Celebrate 4th of July Patriotic Card



I signed up for a Patriotic Card Swap on SCS the other day and tonight thought I would make up a card ~ that might, or might not end up being the card I make for the swaps.. this one took some time.. I was using my stamp-a-mi-jig and had stamped the little dot to fill in the cirles.. but must've not stamped it right because it was off.. so I had to restamp it and then realized I could eyeball it and that is how I did the rest.. on the first one I used a white marker to try and cover up my boo boo. I used several sets on this card.. Celebrate Everything, Mark the Date, Full Calendar, All In a Row and Independence Day. Cardstock colors are: River Rock, Blue Bayou, Ruby Red, Whisper White and Western Sky DSP. I used inks in the colors of River Rock, Ruby Red, and Blue Bayou. Circle Punches and some Linen Thread ~ and of course Dimensionals!!! my favorite thing in the stamping world.

It's been a very long day.. our FRG (Family Readiness Group) held a Battalion Family Picnic today and it was chilly and windy.. and then finally the sun came out. We had a lot of fun and some really good food. I took over 600 photos that I will need to sort through.. I took some of everybody and all the games, etc.. it was a blast!

Thanks for looking and reading ~ Pam

God Bless All Our Military
