OWH Memorial Day Weekend Hop


Welcome to the OWH Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop. If you'd like to start at the beginning, click on the blinkie above.

 We are all creating Missing You cards and here is mine. It's an A2 sized card on a white base. I've added blue cardstock from my stash that I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder from the Preserves Companion set, paper ribbon cut in half lengthwise is from Anna Griffin and the sentiment I printed from my computer using the Marker Felt font.

What's a blog hop without blog candy? I'll be randomly selecting one commenter to win a Seweasy Stitch Piercer from We R Memory Keepers. All you have to do is leave a comment and a way to contact you. I love finding new blogs, so if you have a blog and would like for me to check your blog out, include your blog address in your comment. Thanks for stopping by.

Your next stop on the hop is the very talented PAULA.
