Thanks to everyone that participated in the blog hop yesterday. I really enjoyed seeing all the variations on red, white and blue. For this week's card for Operation Write Home's sketch #226 I used one of the new stamps from SU called "Life's Adventure."

OWH - Memorial Day Blog Hop

Happy Memorial Day Weekend and welcome to the Operation Write Home Blog Hop! For my card I used sketch #9 ... although I did deviate quite a bit. The focal point for this card is a stamp from the SU "Liberty For All" set (retired). For the sentiment(s) I used ChitChat stickers from Tim Holtz.

Thanks for stopping by! To return to the blog hop click here.

Weekly Challenge :: Scrapbook Paper Strip

Here is my layout for a this week's challenge posted by Relly on Shimelle's page. Although I have tons of paper strips and scraps of paper hoarded away in the "real world", I decided to stay digital for this layout. I used Stampin' Up's designer series paper called Cottage Wall. Enjoy!

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2014 (May)

Here is this month's tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2014 challenge. To me this was quite a departure from Tim's previous tags and even more of a challenge for me since I did not have the shadowpress folder or a wide selection of embellishments. So with that I had to do some improvising. I started by cutting the word "beautiful" with my silhouette in two colors of cardstock with the idea that one would be placed in the background to create the shadow effect and it actually worked.

OWH - Sketch #223

Happy May! Here is this week's card for Operation Write Home's sketch #223. I created the image by stamping with bleach on espresso cardstock and applied gold ink with the Stampin' Up! air spritzer. I cut the image about 2/3 of the way down and layered it on several pieces of cardstock. The ribbon was tied using the bow maker.
