Memorial Day Blog-Hop Inspiration

Words cannot adequately express my appreciation, admiration, and gratitude for the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for my freedom. The only way I can think of to thank them is by offering cards I make that have been inspired by other cardmakers that have the same heart I have for our military servicemen and women.

Operation Write Home is having their annual Memorial Day Blog Hop today with 146 Bloggers offering their inspirations!!! Start HERE to join the fun and maybe make some cards of your own along the way!!

I'm only on the 5th Blog which belongs to Donna at Donna Inks and I couldn't keep going without trying her tutorial!!

Now I'm off to try some more cards!!

Keepsake Frame

WOW!!! I can't believe I haven't posted in 6 months! I hope I still have some followers out there!!!

I've been busy doing everything but crafting for a while, but I feel like I got my mojo back... Hopefully my schedule will permit me to keep on it for a while!

I made this Keepsake Frame for one of the sweetest little girls I know! Got the idea from the most recent CTMH catalog and I've been antsy to try it!!

It's pretty self explanatory.... you can use just about anything in your stash to embellish and personalize a frame!! I used an 8x10 on this one but I also have some smaller frames I'm going to make some more gifts out of.

I really like how the flowers and butterflies pop against the dark background....

And no project is complete without a little bling and ribbon!

I'd love to see what other ideas you come up with!

Thanks for hanging around... I appreciate you taking the time to visit my page!
