This is third semester of the House of Cards Challenge site. HOC was the first site to use a single theme and to promote a variety of card styles. Since we have started I have noticed other challenge sites are doing the same thing! But remember you saw it first here.
The theme for the month of July is add a ribbon- or more than one. This week we are sharing the creations from the CAS team.
I thought long and hard about what I would do. The recent events in the Middle East reminded me of the first Desert Storm invasion and how everyone supported the troops by tying yellow ribbons around trees. My yard was full of yellow ribbons even though I had no one close to me in the service. There is a long history behind the tying of yellow ribbons. It started even earlier with tying yellow ribbons to support the hostages in Iran and all the way back to the Civil War. The American Forklife Center has a very good article if you more interested.
Of course there is the is the very popular song by Tony Orlando and Dawn- Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree.
Please join us at House of Cards and share how you would add a bow or two or three or more to your creations.
