We’re so glad you decided to hop with us! You’re going to meet some amazing ladies. We hope you have a great time visiting, and are inspired by, all the wonderful Patriotic creations.

Here are some sweet little red, white and blue cards I made for the blog hop.  I wanted to use up some premade card blanks with this great edge purchased from Michael's.  I used some felt flowers and a GDC brad.  The stamp is an old, old Close to My Heart wooden stamp.  Tim Holtz ribbon and a Creative Memories border maker with white cardstock and the Paper Loft picnic paper.

Just one card!

This is the kit I am giving away for the blog hop.  Please comment below and come back tomorrow for one last RED, WHITE AND BLUE post!

Thanks for visiting and good luck!

  2. Those are cute...really like the shape because it is not the typical card that we see everywhere.

  3. Love the different size/shape. I too have some old rubber stamps! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Love it! I may have to scraplift to use up some of my pre-cuts, as well TFS!
