Lady Of The Harbor

Hi, guys!  Today we are celebrating Independence Day here in the States.  I thought I would share a few cards I made for the holiday.  I made them for my parents, my hubby's dad, and a friend.  I know that it is not the usual "card" holiday, but I love to send cards when I can't be with those I love.

I am entering her in the Simonsaysstampandshow challenge: Anything Goes


This stamp is one of the Blueprint stamps by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.  I love how it turned out.  I used Vintage Verdigris embossing powder to emboss Lady Liberty.  I love the antique copper look it gave the image.  The inside has a strip of embossed stars along the bottom. I used Core-dinations paper and sanded it.

For this next card I used another Blueprint stamp, and used my Distress Markers to watercolor it.



I decided for the next one to be a bit more whimsical.  I used this fun stamp by Riley & Company.  Riley as Lady Liberty! I used some fireworks stamps from my July Simon Says Stamp Kit, and Lily Bee patterned paper.


I thought I would share a video with you by a trio called Brother Sun.   They are three of the finest musicians and gentlemen that I have had the privilege to meet.  The song is called "Lady of the Harbor." I think it is perfect to share on this Independence Day.  As an American, and a New Yorker, she means so much to me.  I hope you enjoy it!


Wishing all those who celebrate a very happy and safe July 4th!

Until next time!
