First, Happy Memorial Day to all! It is a beautiful, hot, sunny day here in PA, and although we are enjoying the weather, our hearts go out to the families of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we can be free.
I had a little free time today to stamp a couple Christmas cards for my stash! The first one is for SCS’s CAS121, which was to use folded or scrunched ribbon:
I know it is difficult to see in this photo, but the ribbon ends are adhered at different points as they “frame” my little Scottie dog. I lightened this photo so you can see it a bit better:
The stamp is from Picture Show; DP is Max & Whiskers, BG; image is colored using ink & blender pen. Easy peasy.
The next one uses the Mojo Monday 193 sketch:
and also qualifies for the Jingle Belles “We Three Kings” challenge, which is to use three DPs in your card. So here we go:
There’s actually no stamping on this card, except for the sentiment inside!! Yikes! I altered the ribbon element to fit my picture a bit better. The images are from Crafty Secrets, DPs are Wassail from BG. Here’s a closer view:
The snowflake is from SU’s Northern Flurries diecut, covered in Versamark, Heat & Stick Powder and some MS vintage glitter.
I don’t have any pictures of Miss Cassidy today, but I do have a couple from the Memorial Day parade John & I were in! He marches with other servicemen; I march with my local Curves:
In our driveway, on the way to the parade;
One of the Curves girls, Barbara (not shown), brought three alpacas to march with us! Carol, the owner, got elected to help “walk” them! She, Barbara, her husband Jerry and I all went to school together. Who would think so many (many, many!) years later we’d be walking alpacas down the main street of our little town of West Grove, PA!!! LOL! They were quite a hit with everyone! I hope you have a wonderful day!
