OWH Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop...

Hello and welcome to my spot on the OWH Memorial Weekend Bloghop! If you have stumbled upon my blog and would like to hop along with us then you need to start here. Why not play along, there are lots of challenges, blog candy, tutorials and more! Remember we are hoping in memory and in honor of our heroes, our veterans!


This is my Hubby, My HERO...SSG Jason McDaniel. He is currently serving a 12 month tour in Afghanistan. I am so very PROUD!

Okay, now on to my cards...



This first card I created using "Tank You" from KAH-Wink-E-Dink. Kristen is giving this image as a freebie. So be sure you hop all the way through, you don't want to miss it! The papers used are from K & Co. Stickers and ribbon are from my stash and the ink is CTMH.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Midnight Madness-Sketch
Tuesday Taggers-It's a Man's World
CAS-Tastic Challenge-A Touch of Green
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp-One for the boys
Digi Doodle Shop-Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays-Thank Full
365 Cards-#86 Keep it Simple
365 Cards-#89 Courage & Strength







My next card is the card my children will be sending to their Dad along with his Father's Day Gift. The image was a freebie from Sew Many Cards. Isn't it just the cutest?! The inside of the card reads "When I grow up, I wanna be just like...dad" "Happy Father's Day". Again, the papers are from K & Co., the ink is CTMH and the stickers are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Tuesday Taggers-It's a Mans World
CAS-Tastic Challenge-A Touch of Green
Digi Doodle Shop-Anything Goes
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp-One for the boys
365 Cards-#86 Keep it Simple
