It's Red, White and Blue Week on the Blog

And the first thing I am going to do is push the meaning of that theme to the limit.  :-)

In my mind, red, white and blue are the patriotic colors of the United States of America.  And I am making 'Any Hero' cards this week in honor of Memorial Day.  And even those this card isn't actually using the colors red, white and blue - it does honor those who are serving the red, white and blue.

Here is another card that will be going to Operation Write Home.



I used this stamp from Stampers Best and some Tombow watercolor markers to color Ciara.  The photo frame is from Stampin Up.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  This card is going to one of our heroes serving away from home.  For more information go to OWH.

And here is a video I did on the water color technique I used to make yesterday's Memorial Day Card:



Thank you for stopping by the blog today.  Tune in tomorrow for WOYWW.

Deuteronomy 6:4 - 5  Hear, O Israel:  The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
