Memorial Day Bloghop: Operation Write Home


Welcome! If you arrived here from Paula's blog you're right on track! You can click on the logo above if you need to return to the start. Here is my card:
All stamps used for my card (except my old unknown sentiment stamp) are in the gorgeous Vintage Postal set from Stampers Best; ribbon from Michael's; Tim Holtz Distress Ink Orange Marmalade.
Blog candy: On 6-2, I'll draw a name from all who post a comment. Blog candy will include a copy of my children's book!
Your next stop is Angel . Have fun on the OWH Hop and a happy and safe Memorial Day.
