Star Spangled Star ~ Happy Independence Day!
Happy Independence Day to all! I hope you are having a good holiday! I dislike the fact it is on Tuesday this year, as I had to work yesterday and tomorrow. Wouldn't it have been dandy to take off Monday? I am sure some of you got to do just that. I did get to knock off a couple of hours early at least. I have not posted in a few days but that doesn't mean I haven't been hard at work on design team projects and previous commitments. I really like to get them all out of the way before I play with other challenges. I still have a couple of swaps to do but I was playing with some stars and stripes and had to make more cards than I needed...here is one of them.
I just purchased this stamp a month or so ago at an antique store. I often check out thrift and antique stores, I had been eyeing a bin of stamps at this store for a while but I just felt they were too pricey...and let's be honest, do I NEED anymore stamps? No, did I buy some yesterday at a thrift store, yes... Anyway, this one was really neat and the price was right when they were reduced 50%. I bought about 6 or 7, some great sympathy sentiments that my collection could use and this one. I was just enamored with the lyrics in the star and own very few 4th of July stamps. Buying with purpose! Now yesterday's purchases maybe not so much..
Here's the ingredients I used:
Little Yellow Bicycle Vintage Summer 6x6
Our Daily Bread Designs Double stitched star dies
Kiwi Lane templates Mini Madison 2A &2B
Stampabilities Star Spangled Star
Quick Quotes Navy and Barn Board chalking inks
I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
