OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

Happy Saturday Y'all

Today I am sharing a card I made for the Operation Write Home Sketch Blog Hop.

You can find a PDF listing of the past OWH Sketches HERE. I chose to use sketch #41 for my layout.


There are a ton of blogs for you to check out on this hop, so I am going to skip on the details and send you back to the Operation Write Home main page where you will find a complete list of all of the participating blogs. Just click on the banner below and you will be taken to the hops home page.


I can't thank our amazing men and women serving in the Armed Forces for all they do to protect our freedom.
