Happy Memorial Day Weekend

I am taking a break from stamping today (sort of!) although I do have some things to post. This morning our little town had its little Memorial Day Parade. It is short & sweet, but it is meaningful in its own way. My DH was in the Navy Seabees, so he likes to march with the other participants. It is an emotional time when you think about all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives so we can live in this wonderful country. We should pray every day, thanking the Lord for the blessings we have.

Memorial Day 2008 John & LeAnne

John & me

Thanks for sharing a little of our day!

Now for some quickie stampin' stuff: these are some cards I stamped during the week for a stamp club girl who is expecting! She wants to make her baby announcements with a Wordsworth stamp, so she asked me for some suggestions. These are what I've come up with so far; I like to make very simple cards when I know my customers are going to be making a lot of them!!

Baby Card 1 Baby Card 2

Baby Card 3 Baby Card 4

These are fairly simple, and there are ways to make the steps even easier: the star and the squares on the pink card can be punched out, and the bottom portion of the sailboat can also be punched out using the SU 1 1/4" punch!! How easy is that? TFL!

  • Stamps: Wordsworth sentiment, Nursery Necessities, Fun & Fast Notes
  • Paper: WW, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Almost Amethyst, Cert. Celery, Berry Bliss DP
  • Ink: Bashful Blue, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Almost Amethyst, Stazon Black
  • Acc: Markers, punches, dimensionals

LeAnne your cards are just adorable! You did a very nice job!

I know what you mean to feel blessed with what we have and also that we have soldiers who fight for our freedom. My son is in the Air Force and my heart overflows with pride for what he has done and what he is doing. Yes, I'm a very proud mom :)
