OWH Memorial Day Bloghop

Hello!
Welcome to the Art Impressions blog!
Happy Memorial Day Bloghop to everyone!

(If this happens to be your first stop, hop on over to the OWH blog to start from the beginning)

If you are not familiar with Operation Write Home, it is an amazing nonprofit organization! With the help of many volunteers, OWH creates and sends blank, handmade cards to troops overseas, so they have the opportunity to write home to their families, loved ones and friends. This is one of our favorite blog days of the year! It's wonderful to see so many amazing volunteers and companies join together to support an amazing organization!

This weekend is so special in our hearts. We are thankful for those who serve and those who have given it all for our freedom. A sincere thank you to all those who are active and non-active military, family members who have sacrificed time with loved ones and especially those who we remember today.

Today, we're featuring a card from our designer Karen Day. The bloghop is a Red, White & Blue + Theme and Karen created this CUTE card with our Birthday Whoot!

Copics: Owl - E57, E55, E53, E51, C1, Y26, Y23, YR12
Hat - B26, B24, B21, R24, R22, R20, C3, C1
