Have you ever noticed that inspiration can hit at any time and any location? The other night I was dropping off an order to a customer. Her front porch and driveway are always decorated to the hilt with the upcoming holiday or season. At this time of year it was patriotic with the 4th of July Holiday coming up early next week.
One of the things that jumped out at me was a great patriotic tin daisy that was in the flowerbed. I thought... HEY, I can use our new Daisy Punch with our Real Red, Night of Navy and Whisper White.
So, here is my card.
Night of Navy - 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/2"
Real Red - 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White - 5" x 3 3/4"
Stamps: Happy Birthday Gorgeous
Now, before you go searching, there is no "USA" in the stamp set, but there is a "U", and "S", and an "A" mixed it the sentiments in the stamps.
So using my retired Washi Tape, I covered the letters I didn't want using the "U" from "It's Your Day", inking it up, removing the washi tape and stamping it on the card. Then I did the same with the "S" from "Make a Wish" and the "A" in the same stamp.
See those little rhinestones... they are perfect for covering up little smudges. (You should see my fingers, oh what a mess!)
Thank you for looking in today again. It's so nice to have you here!
Please keep everyone affected by the summer fires burning across the southwest. There is one in particular near several small towns in Arizona. Several communities have been evacuated, some with very little time to gather things together. This photo is from the Goodwin Fire.
