OWH Blog Hop- Blog Candy





This is 'Operation Write Home' Blog Hop! I'm stop #69 and if you came from Shelly's 'Create with me' your in the right place. I've been creating cards for OWH for over 18 months and I love the group.
OWH is amazing, the girls are wonderful, they share their knowledge by making tutorials, all their blog posts, and so much more that I feel so blessed to be apart of this group. I can't serve in the military but I can serve by making 100 cards a month for the soldiers that are serving our country. My card is a digital image from Doodle Pantry
that I colored with Copic's then I stapled the ribbon to the back of a separate oval. Once I had the ribbon secure I mounted the colored oval on the image oval and added Stickles. My brown and pink DSP is about 3 years old from Pink Pazley.







This is my blog candy for our Blog Hop. It's called 'Garden of Flowers' and its a collection of 7 packs of Fabric & Felt Flowers & leaves by 3 Birds collection. All I ask is that you leave a comment and if your so inclined to do so become a follower of my blog. On Monday I will do a random drawing for the winner. OWH will post all the blog winners but I will post the winner right here on my Monday night blog post.
Thanks for joining us, now on to the next stop: Monica at Little Bit of Life - http://riverviewstamper.blogspot.com
God Bless our troops and the U.S.A.

I really like the pale pastel colors on this card. I have some friends that are into pastels and this type of card is perfect for them.

Kathryn said...

Would you consider doing a tutorial on your ribbon technique? I know you said you used a stapler, but you must have some hints as to how to get the spacing right. I tried something like this last week and it was pitiful. I haven't made a card in a week because of it! Thanks for sharing!
