Welcome to Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop! What a great cause to participate in! I thought it would be fun to make some cards and send them off so someone can put a smile on a loved ones face.
I made two cards for todays occasion. Since they need to be mailed I kept them rather simple. I sure hope they will be appreciated. My first card uses JustRite Papercrafts newest stamp set called Anchors Away, which I colored in with Ranger Distress inks. The paper I used is from Samantha Walker's Creative Imaginations Nautical paper line, which I thought was masculine and patriotic colors as well and fit the bill in my eyes.
My second card is more of a feminine card and is made using Samantha Walkers Creative Imaginations Tea Party paper line, which is just beautiful! The sentiment I embossed onto the label using black embossing powder and the stamp came from Samantha's Unity Stamp set called Encompassed Grace, which is probably my favorite from Samantha.
Well, that is it as I am trying to keep this short and simple. I know there are a lot of participants, so you want to check out what everyone created! Make sure you hop over to the official Operations Write Home Blog to see all the participants posts.
