OWH Memorial Weekend BlogHop



Welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Weekend BlogHop, you can click on the picture at the top to start from the beginning.
My take on Red, White & Blue

Paper= Stampin up Pacific Point & American cardstock white
Ink= Stampin up Pacific Point, Real Red & Always Artichoke
Stamp sets= Gina K Garden Silhouettes and Branching Out (totally loving Gina K) & unknown missing you stamp
Ribbon from Michaels

Same card just in different colors and a different stamp from the Gina K Garden Silhouettes set





Colors are Stampin up So Saffron & Elegant Eggplant

Now go see what Sudie has to show you....

Both cards are great! I like how the first card uses the red, white and blue color scheme without being a "typical" patriotic card showing stars and stripes.
