OWH Memorial Day BlogHop!


Welcome to my spot on this fantastic hop!
You may want to go back to http://operationwritehome.org/starsandstamps so you do not miss any of the cards! Cardmakers will be showcasing "Thank You" cards- either for our troops to send home or to send to the hero thanking them for their service! Here is the twist-we are using a sketch from OWH!
Here is the sketch I used (because I love 1/2 circles!):




Cricut Cartridge Suburbia: fan
CTMH ribbon
Circle cut with Martha Stewart circle cutter
Computer generated sentiment
Echo Park -This and That by Lori Whitlock 6x6 paper pad
stars and brad-stash
Signo white pen
Copic marker along the edges of the papers

I hope you enjoy the bloghop- and please support our troops and OWH! And would you like to have a chance at winning some blog candy? Then check out my post from Friday 5.24.13!
Now- keep hopping and then go make some cards and craft on!
Thanks for stopping by,
Diane
