Operation Write Home World Card Making Day Blog Hop-Thank You Card

Welcome to Operation Write Home's Word Card Making Day Blog Hop:)  Are you enjoying all of the wonderful talent out there?

This year we are focusing on Thank You's for our Hero's. Either a card for them  to send or an Any Hero Card with a special word of encouragement from us.

The challenge was to also use an OWH Sketch




Here's my take on the sketch:


The card is lined on the inside with white paper that is stamped in the bottom right corner with "Giving Thanks"

Supplies:
Simon Says October 2013 Card Kit
Theresa Collins Now & Then Buttons
American Crafts Ribbon
Hero Arts Latte Ink (Discount Code Christmas 13)

Blog Candy: Be sure to leave a comment to be entered for a $20.00 gift certificate from a2z scrapbooking


Have fun making cards today!
