CYCI128 Patriotic Clean and Simple

Happy glorious Monday, peeps!  The sun is shining, the air is cool and it's a beautiful day!  I made a very quick card today using the Can You Case It sketch:

 John's nephew is in the Navy reserves and is at Officer Candidate School in Quantico, Virigina.  I totally forgot that I bought these Our Daily Bread Patriotic Collection papers, so I thought these would be appropriate for a card for a guy:

I hope he's not offput by the swirls and the little enamel star, LOL!  

The sentiment is from Paper Pumpkin; the stamped star is from Every Occasion, and the stitched circle is Lil'Inker!  I lined the inside with white cardstock so John & I can each write a little something to Phil to let him know we are praying for him!

The wee one is back from vacation, fresh and ready to show us her confident bike-riding abilities!  I helmet, no sneakers, and she's riding one-handed!  But just look at that smug look on her face!  And NO training wheels!  I think a bigger bike might be in order come birthday time!

Enjoy your day!


  1. Fabulous red white and bed card LeAnne! Looks at Cassidy go, tell her congratulations and stop growing so fast!

  2. Hi LeAnn, Love the card!! I really like the circle with the star in the center. Thanks for playing with us at CYCI this week. Char

  3. Love your red, white & blue card, LeAnne! The paper works beautifully with that circle & star panel! Can't believe how much Cassidy has grown up and now she has mastered riding her bike! I am still learning to ride my bike at 50! LOL Congrats to her! Hope you had a great day! :)

  4. What a fun patriotic card LeAnne!! I like the subtle swirls and mix of patters. Oh boy, is little Miss Cassidy growing up way too fast!! That is a confident "just look at me go" look on her face!!
