OPERATION WRITE HOME MEMORIAL DAY BLOG HOP 2011





Today is the day to pay tribute to those brave men & women that serve and protect our FREEDOM, because we know that freedom isn't FREE!.
If’ you’ve come over from Amy, Love to Crop! , you’re in the right place ;) If you’ve joined midway, please do start at the top of the hop! and I’ll see you when you hop back around my way!
I added extra white stock to the A2 size Twisted Easel card. It actually has more room for notes than standard A2.




Your next  Stop on the OWH HOP is...


Please come back & scroll down 1 post to see the other cards I made for this hop before I realized we should only post one for the hop!

Great card! Love all the border punches!

Susan said...

LOVE your card, is it some kind of angle-easel card? really nice :)

and is that a white German Sheppard I see? I had one, My "Honey" (lady-luck on her AKC papers) She was the best dog I ever owned, and i still miss her. She was put down 8/10/01 she had a massive tumor enveloping her bladder. She would have been 11 the following March.
Her breeder used to live down the street from us.

I live on five acres in the woods also, out by the boy scout reservation and Camp Amity Acres GS camp. we aren't too far from each other, LOL

I am very sorry to hear about your son.

Enjoy your weekend!
Susan
