OWH Memorial Day Bloghop


First of all, I want to thank all our servicemen and women for all they have done and continue to do to serve and protect this great country we live in and call the United States of America. God bless you!!

It's been awhile since I've participated in any OWH bloghops. I've been making cards for OWH since July 2007. Where has the time gone?!

Here is my card based on Sketch #69:



















I tried and tried, without success to get the eagle to link but it won't!!


Thanks for stopping by. Now, its time to continue Hopping....

The gold is great with the red, white and blue. I always tend to grab for silver but you've convinced me I need to hunt down some gold now too. Thanks for joining in the Memorial Day hop and for supporting OWH!

Great job. I agree about the eagle. I couldn't get it to work either.

Great card-- I love the gold with this color combo-- I would have never thought to use it with the red, white and blue!

JoAnn Ross said...

Like the others, I LOVE the gold with the red, white, and blue and the two-toned ribbon is a super finishing touch!

And I'm glad (relieved) to see that I wasn't the only one who couldn't get that eagle to work!

Nicely done. The gold is a perfect backdrop for the beautiful papers. Thanks for your participation in the hop and support of the troops.
