Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop

Good Morning Creative Friends & Welcome To Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop. Happy Memorial Day Weekend To You All. First we would like to give a BIG THANKS to all the families who have lost a loved one who has served in war. Because of you  we live in a free nation. Truly THANKFUL for you all! This hop features some pretty amazing creative crafters. You can see the full  hop line HERE.  For this hop OWN asked us to create a card using the colors: Red, White, and Blue. We was also asked to follow a sketch created by OWH. We also have different themes being featured thorough out the hop: 

Love Cards
Birthday Cards
Missing You Cards
Thanks You Cards
Any Hero cards w/notes inside written TO them 

I picked sketch #144. You can find it HERE 

 For my card today I did follower the sketch with an add twist of adding a second heart. I really love the way this card turned out. I used My Creative Time: Puffy Hearts and Die. I started out by die cutting each heart on a stander A2 size card. I used my Studio Calico inks to ink my heart and a fun heart embossing folder to add some texture to my card.  Over all I love this card 


Thanks For Visiting and Happy Crafting An'Jenic
