OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop




Happy Memorial Day weekend....

The Design Team over at Words 2 Scrap By wanted to honor our brave men and women, so we are participating in the Memorial Day Blog Hop at Operation Write Home.

You can see what the rest of the team came up with by clicking on the banner below:


The theme is Red, White and Blue and I chose to use Sketch #254 from OWH for my card.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to make the red & white "stripes".
My favorite doily was die cut, then I made a Rosette from Navy blue card stock and cut in half.


Small strips of silver, gold, and stripes were placed beneath the Rosette.
Sentiment was stamped with StazOn Cotton White onto Vellum.

Many thanks for stamping by today...

Many thanks to our Heros who never returned home.
Because of you, we still live in the Land of the Free.

Love the boldness in this Penny and the use of the vellum too. Vellum can be trick to incorporate well. You always do such great work and I am so grateful that I 'met' you through OWH.

Hi Penny! When I saw your card it reminded me of the red, white & blue bunting people hang from their porches on patriotic holidays! I love the doily behind the rosette--it really softens it. So many yummy details; great job! Thanks for all you have done for our heroes; let's all stay in touch!

Love how you created the pendant - i haven't made one of those in a long, long time and I forget we can use that dimension for any hero cards. I'll have to give it a go. TFS.
