Today's card is for a very special event: the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop! I'm even featuring BLOG CANDY! (read on to see how to win!)

This is a card I CASE'd (CASE=Copy and Share All) from Stampin' Up!'s Summer Mini Catalog. I just love all of the cute projects that are featured in the catalog, it is so fun to see so many fantastic ideas all in one small publication! Would you like to have a FREE copy of the Summer Mini Catalog to call your own?? Just EMAIL ME and it will be on it's way TODAY!

For this card, I used the "Red, White & Blue" Jumbo Wheel (118622) stamp. I adore the wheels, they are so easy to use! Just snap into the Jumbo Handle (103661), roll in ink pad, and roll on your cardstock. Presto! Adorable stamped images!

Awesome card, love how you used the wheel for a shadow layer then added the bright colored flag on top!!!

I love your use of the jumbo wheel! I haven't gotten the hang of those myself. My favorite thing in the new mini catalog is the Sentimental Journeys stamps since we travel a lot and I can also use for "across the miles" type OpWriteHome cards!

Love this card. Using kraft as the base is a great choice. Makes the colors pop.
Are you kidding about picking a favorite out of the summer mini??? Love the ice cream set. And everything else in there too.

Lillian Child said...

I love using kraft paper for my cards! What a fabulous creation in honor of those that protect us. My husband is a vietnam veteran and he says he wished that the OWH program would have been in place back then as there's nothing better than a card from home. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us!

Rufus said...

When I first saw this card I was thinking Hmmmm, wonder where she got that DP. Then I read and you made it with the wheel that you are giving away! Lovely!
Thanks for supporting our Heroes and OWH

As to the item that is my favorite? Well - that is impossible because I can't choose just ONE item - but I do like the set "A Little Bit of Magic' and Watercolor Trio, and Elements of Style, and, and, and . . . :)

Hi Heather - Terrific CASE with a very cool wheel. So much to love in the Summer mini but I think I'll go with Elements of Style with Favorite Thoughts being a close second.
