OWH Memorial Day Sketch Bloghop!
Welcome to Bits of Cheer, my stop on this year's giant Operation Write Home (OWH) Memorial Day Sketch bloghop! We were challenged to make card(s) for today using the sketches in the OWH archive! AFTER VIEWING MY BLOG AND AT ANY TIME DURING THE HOP CLICK HERE TO RETURN TO THE OWH STARS & STAMPS BLOG TO CHOOSE WHICH BLOG YOU'D LIKE TO HOP TO NEXT! I made three cards for this weekend's big event; I hope you enjoy them! My first card is based on OWH SKETCH #44 - I really wanted the American flag to pop on this card, so I only colored the flag, using Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol odorless mineral spirits. Image: "Porch Flag" rubber stamp, Serendipity Stamps. Sentiment: Studio 18 MLT, inked with Inkadinkado Stamping Markers. Inspired Stamps. Die-Namics Dizzy Doilies Duo, My Favorite Things. DP: Fine and Dandy Girl 6x6 DP Pad, My Mind's Eye. Pink Lace on a Roll: Recollections (Michael's). Sentiment: Stampendous. Shiny shoes and eyes: Glossy Accents. OWH Stars and Stamps blog, where you will find thumbnails linking you to all the blogs on today's hop. Have fun and have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend. God bless our fallen heroes and those who are protecting and defending us today! Sherry
