OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

Hope you are enjoying the OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop.  They are always so much fun and it's great to see all of the talent out there.  Memorial Day is always special for me as that was the day I got married to my late husband.  He was a Viet Nam vet so this seems like a special way to honor him and our special day.

I could not decide which card to post today so here is the first one.

 
The sentiment is from the Silhouette store, Lucky Charm paper from American Crafts and stamp is from the Stampin' Up Set Sail set.
 
 
The die cut of Minnie Mouse is from Cuttlebug, You Rock die cut from My Favorite Things, and paper is miscellaneous stock.
 
 
So after you leave a comment move on to the rest of the hop.  There is lots more to see!  You don't want to miss any of the goodies out there!

  3. I love the "you rock" wavy die from MFT (also in my collection). I haven't used it a lot, but your card makes me want to break it out. I like the way you off-set the sentiment to make it pop.
