OWH Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop





HELLO AND WELCOME . . . 
to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop. I hope everyone is enjoying all the wonderful work crafted by the many talented folks who support OWH. And maybe you have even found some inspiration for your next project. If you came here from Darlene, of Expressions by da, then you are on the right track. If you didn't, then please hop on over to the first stop on this blog hop by clicking here, so that you can enjoy all the wonderful work along the way. 



I haven't done a lot in my craft room since the last OWH Blog Hop, but I do love a good Blog Hop and the OWH Blog Hop's are ALWAYS good, so of course I had to participate.


For today's blog hop I have created a "Missing You" card using the Tilda Blowing Hearts stamp from the Valentine Collection by Magnolia. She is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. The two purple solid cardstocks are Bazzill and the green design paper is from the Best of Brenda Walton by K & Company. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the purple at the top of the card. The white ribbon is some that I bought in bulk at a local fabric shop some twenty years ago. The card base is textured white by AC Cardstock. And I wish I could give credit for the sentiment stamp, but it is a tiny red rubber stamp with no identification. 






BLOG CANDY
I hope you enjoyed my contribution to the Operation Write Home Memorial day Weekend Blog Hop and before you go lets enjoy a little BLOG CANDY. Please post a comment below and be sure to include a way for me to contact you. PLEASE NOTE - If your comment does NOT contain contact information I will redraw another number for the prize. If you are not already a follower I would really appreciate it if you would please become a follower (following is not required to win the blog candy, but is much appreciated!) ((Note - Blogger "Follow" is having issues today - you can always try the "Follow" at the top left of  the page)). Comments MUST be posted by midnight Eastern Time on Tuesday, May 31 and on Wednesday, June 1 I will have the random number generator found in the right hand sidebar decide who will win a Hero Stamp by Paper Inspirations. It is a gray rubber wood-mounted stamp (here are some simple Hero card's I made using my Hero Stamp).

  8. Thanks Misty - LOL - that's what I get for trying to save time & effort by using copy/past. I thought I proofed myself, but I have always thought it is easier to proof someone else than to proof myself. :D
