This is block 5 of the Ramblin' Rose Meets Jamestown quilt.  I like having a block a month to work on.  I just signed up for another block a month that is a 10-month program for a quilt called "Mill Girls".  I'm really looking forward to working on it and reading the writings of some girls who worked there and what life was for them.

OWH Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop

OWH is a wonderful organization that sends cards to our military that are deployed so they can write and stay connected with their family.  This group is near and dear to my heart due to our experiences in the military and knowing how much it means to have that mail on both ends.  When my husband was deployed, our kids looked forward to the times they could share a little of what was going on in their lives and know their dad was okay.  I'm grateful for those that serve and have served our great country.

I made this card using sketch challenge 160 from OWH.

Stamps:  Service & Sacrifice, The Brave & the Free
CS:  Night of Navy, Real Red, WW
Ink:  Stazon Jet Black, Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Night of Navy
Misc.:  Chevron EF, dimensionals, watercolor brush, star punch

*I forgot to put the star on to the left of the sentiment.  I will have to take a picture later.  My husband has patiently waited for me to celebrate our 18th anniversary.

Have a great…
