HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY, OWH!

Not everyone can say: "My mother was a Marine!"

Yep, during World War II.  And, I am proud of the fact! Semper Fi!

To help commemorate her service and that of many, I am taking part in the Operation Write Home (OWH)  Blog Hop.    Here's where you can start the hop!






Michelle over at Can You Digi It? is helping sponsor and has some cool freebies here!  I have mixed the freebies with things available in the store, so check them out too!

Here are two cards that I made!
This card was based on Sketch #5 and this next one was just because...lol!

Thanks for stopping by!
Huggz,
April

How awesome to be able to tell everyone your mom was a Marine during WWII! I love the hearts and banner design and I am so glad you brought that sketch to my attention this weekend. I think I may have missed it the first time around. Thanks for joining in the Memorial Day hop this weekend and for supporting OWH!
