Patriotic Me

I was feeling a little patriotic today.  With the 4th of July coming on Wednesday, I decided to create a couple of Independence Day cards.  Hope you like them!

I used a Simply B Stamp for this first card.  I just love these stamps!  Isn't she adorable with her little skullie skirt?  =D  Papers are from We R Memory Keepers (including the sentiment).  The rose is from Wild Orchids.

The Pink Elephant: Sketch
Crafty Sentiment: Red, White and Blue
Scrap Creations: 4th of July
Paper Pretties: Red, White and Blue
Cute Card Thursday: Patriotic
Outlawz Friday Copic/Promarker Party Challenge: Where in the World: Where You Live Now

This second card I made with images from Happileigh Scrappin'.  The papers are, again, from We R Memory Keepers.  Flowers and jewels from my stash.  Colored with Copics, with Stickles added to the stars and hearts.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Sketch 
Paper Pretties Monday: Independence Day
Sweet Stamps: Patriotic or Summer
The Sisterhood of Crafters: Seeing Stars
Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge Party: Colors of Your Country

Thanks so much for stopping by!  See you again soon!
