Stars and Stripes (Operation Write Home) Sketch Challenge

Scrap card

How did it get to be the end of May? Summer is here. I believe the school kids have about a week and half left of school then the fun begins for all the families. And it is Oldie Moldie Monday - dig into those old papers - and create something beautiful - I actually try to make several cards out of the paper since it is out. I am now on my 4th card out of this paper pad, embellishments and rub ons. Come back later this week to see a few more.
Busy getting the lawn mowed and a few plants planted. I work outside for awhile and then I come in and rest and play with paper; and then start all over again. I think I will make one more trip outside to do some more planting. I know my body will have a few "not so kind words" to say to me tomorrow.
The first card in the group is based on the sketch from the Operation Write Home card blog - every Sunday they have a new challenge - they even tell you what size to cut your paper (shhhh - don't tell anyone but I may fudge on that sometimes. Did you happen to do any blog hopping with Operation Write Home - over 150 blogs participating. I am still working on getting through everyone. Here is the link for my post for the blog hop.
Everyone have a wonderful evening - why oh why do we have to go back to work tomorrow.
