Stamping Away From Home

Have you ever stamped away from home? Well I do...and I always forget at least one stamping item. Very frustrating to say the least!
I'm house/dog sitting (Thursday thru Monday) and thought what a great opportunity to get some cards made. Not! At least not as many or the one set I wanted to work on.
Forgot to pack one particular set and also forgot the ribbon. Agggg
Well I did manage to finish this birthday card today and I'm not too sure if I like it or not.
I ran my Creative Memories green through my Devine Swirls folder....then added a layer of navy Bazzill card stock. The stamps are from the Michaels $1 acrylic bin stamped with Color Box Chalk Ink. Then colored in with SU! watercolor crayons. Polka dotted organdy ribbon is from one of the many ribbon shares I've joined.
Not sure who will be receiving this card...but at least I am one up on bday cards for now. *grin*

Male Birthday Card

This is a birthday card I made for my brother this past year. I felt this card was perfect for him since his name is Joe and he loves his coffee.
This card was inspired by someone on SCS...but at the moment I can't remember who gave me the inspiration.

Another Bella!

Now...can you handle another Bella? *grin*
I just love working with my Bella stamps. I just love how this card turned out and I'm sure one of my sisters (not saying who) will love her birthday card. I stamped cakeabella on watercolor paper and used my SU! watercolor crayons to color her. (have I mentioned that I love using these...and I now have purchased the whole set *grin*) Backed cakeabella on Bazzill cardstock that was punched with the scallop punch. The DP is My Minds this! I remembered seeing a card quite a while back that had a birthday candle attached. Don't remember who posted it on SCS....but I knew one day I would be using her idea.
I know my sister will love receiving one of my bella cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy 4th. of July

Church bells rang out over Philadelphia on July 4, 1776.... signalling that the Declaration of Independence was approved and officially adopted by the Continental Congress.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation...

Thomas Jefferson
The Declaration of Independence (1776)

May you all have a happy and safe 4th. of July. And also remember what our country stands for.
