WELCOME to the HOP of all BLOGHOP's!
Welcome to my stop on Operation Write Home's Memorial Day Bloghop 2012 . This is my fourth year participating...my lil' sister and her hubby are in the Army National Guard. My sister has transferred from FL to the Hawaii National Guard. Her husband just returned from deployment in Afghanistan at the end of April. Our family is so proud and grateful to them and for all of our men and women serving in the armed forces and I love doing my part by using my creativity to support such an awesome cause...Operation Write Home!!!
My card design is following Operation Write Home's Sketch #101. I am using a quirky bird from my new plate of Mary Vogel Lozinak Stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps! I stamped this with black ink on white cardstock, then hand colored with Ranger Distress Markers and Glaze Pens. The background is a scrap of Basic Grey Patterned Paper on a purple card base. The stripes are metallic gift ribbon adhered with Miracle Tape. I finished off this "Quirky Bird" with some colorful feathers and he's ready for the party!!! I will be entering this in the VLVS Mary Vogel Lozniak Link Up Bloghop which is going on this weekend as well which will feature creations using Mary's hand-drawn images pressed to rubber.

Wishing you and your family a Happy Memorial Day!!! I hope you are enjoying the festivities! Thanks so much for dropping by. You can CLICK HERE to get back to Operation Write Home at the top of the HOP!
