OWH Blog Hop


Welcome to the OWH Sketch Memorial Day blog hop. You can see the start here http://operationwritehome.org/starsandstamps/


I used three of the OWH sketches for these cards.
Sketch 2 from the PDF file.

Sketch 165










 Sketch 111


The sentiments are from Pink By Design's set that I specifically for OWH cards. I love being able to make cards that I would not normally get to make. OWH is a great cause and I am glad to be able to help in this small way.
