Thank You Hopping


Happy Memorial Day!  
Thank You if someone in your family served in the Armed Forces!!!
Operation Write Home is having a Blog Hop this weekend.  The theme is Thank You and we were asked to make a card with one of the many OWH Sketches.


I really like this older sketch and tried making one very similar but ended up with squares that were too big so I thought it would make a great AnyHero card!


It is fun to make a larger card sometimes and AnyHero cards are the place to do it.


I tried again and used the measurements that OWH gives {I love that they do that!} as a guide.


  This card has 1.75" inner squares and 2" outer squares.


I have been wanting to use one of the SRM stickers and thought this would be perfect card.

Be sure to check out as many blogs as you can; you may win a prize!

  7. I really like your first card, the colors are wonderful. These make great masculine cards.

    Today I am thankful for community. We live in a smaller town and our church/school friends have become a second family to us, even though we have family close by. Community is a great thing. :)

  10. I love both of your cards. It is really nice that OWH provides info on what dimensions are on their sketches. But I think the best thing about sketches is that they are open to interpretation.

  31. Pretty colors and DP! The brad is so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Beautiful! I love the colors in the first card. You did a wonderful job on both of them. Having the measurements helps tremendously!

He rescued my sister after our mother passed when she needed healing, married her 12 yrs ago and they now have 4 of the most beautiful Strawberry blonde topped children ever!
