HAPPY 4th OF JULY !!!

These two cards I made in a hurry...Two of my friends have birthday's on the 4th and I only had a little bit of time to get these done. The stamp in the background is one that I won from Lynda Benden. It is from SU and is called "French Flair." This stamp is perfect for many swirly uses. I used Versamark ink and then covered the image with Red Glitter Embossing Powder and then used my heat gun. I punched out the stars from shiny paper I got from Michaels and then used red, white and blue ribbon to add to the patriotic touch. The sentiments were from my computer to make the cards personal and I also had a personalized sentiment on the inside.

Today I am happy to say is my rest day...and I plan on doing nothing but fun stuff...relaxing on my patio with music in the background, reading my latest book, watching a movie, and the best...making cards! I am so very blessed and I hope all of you have a very blessed and happy 4th. Keep safe! Thanks for your visit !

What a great use of French Flair! Thanks for visiting my blog...you are so very sweet! I'm really not tech savvy...I use Kodak Easyshare software for any cropping...I actually have Adobe Photo elements...have had it for awhile but just haven't loaded it. Have a super week!!!

What an absolutely fabulous idea to use this stamp for a 4th of July theme! I'm having one of those "why didn't I think of that?" moments! Just wonderful!
