Operation Write Home Bloghop-Thank you


Hello! Welcome to my blog! I hope your enjoying the OWH Blog Hop. Please enjoy browsing my blog and consider following me! To get back to the main Blog Hop Page over at OWH you can click the badge to the right and continue to enjoy all the wonderful cards.

First, I wanted to honor Memorial day with a shout out of thanks to my nephew  Lucas who just finished bootcamp. Way to go! My best friend Colleen, my dad  and my brother who all served us in the military. Thanks so much!
Now on to the card.We were asked to make Thank You cards for the Blog Hop and when I saw this Lili of the Valley image I just had to use it. You can find Lili of the Valley Stamps here. Of course this image can be used for a wonderful "Love" card too!

 I have been trying to use up my Echo Park 6 x 6 pad Everyday Ecletic so again I used it for this card. I used OWH sketch 37
I added a little stitching from my sewing machine, a brad and some ribbon from creative cafe. The "Thank You" sentiment stamp was part of a freebie sample set Daisy & Dandelion  when I bought a Papercraft Inspiration Magazine. In addition, I tried the Cheaters Bow that I learned on a YouTube Video from StampTV but the ribbon was too thick. But you can learn how to make the cheater's bow by clicking on the link here.


There's a picture below of the Copic Markers I used for the image. I used Glossy Accents on the hat and
Studio G Glitter Glue on the dress bow as well as Glossy accents to seal in the glitter. The brad is from Recollections. I always try to use Bazill card stock, it's so luscious and this project is no exception. I used Turquoise Mist and Dusk. 


I hope you enjoyed viewing my Blog Hop Thank you card and please feel free to browse any other of post on my blog and leave comments and become a follower. I love hearing from you. Your comments inspire me! 

On this Memorial Weekend don't forget, it's your turn, to make something beautiful!


PS...OWH is in need of Hero Mail.  Take some time today to write a note or two of Hero Mail for OWH to send off to our military members to thank them for their service.
