OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to my stop on the OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop!  The theme for today's hop is THANK YOU cards based on a OWH sketch and I have two cards to show you!

On my first card I used OWH Sketch #146 and a Sock Monkey image from Bugaboo Stamps.
 Supplies: Copics, Hero Arts- sentiment, Recollections papers, CB heart die & dots folder, MFT fishtail die and gems.  
On my second card I used OWH Sketch #161 and another image from Bugaboo Stamps called Ava Heart... Isn't she sweet?!
For this card I created a couple of punched circle flowers... if you would like to know how I made these fun flowers I have a quick and easy tutorial for you to follow here! :)
Supplies: Copics, Whimsy Stamps ticket sentiment, Doodlebug & Heidi Grace papers, oval nesties, circle punch, gems and buttons. 

Well, that's it for now... I'm trying to keep it short because I know you have a lot of blogs to visit. Click on the banner at the top of this post to continue to hop!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
