OWH Memorial Day Bloghop

Update

Thanks to everyone who visited this Memorial Day Weekend. Your kind words are most appreciated.

  • Still smiling about Leslie's comment about this blog's name.
  • Cindy of Cindy's Card Co asked how the burlap/jute ribbon was attached. There are actually two secrets to this success: 1) I used 3D glue dots under the rectangle with the star. Pressing down on the rectangle pressed the adhesive through the ribbon. Then I added a little tape runner under the left-side portion of the ribbon. 2) Since the card is an Any Hero card, I didn't add as much adhesive as I typically do. I wouldn't use such an open ribbon design on a "regular" OWH card.
Congratulations to Heather Thompson for winning the ribbon blog candy. Heather, I'll be in touch!
