Remembering Why

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! Today I'm sharing two cards that remind us why we have a long weekend, sales, BBQs, and all the other things we enjoy this weekend.


This first one was created by inking up my stamps with the Distress Markers, giving them a quick 'huff', then stamping onto linen paper. The end result is a lovely texture with bright, vibrant colors.


This one was a very CAS card and can also be found over on the Mountain Plains Crafters blog today. You might also find a flash giveaway over there...shhhh! The feathers were die cut from my Simon Says Stamp dies (love them!) and spritzed with Heidi Swapp gold spray, then a couple of Pretty Pink Posh sequins were added to draw your attention back to the sentiment. All of the stamps are from Unity Stamp Co.

Both of these cards will be sent off to Operation Write Home. Hope you get some crafting in this weekend, and take a moment to remember all of our troops past, present, and future.

Happy Crafting!
