OWH Memorial Day 2012 Sketch Bloghop


(click on the red button to go to the master link for all of the blog posts)

The day has finally arrived....and I am so excited!  I love the annual OWH Memorial Day Bloghop - it takes the entire weekend to get through all of the posts and I get totally overwhelmed and have to take breaks....but I really enjoy all of the inspiration!



It is no secret that I love Doodle Pantry images and the turtle is certainly one of my very favorite DP characters.  This cutie is from Turtle Trio - the digitally colored version (I have neither the time nor the talent to color this good!) The sentiment is part of the set and I placed it using MS Word and the .pgn files included in the set.  The patterned paper is also  included in the set and I have layered it with Stampin' Up! Garden Green and placed it on a Cuttlebug embossed piece of Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie.

For this card I used Sketch #21



Thanks for hopping by my blog today...your comments are always appreciated
Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!



P.S.  The link to the next post on the Bloghop is located on the Master Post - click on the banner at the top to find more wonderful inspiration!
