Hello blogland and welcome to my stop on the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop. You should have come here from Patty at Patty Creates blog, but if you're lost, click on the banner at the top to get to the start of the hop. If this is the first time you've stopped at my little blog - welcome!
For my "missing you" project this weekend I'd like to show you a clean and simple card using a Sizzix embossing folder and a small Stampin' Up stamp which was cut out with a Nestabilities scallop circle die.
This card was in my last box of cards that was sent to Operation Write Home and I hope it made someone smile when they sent it to a loved one. When my Dad was in the Army in 1940 there wasn't an organization like this that provided cards to write home, so I'm pleased that I help our service men and women in a little way with a few cards.
This card will be going in my next box of card to OWH - I made it for this week's Clean and Simple Challenge at Simply Scrapping Crafts. The background was created by using Lindy's Stamp Gang Ponderosa Pine Olive spray, then I heat embossed the Band of Brothers stamp from Stampers Best, used some Tim Holtz salvage stickers, some faux stitching on the side, and 3 acrylic stars and it was done. What a good message to remember as we celebrate this Memorial Day weekend - Freedom isn't free.
Now on to your next stop on the hop - Amanda at Who are You Calling Crafty? Enjoy the rest of the blog hop!
