OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop 2014



Yahoo! It is time for one of my all time favorite blog hops!
Make sure you start at OWH so you don't miss any of the blogs!

Our mission today is to create cards using red, white and blue in one of the OWH categories- love, happy birthday, miss you, thinking of you and thank you.  I made a card for one of our military to send home and another card to use for a hero card!


The stamps I used today are by Sugar Pea Designs-really nice artwork, wonderful customer service!
So- is this guy not the cutest chef ever? His pants and shoes are paper pieced. I made the brick oven from a background stamp and cut it into the shape of the oven. I used Copics for all my coloring. 

My next card is my hero card. I used a Sizzix die set to create the easel card. I love this mild mannered gent turning into a super hero right before my eyes! Doodlebug and Pebbles papers combined for a patriotic card....and the stars are by Queen and Company- and they act as the stop for the easel!


The card folds flat to kit in an A2 envelope.


Why are you still here? Go- hop! Get inspired and make some cards!
Thanks for stopping by,
Diane
