Happy Memorial Day everyone!  I'm so excited to, once again, be part of Operation Write Home's Annual Memorial Day Blog Hop!  The only rules are to use red, white and blue and to use one of the OWH sketches.  I so love this weekend, lots of great cards with equally great inspiration!  


I also love this weekend, as we all take time to remember our fallen heroes and active duty personnel for all the sacrifices they have and will make for our country.  We can't thank them enough.  A special thank you goes out to my son, Captain Tyler A, MD for his medical service to our veterans.   So without further ado, I'm off to hopping, have fun everyone!  

DP:  Paper Studio Seasons II
Sentiment:  computer generated with Print Shop (really easy to make one circle label that makes 12-20 at once!)
Sketch:  OWH Sketch #196
