I found out about Operation Write Home in February and started making cards for them.
My sketch for this blog hop is OWH Sketch #60

The inchie stamps are from Inkadinkadoo, the sentiment is from Stampin'Up!  Inks used are Ranger Maganese Blue  and black Archival ink, Tim Holtz Distressed ink Peacock Feathers, Shaded Lilac, Squeezed Lemonade and Vintage Photo.  The background paper is Tim Holtz Kraft Resist Paper, the forground paper is a Ranger Kraft I distressed wit the inks.  Card stock is Creative Memories, ribbon is from my stash.

BLOG CANDY ALERT -- I will award some Creative Memories goodies to two people who:
1) follow my blog and
2) post a comment on this blog.
I will use Random.org to choose.
You must be a follower of my blog in order to win.  (The follow button is on the right side of the blog!)
I look forward to reading all your comments and to blog-hopping to the rest of the OWH Memorial Day Sketch blogs!

Happy Crafting and blog-hopping!
Donna

  13. Most importantly, thank you for your service!!! What a pretty, pretty card! I have to admit that I tried that sketch and finally threw up my hands in defeat (for a while) because I couldn't figure out what to do with all those squares. Inchies? Who knew? Well, obviously you did, but I sure didn't. I see more shopping in my Memorial Day weekend!

    Thanks for sharing such a great card and for the inspiration!
