Can't believe it's here already, and I've missed blogging since Valentines Day.  However, I have been busy both with my paintings and cardmaking for Operation Write Home.   So want to welcome you back here with these patriotic cards for the occasion.   Let's all think about and honor, in some way, all of our veterans past and present...our true heroes.

Just for fun, made this next one using the new stamp by Stampers Best that was designed by my own daughter, Sandy for OWH and kinda follows their sketch #63 where Ciara is all decked out in patriotic colors, and the other follows sketch #122 for Ciara in camouflage.

 Also want to share at least one of my latest pastel paintings below.  I had an old sketch of this barn located on the fairway of a local golf course.

Fairway Hazard....11 x 14

Wishing everyone a beautiful summer ahead.  Thanks for stopping by.

Great cards! Ciara is so cute decked out in the red, white and blue.

The pastel is lovely too Dolores. You did a wonderful job capturing the light 'just right.

Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Your pastel of the barn is just gorgeous. You have quite a bit of talent. I just love that picture.

Love the cards, especially the Ciara ones! I've done her in camo, but missed the patriotic idea. Too cool!

And what a pretty painting! I have serious art envy; Although I inherited my Irish grandfather's and parents' writing talents, as much as I'd love to be able to paint,, I can't draw at all!
