Operation Write Home BlogHop


Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
Yes, it's a three day weekend for most of us, and the "unofficial" start of summer,
but it's also a time to pay tribute to our servicemen and women, past and present.
  I am participating for the first time in the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Bloghop! 
The theme for this year is to use the colors red, white, & blue!
I used sketch #110 from the OWH blog.


I love how super easy this die from PTI is to use and it fit perfectly with the sketch.
 I used the Quilted stitched pattern die from Lil' Inker for added detail to the base.

Thank you for visiting and have a great weekend!
Happy Hopping!
