OWH - Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop!


Welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Bloghop and thanks for visiting my blog.  We all like to hear "Thank You" and our Heroes like to thank those who support them too.  I chose sketch #126 to make a Thank You card for someone special.  And I want to express my thanks to all our Heroes for all they do for us and their families. 




The designer paper is from a Designer Mat Pad by K&Company (part of some blog candy I won during the 2012 Labor Day Weekend VCMP).  Cardstock is Whisper White and Early Espresso by SU.  Sentiment is Sincere Salutations also by SU.  Enjoy the bloghop and I hope it helps to get your creative juices flowing.
