Happy Birthday America

I have spent a lazy day "celebrating" my countries Birthday. I stayed in bed half the day, catching up on alot of my taped TV shows. Gotta love it.

I wanted to share a couple cards I made for the 4th. The first one was sent to my mom.

The stamp reminds me of a collection I have, "Cherished Teddies" The image was stamped in black with Stayzon ink on white cardstock. I colored the image with my watercolor pencils. The image was mounted on blue cardstock after "distressing" the edges with the black ink. The patterned paper is from a DCWV mat stack. Ribbons are from the $1 spot at Target.

The next card was sent to my in-laws but they probably won't receive it until tomorrow (duh..should have mailed it Saturday-not Monday),

Rubber Stamp by Stampabilities-Flag of Peace. Image stamped on white cardstock, colored with watercolor pencils, inked edges and then mounted to a piece of red cardstock. Red cardstock inked and then mounted on piece of the DCWV used on other card. That piece was inked and then the whole thing mounted on blue piece of cardstock which was inked and mounted to white card base. Ribbons from $1 spot at Target.

Hope you are enjoying your midweek holiday. Later we are heading to town for a fireworks show. Tomorrow I'm meeting my aunt Mary for lunch. She surprised me with a call this morning saying she was down from NY.

Til later...............

There are also some websites that claim to offer the Viagra online without the necessity of a prescription. These websites are often based in other countries and offer remarkably low prices. However, the cheap Viagra they offer is usually counterfeit. Much of it is manufactured in China and Buy Cialis may contain very harmful substances.
