Happy 4th of July!!!

Hello from Naval Station Mayport, and HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!! :) I made 2 patriotic cards this morning. I made the backgrounds for both cards by pouncing Barn Door and Broken China Distress Stains onto cardstock. My very own abstract fireworks backgrounds. :) For this card I used the awesome God Bless The USA Heart Stamp Set from PeachyKeenStamps. 
 I embossed the white panel with a folder from The Paper Studio {from Hobby Lobby} it is called Tiny Stars. Love those itty bitty stars! :) And here's my other card for today...
For this card I used the My Little Firecracker set from MyCreativeTime. I stamped the star panel on the side with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink. I used the same ink to stamp the greeting. It's my favorite black ink. 
And there ya have it! My cards for today!  

I hope you and yours have a very happy and safe 4th of July! And perhaps in between bbqing and the fireworks, you can get a little shopping in! :)

  4. Thanks for the beautiful cards. The video was neat. Thank your sailor for his service. We were stationed at Mayport as well. I am a retired Navy wife. My husband was on the Yosemite while we were there. So I know how it is when they deploy.
