Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Operation Write Home Blog Hop.  If you are just joining us and would like to start at the beginning, please click on the link below.

Our blog hog theme is "missing you."  I don't have a stamp that says that exactly but I think "thinking of you" means the same thing so that is what I used.
I also decided to make a masculine themed card because you don't seem to see them quite as often and because I seem to be stuck on that theme lately.
I used the colors always artichoke, not quite navy and black.  I use the stamp sets, Teeny Tiny Wishes and Lovely as a Tree.  Lovely as a Tree is my favorite go-to stamp set for masculine cards.
I didn't include a picture of the inside, but I lined it with a piece of very vanilla cardstock that I stamped with another stamp from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.

 

Thanks for stopping by and now please continue on to Doris' blog at

  1. Thinking of you is a perfect sentiment for a missing you card. LOVE your color scheme, definitely masculine without being too dark.
