Memorial Day Bloghop

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone.  I sure hope everyone enjoys the hop!  My card is a Whipper Snapper soldier, colored with copics.  I used Sketch #37, a really old one.  It was perfect for this little guy.  I hope you like it.  To get back to all the links, click on the OWH badge.  Have a safe, fun weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

  35. Whenever I see camo, I always think I have to do olive and brown. I love how you went outside the box and did him in all gray. I think you chose the perfect sketch to highlight him, and accented with those little stars to take the card to a level that says it was crafted with great love. Thanks for your participation in the OWH Blog Hop!
