OWH Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop



Happy Bloghop everyone!

Today’s hop is all about Thank You cards.

My card is based on OWH Sketch # 170. This is my favorite sketch at the moment. With this card, I have 8 different inlinkz up on the Sketch post.


I had to tweak the sentiment size to fit the “Thanks”.

Khaki paper from stash. DPs are DCWV Summer Stack. Blue paper is Chatterbox Scrapbook Walls Denim Dot. Sentiment is Doodlebug in Memento Tuxedo Black. Brads are Recollections. Pick Your Plum Baker’s Twine. Dimensional adhesive.
