Happy Memorial Day







Good morning – welcome to my stop on the hop. Hopefully you came from Deborah’s blog. If you get lost, just click on the image at the top of the page and it will take you home – just like Dorothy clicking the heels of her red shoes. I am glad you were able to stop by and check out my card.



I found this great collection by My Minds Eye and wanted to use it on my card. Luckily Hobby Lobby had their stamps on sale last week – so I got this Miss You stamp – I know I will get lots of great use out of it. Hearts and stars dedicated to our heroes. I love having the Spellbinders to use for my hearts and the stars is a big die cut from Sizzix.

Thanks for visiting today – your next stop on the hop is Darlene – Expression by Da.

Thanks to all the cardmakers who make Operation Write Home such a wonderful success.

Nice color and design combination. I see this as one you should make more than one of. lol I know, hard for you to do

Lisa Oliver said...

Mom first thought as your post opened was "Wow! I love it!" Something about the plaid paper makes me smile. Your tribute to our heroes with "hearts and stars" is great - I am sure I will remember that phrase every time I use my die cuts, too.

Thanks for sharing!

Really like your card. I like the heart and star combination. It says it well.
