OWH sketch 90 - Thank you, hero

This is a gorgeous CAS sketch for this week! Have you seen it here?? My uncle - my elderly uncle, a Navy WWII veteran - is flying to Washington D.C. this week with our area's Never Forgotten Honor Flight. They send veterans to Washington D.C. all expenses paid to see their war memorials.  I'm cutting it close to the deadline, but I am positive this card will get to the offices before they leave so they can give it to him in D.C. The trip is not the surprise, but letters and cards from family are friends are. Cool, huh?

















Paper: K&CO Americana stack
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co
brads from stash

There is a blue layer under the dp that is stamped with a burlap background. You don't really notice it in the picture but I think it looks cool in real life. LOL The inside just says "thank you, hero."

Thanks for looking! I think I can use this sketch to make many more cards!! :)  Play along with us!

  1. I smell a CASE coming on since I have those papers. How wonderful that your uncle will get to go see his monument in D.C. Having taken my grandfather 7 years ago, I can tell you it's quite an experience for a veteran!

  2. Jen... I would love to send a card to your uncle if that's okay. Your card is awesome and I'm sure he'll love it. I took my kids on a trip to D.C. a couple of weeks before we moved from North Carolina.. we had a great time. Lots of walking, but nobody complained at all. blessings ~ Pam
