Monday is Memorial Day in the USA, a day set aside to remember and honor the men and women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Operation Write Home is an incredible organization that supports our nation’s armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.

Please see my OWH fundraiser at the end of this post and be sure to comment to be eligible for blog candy.

My card is from sketch  #85 (modified)

OWH Midweek Throwdown X 3

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

 Our challenge this week is Times Three!

 We’re challenging you to use something on your card three times, an embellishment, maybe the stamped image?  for our heroes to send home to their family and friends!

I’ve been on a Halloween card making frenzy lately, I saw a card similar on Pinterest and had to make one with my Silhouette and embossing folders. The original used letter stickers and was so adorable. Here is the original:
