Patriotic Whimsy

I seemed to have drifted away from doing blog challenges - my intentions are good but by the time the evening comes and things have settled down, I've lost my mojo. Well I don't know if it came back but I did get a quick card done. I used the sketch from OWH Stars and Stamps for my inspiration. I also went with the colors posted for the Just Us Girls challenge, Red, White, Blue and Kraft (optional). I pulled out some of my CTMH purchases - Whimsical Wings stamp set and Blue Ribbon paper packet. I did some sewing around the DSP and added some twine and pearls. Told you it was quick and easy card. Inside sentiment says "Just wanted to say hi." Now I must get to the grocery store (the yucky part of my day) then out to lunch with the girls to celebrate a birthday. That's the part I'm looking forward to!!!!! Have a wonderful day yourself!

Your card is awesome...i love the way the colors coordinate so well and if ever a card called for stitching it was this one-great job. I also LOVE your blog design..did you create it yourself? My son has AS...a milder form of Autism. Take care, cheryl
