OWH Blog Hop

Hello OWH hoppers! If you have lost your way you can return to the start at OWH Stars & Stamps


I hope that you're enjoying the hop as much as I am, but that you will also be taking some time this weekend to honor the true meaning of Memorial Day.

 Butterfly/Nature stamps & Journal Tag from the $1 Bin at JoAnn's
Paper DCWV Summer Stack • EK Success Notebook Edger Stamp
StampinUp - 'Definition of Love' Background & Miss You Sentiment


FIND OWH DEADLINES HERE IN THE MAILROOM.

I'm offering up the blog candy pictured here to a random winner I will draw on the morning of Wednesday, June 1st. If you'd like to be included just leave your email address with your comment (remember to spell it out —yourname at gmail dot com — to avoid getting on the spam lists). 


Thanks for stopping by and if you aren't already a member of the OWH family I hope today's hop encourages you to become a part of this wonderful group in whatever way you can.

Your next stop on the hop is

Your card is beautiful. Butterflies are an image that I don't use very often but I really like what you have done with them here and have made a note to give it a try. I noticed that you have included the perfect stamp to do this in your gift package (hint hint.)

Thank you again for your post yesterday reminding me to observe Memorial Day as well as enjoy the hop - I am fortunate to never have lost a loved one in the service but I realize this doesn't mean I don't have anyone's memory to honor. So, I am honoring the Civil War heroes in my heart this weekend on the 150th anniversary of that great war - the only war where every hero lost was an American.

Sherry Hickey said...

Hi Paula! Speaking of works of art--that's what your card is to me. I print my favorites for my reference file and I even have one of yours under the plexiglass sheet on my desk where I can see it. I love the vintage feel of your card, the butterflies, the pop of pink, and the unexpected graphic touch of the border punch. Sorry for this long post! Thanks for all you do.
