OWH Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop!

We're so happy to be participating in this HUGE blog hop that Operation Write Home has organized to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend! We're just one of MANY blogs participating in the event, so if you came here from any direction other than directly from the OWH blog, please click here to start at the beginning: Start Hop!

We're all using OWH sketches this weekend, and because there are so many to choose from, you'll probably want to bookmark where they're all found for future inspiration. I'm using SKETCH #111 for my card:



Card uses Pelican (#4912) & Best Fishes (#1207)
I pierced around the DP, so it would be eligible for this week's Hambo Hoedown challenge. (Come play along with us, and earn free digis each week you play!)

Hambo Stamps proudly supports the mission of OWH, and to show our support, we're offering a whole line of digi stamps, illustrated by Asela Hopkins, with proceeds going to OWH.


You can find these images in the "Hop Art Designs" category in our digi store. This is an on-going benefit, so you'll be helping OWH with every Hop Art Designs digi purchase you make!

And today thru Monday, May 28, you can use coupon code OWHMD20 to save 20% on your Hambo stamp orders -- rubber or digi. If ordering rubber, please be sure to mention this code when you email your order. For our digi images, the code can be entered in the discount field during the checkout process.

Wishing each of you a safe & happy Memorial Day, and much fun with the rest of your hop! (Click HERE to continue with the hop.)
