Happy Camper

So excited to be part of the OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop.  I love this organization and appreciate every opportunity I have to participate in bringing smiles to soldiers.  This card falls under the "Love" category.


To give credit where due, I copied Rosemary's card but used my stamps and a red, white, and blue color combination.  I wanted to do something that wasn't strictly patriotic for two reasons: 1) I'm ornery like that and 2) it will be usable for longer than the summer.  Mostly it's because I'm ornery, though.

I will also be touching up this card before putting it in my OWH stash.  Top folding cards photograph better, but side folding cards are better for the OWH tucking process.  It is always my goal to have my cards prepared according to the guidelines so there is no need for them to end up in the card hospital.

See...I can play by the rules sometimes.

Until next time,
Becca

  5. I also prefer top-folding cards, but I'd rather have my cards show on the outside of the envelopes to make it easier for the troops to see them. It's a very small sacrifice to make, and it's not like I can take a decent photo anyway. ;/

  78. Hey, we all need a little ornery-ness in our lives every now and then! :) I really like that you've shown a fun take on using red, white and blue instead of a usual patriotic theme. I also agree with you about it being easier to take photos of top-folded cards.
