Jarheads For OWH Midweek Throwdown
I'm so proud to be a contributor to Operation Write Home and join in the Midweek Throwdown challenge being sponsored by Dude Time Doodles today.
Check out the Operation Write Home blog today and pick up a FREEBIE or two!!!!!
Now what is a JARHEAD!!!! When I was working on this card my husband walked in and looked at it and said it looked like a jarhead! Well, hello......what in the world is that? Since he's a former Marine, he just happened to know what he was talking about. A jarhead is the slang term that was used by sailors in WWII for Marines because they said that when Marines were in their dress blues with their stiff collar they resembled a Mason Jar - hence the name Jarheads.
This image from Bonibleaux Designs is called The General. Of course I HAD to use some camo paper on it and I also printed the image twice and paper pieced his pants and hat in the camo. The flag was also printed twice, colored, then "popped up".
Thanks for stopping by........and go check out Operation Write Home and Boni's store at Bonibleaux Designs today! While you're roaming around in blogg-land, don't forget that Bnoibleaux Designs is also sponsoring the Stamps R Us Challenge (anything goes).
