Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop

Welcome to the next stop on the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop. I'm posting a little early since I will be at a soccer tournament all weekend. You should have arrived here from Lisa's blog at If not, you can start here from my blog and make your way around to all the blogs on the tour. If you prefer to start from the beginning, you may go to

The theme for this blog hop is Missing You. I used The Open Sea stamp set and Nautical Expedition DSP from the current Stampin Up! Summer Mini. I used Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Grey, Early Expresso and Very Vanilla SU! card stock and Not quite Navy and Basic Black ink. I did not have a Missing You stamp, so I used a Thinking of You stamp from Hero Arts.

I hope you like my card. To continue on the blog, please visit Susan at her blog at

One of the requirements for this months theme is to color in the image with either markers, pencils or Water Color Crayons. I don't have very many current SU! image that I can color but I finally decided on the flower from the Friends 24-7 set.

I used the Splitcoaststamper sketch this week, SC322. I colored the image in with Melon Mambo and Old Olive markers. I used Melon Mambo, Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango cardstock since it coordinates with Beyond the Garden DSP from the summer mini.
