Operation Write Home's Memorial Day Blog Hop

Welcome to Operation Write Home's Memorial Day Blog Hop!! This wonderful 3 day blog hop contains more than 145 fabulous bloggers! I am honored to be among them. I created several cards for this hop but since they've asked us to only post one to help make this go smoother and quicker for our wonderful hoppers, I picked my favorite! I will post the other two cards next week!



















This card is one of my favorite House Mouse images. I colored the image with BIC Mark-Its for the flag and watercolor crayons for the mousies. I highlighted the stars on the flag and the background with a gelly roll sparkle pen. The offray bow is enhanced with a crystal bling and a Jenni Bowlin stickpin. The cardstock is Bazzill Basics and the pattern paper is Tim Holtz. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Thank you for looking! A Happy Memorial Day to you and yours!

The next super hop stop is : Jan at  She's Gone Stampin'
