Memorial Day Blog Hop!


Hi crafters!  Welcome to 104 Cards for Soldiers.  I'm happy you're here.  I just love Operation Write Home.  Our soldiers do so much for our country and make so many sacrifices; it's an honor to give back to them in whatever way possible.  The cards that are sent to them make a big difference both for our heroes and their families.

The theme for this bloghop is sketches.  OWH has great sketches.  They are always giving me inspiring card ideas.  This card is based off of sketch 121:


And this mural card is inspired by sketch 120:  


One more card for you.  I wish that I could take credit for it because I think it is just SO CUTE.  It's a bit early for Christmas cards, but I couldn't resist sharing.  This creative card was made by a friend.  She used sketch 118:


Thanks for stopping by.  Have fun at the blog hop.  Hop on and leave some love for all the dedicated card makers  (as well as keep an eye out for blog candy along the way).  Cheers!

  8. They're all such great cards, but, like Ellen, I think my favorite is the second because the scene is so sweetly poignant.

    Also agree with the others that it's never too early for Christmas cards. I've been stamping and coloring a couple each week in an attempt not to be too crazy during the holidays. (Of course, some time I'm going to have to turn all those images into actual cards. Which will probably be last minute, lol)

  43. Wonderful group of cards. Your big candles are pretty awesome. I don't even want to think about all the time it took to color the second card. So well done. I think my favoprite is the wreath card. So very clever. I would have no patience to make that either.
