Memorial Day Sketch Blog Hop


Hello my friends! Today I am so excited to participate in "Memorial Day Sketch Blog Hop" from Operation Write Home. This is my first time joining OWH and not the last one for sure, my husband was a Marine and he is so proud of it. I am a proud wife :)

I created 4 cards using Sketch 105, they are very CAS. The flower imageand the thank you sentiment is from Nature's Greetings, the other sentiments are from All Occasion Tags and One in a Million sets by Gina K. Designs. I also used Fabric and Washi Tapes from Love My Tapes. Just to be sure the litlle rhinestones won't fall out, I used my heat glue gun to secure the it.
Here are my cards:






Now, what a bout a little giveaway. I am giving away a brand new roll of Jane Fabric Tape from Love My Tapes. The only thing you need to do is to leave a comment, telling me anything you want, easy peasy.


Don't forget to visit the other blogs participating in this blog hop and leave them some love :) To start the hop click HERE

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day.

I am a clean and simple cardmaker and just love your versions from this one sketch. I thought they were ribbon scraps at first, then realized you mentioned fabric tape, which I've never use...yet!
