OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop 2014

Hello and welcome to my blog... I'm so happy to be one of the stops on the 
Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop!

The theme this year is to make a red, white & blue card based on a OWH sketch. I love to work with red, white & blue, so I have two cards to share with you today! :o)
On my first card I used OWH Sketch #134 and the Love- Bike Ride image from 
Bugaboo Stamps.
Materials: Copics, Pebbles Americana-paper, Spellbinders Inspire Celebration die (sentiment), MFT heart die, CB Mesh EF, EK Success corner punch, Glossy Accents & gems  
On my second card I used OWH Sketch #153 and another image from Bugaboo Stamps. Isn't this Beach Ball Crab adorable?!
Materials: Copics, Sentiment- computer generated, Pebbles Americana- paper, QuicKutz Palm tree die, $1 sea shell punch, CB Tiny Bubbles EF, Sequins & Glossy Accents 

That's it for now... click on the banner at the top of this post to continue to hop. Have a happy & safe Memorial Day weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
