More Red, White & Blue!

I really love this stamp set! I've made a few different cards with it and it's so easy to make each one different! This card will be going to one of our Heroes via Operation Write Home.
To make this card cover the card base with patterned paper. Stamp the grid, stamp the letters, hearts & stars. Cut out the grid, add the star brads. Mount the grid on the card with glue dots.
All supplies are CTMH:
Bingo Alphabet Stamp Set D1478 - (Also comes with numbers)

Memorial Day 2011 - Fort Rosecrans - San Diego, California

This is one of the prettiest places in San Diego. Today there is an American flag next to each grave marker here. So many of our troops for so many years have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation and our freedom. God bless them all and God bless America.

OWH Missing You Blog Hop

This card was really quick to create. I wanted to make a simple card that was just a little different so I used a border punch on the front edge and added some organdy ribbon.
All supplies CTMH: Kraft CS base, Dreams Come True stamp set and TLC stamp set. If you make cards using dark paper be sure to line them with a white or very light colored CS inside. Next hop is to Jennifer

I would like to add a great BIG thank you to Everyone who purchased one of these stamp sets. I am absolutely amazed that a $5 stamp set generated such a significant amount of monetary aide.

You & Me National Scrapbook Stamp Set - Making cards......

The card making possibilities using the stamp set that comes with the You & Me Scrapbook  Kit are endless. So next time you want to wish someone a Happy Day for any reason, at all just grab this stamp set and your card will come together perfectly! Paper used for this card is from the Mayberry paper pack. Colors are Smoothie, Chocolate, and Olive.

You & Me! Celebrate!This layout took no time at all to create!

You are going to LOVE this kit! The reversible papers are cardstock weight, there are tons of embellishments, including this chunky ribbon, and a perfect stamp set! The You & Me Scrapbook kit was absolutely perfect to use for these little girls who are part tom-boys and part princesses! These little girls live miles apart and seldom get to play together so it certainly was a day of celebration for them. The stamping and journaling tell the story of the fun they shared and how being part princess makes feeding a goat seem not so cool!
What will you create with the You & Me kit?
