Finishing Strong Blog Hop


I am joining Operation Write Home in their Finishing Strong Blog Hop this Memorial Day Weekend. Click HERE to start hopping!
"Operation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, will be closing later this year. All cards need to be sent in by August 1st, so I’m helping to get the word out!”


I really like the fun Flying By stamp set from Lawn Fawn so I made a card with Red, White & Blue paper airplanes.  A card like this could be used as a Love Card, my favorite or a Missing You card.


I popped up the airplanes with some foam tape and embossed the die cut cloud to add a little texture.

Hope you can hop with us!

  1. I really like the subtle "sky" background you created. The dimensional adhesive on your paper airplanes really "makes" the card. TFS!
