Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue

Hey y'all!  I've been feeling better, so I decided to sit down and play with some new toys tonight.  Last weekend hubby bought me a new Sizzix flower die, and I was very excited to try it.  I had this fabulous sketch from Creatalicious, and I just had to create something with it.

This is what I came up with:

Besides my brand new Sizzix die, I also had a brand new digi image from Kenny K  Isn't she wonderful?!  So tough and sassy...just like me. (Well, like me after a little nip or two. LOL!)  She was colored with Copics and a clear glaze pen for the white.  The paper is from We R Memory Keepers' Yankee Doodles.  (Don't you just love that bunting paper?!) The ribbon I've had since I started crafting and had never actually used before.  It just happened to be a perfect match for her hair.

Ok, once again it's getting late (someday I will finish a card before 11pm), so I'm going to keep it short.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of your support.  Mwah!

OH I do keep telling myself it's almost August over and over. It doesn't help. I'm sick of the attitudes from my husband and kids about having to share the housework load that I can't do and then my mom who lives with us is trying to help but my kids just don't want any part of keeping the house clean or picking up after themselves and she winds up screaming her head off at them every morning before she leaves for work because the kids are so rechid! I need to have this baby so I can get back on my feet and take over! I don't want to hear my mom screaming anymore. Not that the kids don't deserve to be yelled at right now, but my mom doesn't deserve the crap that's making her yell! Oh and BTW, cute card! Red, white & blue is my thing. I'm a 4th of July baby!
