Summer Heroes

Sew Many Cards Challenge this week is to make a 4th of July/Americana/military card. It also has to be a fancy fold card. What a purrfect chance to make an Any Hero card. Miki is a Sew Many Cards image. 
I used the desert camo colors but made the patches red, white and blue. There are 3 crystals - again red, clear, blue. 2 copper ribbon brads hold the card closed. The paper was in my stash.

Since Katie keeps winning on the Phindy's Place Challenge, I have to get serious here! I came across this paper when sorting and organizing and fell in love with it. It needed a special image to go with it. What better than the Phindy Sweet & Sassy gardener? "Memories are meant to be Made NOT forgotten" is the sentiment. Sometimes it is the simplest things that make the best memories.

While Mom was not a fashion plate and those shoes would have never been on her feet, something about the scarf around the hat reminds me of her white babuska. Being allergic to many plants, she didn't garden, but this image still reminds me of her.
