Memorial Day OWH Hop ~giveaway~

Pin It

THANK YOU to all of those in the military for your service!
We are the home of the FREE because of the BRAVE!
God Bless You!

The Hop starts HERE if ya want to start at the beginning!



I just love how this turned out!

The bird is from the {ippity} set: Music of my Heart
And the sentiment is from the {ippity} set: Regal Greetings


I used Cosmo Cricket papers and embellished with
some burlap string and a button to finish it off.




Operation Write Home is a fabulous organization!
It is an amazing feeling knowing your cards will brighten someone's day!

I haven't seen anyone comment relative to your question about the white binding material... I hope that increases my chances of winning (LOL) as I say that I'd try to paint it with some of the Inkabilities colors I've owned for years and never even opened! I like the version of red, white and blue you used for your card, too.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Hi JenMarie Sweetie...
I am Country Wings your newest follower. I love this card that you have made for OWH. There is something about little birds that just tug at my heart. Maybe because they are so free to fly, that is what makes this card so appropriate for the soldiers. Allows them to be free for that one moment in time. Thank you for sharing.

I have never made a card, but this blog hop has so inspired me to create. I am going to make a few while I am home recooperating from lung and chronic asthma issues. I am still confined to the house for 2 more weeks, so I am going to see what I can create this week. Thank you for the inspiration.

Please stop by and say hi. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Theresa said...

Great card. TFS

cal8007 said...

I hope I'm not too late for this! It has taken me two days to go through the blog hop enjoying and admiring the cards you all are making!
