Happy Memorial Day

Hope you had a great day.  We went to our local parade – it is big, fun and my favorite.  Big hugs and prayers go out to all the military folks out there, and their loved ones.  I admire and appreciate you all.

I have a bundle of stamped cards to share today.  I created these using a bunch of extra kits I had leftover from a class.  So you will notice that they all have the same background and cut. :)

The cards use Hero Arts stamps and notecards… along with stamps from Stamping Bella.  Shari and I met Emily of Stamping Bella at a rep show a few months ago.  She is a doll, and her stamps are such fun.  Irresistible!  So, here are my simple Hero Arts and Stamping Bella creations…  (Forgive the photos -  they are not the best.)

A few notes on these. :) On all of the backgrounds, I added little white dots (with the fab Ranger Inkessentials Pen) to the pattern of the Hero Arts stamp.  I love how this brings it alive.  I also used the Copic glitter pens on the images to make them pop.

Oh, and this is the class card that I had the kits leftover from…

By the way, many of the greetings I used on these are from THIS set.  I love it.  Take a close look – lots of good messages there…


I really like using different stamp companies together.  What are your faves to use in combo?

OK, the Bachelorette.  Wes?  What is with that hair?  Yikes.  But I like Jillian.  She is who she is and has fun.  She reminds me of one of my favorite friends, Courtney – always the one to make you smile.  What do you think of it?  (Please tell me I am not the only mindless person watching it…)
