Red White Blue "miss you" - OWH Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop May 29, 2010

Welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop!  Thanks for stopping by!  If you arrived here from Joy, Dustypenny Designs blog then you are in the right place but if you arrived on my blog in the middle of the hop and want to start at the beginning, please go to the OWH Stars and Stamps blog for the start of the hop so you can get the 'full experience' for the day.

I am so happy to participate in this Bloghop again.  In fact, I started my blog last year in order to participate in the first OWH (Cards for Heroes at that time) bloghop.  It was a great turning point. Thanks to Sandy, to the OWH and to our heroes most of all for their dedication.  Time to time I can't help remind myself that I am a foreigner here however, I learn and become a citizen each day by making cards for heroes and share my passion with others. 

I am going to have a surprise blog candy for three winners to celebrate my one year blogging.  Leave me some inspiring comments and I will randomly pick winners on June 1st.  Thanks for your comments.
I found out these links that I wanted to share with you.
Memorial Day History
How to observe Memorial Day

The theme of this Bloghop is Red White Blue "Missing You" card.  So here is my card that I want to share with you.  I hope you will like it.



The next stop on the hop is Darlene blog. She is very talented and I am sure you will enjoy her creations. 

Thanks again for stopping by and wish you a wonderful day.

    Congratulations on your citizenship to the United States! I'm not sure how long ago you arrived, but I'm glad that you've jumped onto the bandwagon and helped make cards for Operation Write Home.

  66. I LOVE your card, it is CAS(clean and simple) yet beautiful!!

    something inspirational, huh?
    (thinking)...Perhaps a touch of "stickles" or inking the edges of the flowers?

    I have lots of cards through out my blog in posts and I have a slide show near the bottom.

    I also like collage...so you may want to think about collaging some cards sometime.
