Operation Write Home Spring Hop

Welcome to OWH Spring Blog hop. You start here. You came here from Seongsook's blog, Sea Garden. Your next stop is Debi's blog and see her amazing creation. OK, now on to my cards and blog candy. I joined OWH about a year ago. The military holds a special place in my heart my DH served 8 years in the Air Force. My family is involved with a Jr. Navy program called Sea Cadets. This program has put us in touch with soldiers over seas and here. I just love creating cards that I know will brighten someones day.

This first card features a beautiful image from Fred She Said. If you go to OWH post here, you can get the tulip image free.
Recipe- Base & circle & oval- Sparkle Blanc, Frame- Red Hot Pop Tones. DP & ribbon unknown

This cute image is from Phindy's Place.
Recipe
Mat & base- Sparkle Noir, image on watercolor paper, SU DP, Blush Away Vellum.

Now for the blog candy. I have 2 gift certificates to give away. A $5 gift certificate to Fred, She Said and $6 gift certificate to Phindy's place. All you need to do is leave a comment. I will choose a winner on Tuesday, March 23.
