I made this first one for my sister Maggie. If you have been reading my blog for a while you may remember that I make her a special card each year for Flag Day. I know it is not a usual "card" holiday, but it is a tradition between us. You can see last year's card and explanation here. This year I decided to go with a kitty dressed up like Uncle Sam by The Stampsmith. The patriotic paper is from the Tim Holtz Seasonal paper pad. Distress ink was used to age/antique the image.
Next up is a graduation card I made for my nephew Christopher who is beginning High School in September. I decided to use some of the fun goodies from my Simon Says Stamp June Kit. It is the first kit I ever used, so it was fun to try my hand at using some new products. I decided to use my Stampers Anonymous Lightbulb Blueprint stamp, as I thought it went well with the sentiment I found in the paper pad. Tattered Rose Distress ink was used on the image as it went very well with the sentiment color.
A special thank you to all who have sacrificed so much for our country and our flag! I hope if you live in the U.S. that you will hang out your flag today and show your appreciation and love for it along with me.
Until next time!
