OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop!

If this is your first stop, please click on the picture below to take you to the first stop on the hop.


Happy Memorial Day!
I'd like to start with a simple "Thank You" to all of our veterans and current soldiers.  I think we realize more and more everyday that Freedom truly isn't free, and for all of the sacrifice given by past and present soldiers we can't Thank you enough!
For the hop today, I created this Missing you card using images from DRS Designs.  I've combined this with this week's sketch challenge from the Card Patterns blog.  DRS Designs is the sponsor of this challenge and is giving away a $20 store voucher!


In honor of the Memorial holiday I thought it would be appropriate to create this card with a red, white and blue theme.  I thought stars worked well too!  The sentiment I used as the focal point is DRS Designs Hello, How Are you Greeting (849G).  I created the star panel in the background using their Interlocking star background (819H) that I stamped in red, and the Starry Background (124H) in blue. 

Hope you're enjoying the hop and if you get a chance this holiday weekend to do some stamping and card making of your own, I hope you'll play along with the Card Patterns sketch.  Good Luck in winning the $20 Store Voucher DRS Designs is giving away! 
Next stop along the hop is
Karen's Blog, Creating With Kajikit.

Thanks for hopping along with us and have a safe and happy Memorial Day!

Smiles,
Jennifer

I love this layout, and your stamping the background paper really adds a fabulous finishing touch! I need to stop back later when I have more time to droll!!!!

I also have some OWH cards that weren't listed on the main hop page. Don't forget to sign up to win one of my blog candies! http://stampingwithgrandmalee.blogspot.com/
