It's a Red, White, and Blue Weekend


 I couldn't think of a better time to post this patriotic love card than Memorial Day weekend. I used a fun die I found in my LSS called "Filling Die QD002 Two Hearts" designed by Nellie Snellen. I used snippets of dsp from my stash that have the colors of red, white and blue, and put this all on a royal blue textured card base. I die cut the letters with my Quickutz from matching dsp. This card will be going into my last box heading to OWH within the next few weeks, as they are accepting cards only until until August 1st. I think I'll make a few more of these today since they're quick and easy to put together.

I'm sharing this over at the Snippets Playground #178 & 179.

Memorial Day is a special day set aside to honor our armed forces who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom. To those who served, those who continue to serve, and those who gave their all; THANK YOU for all you do.

Thanks for stopping by, and make it a great day!

This and the other cards you are going to make in this style will make wonderful additions to your last box for OWH. Love the papers you went with on here. Your hearts really stand out next to that gorgeous blue card stock. Enjoy the rest of the day.

Gee, Carol, I wonder what your favorite LSS store is? I'm guessing it's the one you took me to, and got me hooked on all those neat craft items. LOL! (was just there a few weeks ago...)

Great card for Memorial day!
