Operation Write Home {OWH} Memorial Day Blog Hop.



It's Blog Hop time!  Operation Write Home is hosting a fun and inspiring blog hop this weekend.  I'm so honored to participate with them.
 

I often get my inspiration for cards from sketches.  Did you know that OWH has ahundred (or more) sketches on their website that you can use anytime?


We were asked to choose a sketch to follow and here is what I created using Navy Boy from Inspired Stamps and sketch #:153

 
Then head over to the OWH blog to see ALL the wonderful artwork that many participants have created for this blog hop by clicking HERE

Thanks for stopping by today!
Ill see you soon with more Creation!!
