We had a calm and quiet weekend which hasn't been the norm around here lately. I spent the weekend with my kids and hubby, and a little with my in-laws. :) My kids had to go to school on Monday as a 'bad weather' makeup day, so we celebrated on Sunday with a cookout. Anyhoo, I didn't really get to make much but I had the idea in my head for these cards and wanted to make them anyway.
|My two All-American girls!!|
There are two special men in my life that are in the Armed Forces and I made a card for each. They obviously won't have it for Memorial Day but might get it by Fourth of July. :)
I stamped my MFT Pure Innocence Soldier Boy (retired) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with my Copics. I used white gel pen for the buttons. The papers are Authentique's "Pride" collection. The card base is Stampin' Up's Not Quite Navy (retired) and the mats are Neenah Desert Storm. The buttons are from my stash (have had them forever but think they are from the Michael's dollar bins, back when they were a dollar) and I added my unknown twine.
On the inside, I added more of the same paper and a sentiment (in Versafine Black Onyx) from the same set.
Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
