Crafting by Design Patriotic Card Blog Hop

Welcome.  I'm happy that you were able to join the blog hop for Crafting by Designs.   You should have arrived here from Cindy's blog.  If you just happened on my blog, why not join us and start at the beginning with Doris' blog.  If you are not a member of Crafting by Designs, why not sign up and join in the fun we have with our creations, challenges and prizes.

Our theme for the hop is simple: Patriotic/Colors of Your Flag. Since I live in the USA, my colors are red, white and blue.  Since I make cards for Operation Write Home, I decided on doing a card that I can use as an Any Hero card - one to write to a deployed hero thanking him/her for his/her service.

The card base is cut with Spellbinders Grand Labels Four so that it fits an A2 envelope.  The patterned paper is from K &  Co.  The eagle stamp is from Stampers Best and colored with Copics.  The sentiment is from Verve Stamps.  Ribbon is from my stash. 

Please leave me a comment and then hop on over to the next stop at Gwen's blog. 

Thanks for playing along with us.
