    You have a lot of great cards, but my favorite has to be the one with the butterflies. I am big on butterflies and I like the way you have stamped them around and then colored some. I don’t sew on my cards, but the stitching makes this card a more beautiful card. Thanks for sharing your ideas and sketches.

    This post is simply overflowing with inspiration and every single one of these cards is beautiful! I am partial to red, white and blue so Patti’s ‘Thanks for All You Do’ card would be my favorite but only if you forced me to pick just one. 🙂 Thanks for joining in the hop and supporting Operation Write Home. I don’t think I could survive without my Thermoweb ZOTS!

    Love the butterflies on your first card and how they fly off onto the side border. Great stitching, too. The second card is probably too lumpy to qualify as an OWH card, but would make a beautiful Any Hero card. Love the flowers and the texture on this card. I’ve already commented on Patti’s card on her personal website – stunning! I really like the CAS card with the little tag hanging. Beautiful papers choices with the single brad in front. The next card has some great CAS lines as well. Love the tull that is stapled next to the Hello sentiment. Rebecca’s card is so dainty and lacy . Love the bows and tull border. And finally, Erin’s card has beautiful embellishments. Love the doily and twine. Thank you one and all for the great assortment of cards! ~ Marilyn
