Operation Write Home Memorial Day BlogHop


Hi all,

Today is Operation Write Home’s Memorial Day BlogHop. You can follow along here. http://wp.me/p2kUr6-4o6     We were asked to make a card for the hop using the colors red, white and blue.  I used this cute little girl  and part of a card base from the silhouette on-line store.  I used my Cameo to color and then print and cut the design.  As this was a paper piecing image, I had to assemble and add color to each piece.  It was easier than cutting each piece out of card stock as some of the pieces are very small.  I used a CardzTv stamp for the missing you sentiment.  I hope you all enjoy the hop!
