Memorial Day Weekend Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Two years ago, I found Operation Write Home online and joined them for a Memorial Day Blog Hop showcasing cards for our Heros. Once again we are BLOG HOPPING to honor our troops and their families.
To start at the beginning you may click on the box below.



If you arrived here from Barbara's 
Paper Therapy Ponderings then you are right on track. She shared a beautiful Red, White and Blue heart and star card.

This is the card I made for the Blog hop.  I kept it really simple.
The stamp is from The Angel Company tm.
Sponged the sun and colored with markers.
Click on   Redonna at  
Perpetual Playtime for your next stop in the hop. 
Thank you for stopping by and have a safe weekend.
