Typically, weekends are pretty quiet in Damask Love Land. This weekend is a little different though!

This weekend I am taking part in a very special blog hop, sponsored by Operation Write Home – a wonderful organization that provides handmade cards for servicemen and women so they can keep in touch with their loved ones! How can you say “no” to that!?

For this hop, bloggers are sharing their handmade “Missing You” cards, many of which have a Β little patriotic flair!

I kept my design simple with pops of red, white and blue!

***EDITED TO ADD: Blogger has been acting a little funny lately, and the “Follower” widget seems to be out of commission. If you’d like to become a follower, just log in and click the “Follow” option that is located on the very top, left of the screen. Just scroll up the top of the blog and you’ll find it! Hope this helps!**

Now for your next stop on the hop:
Stamps: Hero Arts Life of the Party, Papertrey Ink 2010 Anniversary Set
Ink: Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black
Paper: Papertrey Ink Stampers Select cardstock
Other: Tombow Watercolor Markers

Keep on crafting with these other posts

  1. Also glad your comment section showed up – I visited earlier & could not comment. Wondered if it was just me, but seeing how few comments have been made on such a stunning card I have to assume a lot of people who would have commented could not.

  2. Ahh…I can comment now! πŸ™‚

    Totally awesome card. You do so many styles well, but I adore your clean and simple.

  3. What clever imagery with the balloon floating away and I love how the sentiment picks of the feel of the balloon strings too. Very nicely done! Thanks for supporting OWH and hopping this weekend.

  4. Hi Amber,

    Great job on the card. Im a new follower and glad to be part of this blog hop with you.

  5. *love* this, Amber. In the short time I’ve been reading your blog (you’re one of my first checks in Google Reader), I have learned quickly that I want to be like you when I “grow up” in my card-making abilities. I love your style!! this one is no different.
