OWH's Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop


Welcome! If you've come from Operation Write Home's blog hop, you've found your next stop! Thanks for making it this far :)


Today I'd like to share "One card made Two ways!" Here is the first card :) Nothing fancy- I like my clean and simple cards! The materials I used are listed at the bottom of this post. I apologize for the not-fabulous photo... we've just moved to our next Army post, and I'm still unpacking the craft room!

To view the second card in my "One card made Two ways," please feel free to scroll down to the post below! You can also find details on my Etsy shop and other items for sale in the post below.

Thank-you to our troops, especially those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

OWH's Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop- Part 2


.: Part 2 :.

We were only asked to share one card in our primary blog hop post, but I wanted to share the second part of my "One card made Two ways!" So here's my second card, same layout, but with some extra embellishments. Again, please excuse the less-than-fabulous photo- we're still settling into our newest Army post, and I haven't found the best lighting for phots yet! :)

I ran it through my Cuttlebug to add some great embossing and switched up some of the embellies in the corner! And there ya have it friends! One card made two ways :)
Please visit my post above to take a tour of the blogs on the OWH's blog hop.
Have a blessed Memorial Day, my friends!
