Happy Memorial Day weekend, stampers!! I've had this idea in my head for a couple days now, and finally got some free time today to make it. This is Edwin Under the Mistletoe (another one of those adorable Magnolias). But don't you just sit there sometimes and think what other ways you can use your stamps? I do... so here is Edwin kissing the U.S. flag! =P
I used my Creative Memories star template to cut out the front pieces in red, white, and navy cardstock. Then for the back piece, I folded a piece of 12x12 navy in half, then set my template slightly over the edge of fold and cut out the star. Then mounted my front piece to the card. Yes, I know my stripes are crooked and not evenly spaced--but only YOU noticed that though right!?!! LOL. And yes, there are 50 stars that I glued on with a quickie glue pen. Those cool bottlecap letters I got years ago, I believe from Oriental Trading. I wanted to spell out "God Bless the U.S.A." but was missing a "D" and some "S"s ... so this will do.
Have YOU made a Memorial Day card or Mother's Day card this month?? Then you can enter it in the KLSNS Girls' PCP challenge! It goes until next Sunday, May 31st and the winner gets a free Magnolia plus some other (really sweet) goodies from Kelly's store! :) Just click on the link above and leave a comment, linking us to your card!
SO, what are your plan tomorrow--those of you who get the day off? We are taking the girls up to the cemetary in the morning to lay flower on dad's/grandpa's grave, and then a couple friends of the girls are coming over and we're planting our garden. It's more of a learning experience for the girls ;) But I'm excited to have my first vegetable garden. And then we'll BBQ. Suppose to be nice weather...YAY!! Well, have a great weekend and hope you get time to Ink Something!
For those who asked about pictures of our park dedication day, I just posted pics at our Family Blog. :)
