2012 OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

Hi, everyone. Thanks for stopping by Scrapping with Purpose, one of the stops on this year's Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop.

                        

When I think of Memorial Day, three things come to mind:
  • our troops, past and present;
  • my mom and mother-in-law; and
  • memories of summers past and hopes for summers to come.
For the hop, I've made cards for each of these. All three cards were inspired by OWH Sketch #59.

  

For the Troops: Two American Treasures



For our Moms, with Love



With Thoughts of Summer: Footprints of Love


Thanks again for visiting. Details for the cards posted are included in posts for May 23 and May 25.

Nice group of cards Sybrina! I am partial to red, white and blue so the first is my favorite. It would be great as an Any Hero note. Thanks for joining in the Memorial Day hop and for supporting OWH!

Your cards are very nice. It's always nice to see how many different cards can be made from the same sketch.

These are all wonderful cards, but I especially love that soaring eagle on the first card with old glory working the background! The touch of burlap really sets it apart as a special card!

They're all great and I like how you did such different takes on the same sketch. My favorite is the first. That eagle and burlap just brought it up to fabulous!

Patricia said...

This is a great way to show how many different looks can be achieved with one sketch. I think the eagle card would make a super AnyHero card.

Lovely. Happy Memorial Day weekend. Hugs

great cards...love the first one with the cut out.

Teena said...

wow!!!

Lucy said...

I'm amazed that a single sketch can yield such diverse cards. I shouldn't be, since that's what they're for, but (like melting embossing powder) there's always that "wow!" moment. Nice work on all of them. Thanks for participating in the blog hop and for your continuing support of our troops.

Gorgeous cards and a good example of how one sketch can look so different depending on the papers. I just love the eagle in the 1st card and the distressed papers.

Your patriotic themed card is wonderful, I love the design you created with the sketch you chose. Your other 2 cards are great, too, and completely distinct even though you used the same sketch. Each card is a beauty in its own right.

Brenda Hugar said...

Great cards. Loved all of them, especially the patriotic one.

Sue D said...

Wonderful selection of cards--my favorite is the first patriotic card.

I love the first card! Great papers and I love the eagle in the center!!

Kay said...

Great cards - it's always nice to see all the different ways a sketch can make a card look.

Diana E said...

I like the 'eagle' image on the first one, and the burlap 'mat', and I love the footsteps one. Thanks for supporting OWH.

Valerie said...

All three cards are just beautiful. I really like the eagle in the first card between the strips and stars! Like the burlap under the paper and what looks like brads. On the second card I really like the butterflies out of print paper with bling. Like the ribbon under the images. The third card is so cool. Not sure if the paper was printed this way or you stamped but I like the little footprints and the I heart U! I really like the different ribbons and fibers under the sentiment!
