Did You See American Sniper?

Did you see the movie “American Sniper”? Ann & my favorite huMAN did. They said it was really good but it had a sad ending.

We watched 20/20 last night on ABC and after watching that, we just had to make a patriotic card. With Memorial Day later this month, a military thank you card would be great.

You could give it to a veteran or perhaps …

Simply Thank You for Your Service

Simply Thank You for Your Service

Have you made your favorite veteran a thank you card for today?  We made one for my favorite huMAN and he loved it. Ann’s mom was in the service back around World War II, but many of our vets are men so let’s talk about those masculine cards. This is a simply simple masculine card, but it would be grrreat for ALL veterans – or anyone that likes a vintage American look. You could spruce this up with an embossed background with the big shot.  That’s what we would normally do, but every now and then, simply simple does the trick.  You can check out more thank you cards...

This Thank You is For You!

This thank you card is for all those peeps down the street who were making all that racket and flashing lights last night. I couldn’t see the lights, but I could hear the sky light up. We’re just glad there wasn’t a fire in the dry field next door. Whew!

But this dog has it under control. I actually LIKE to stand outside watching lightning even though I don’t like getting wet.

Go figure.

All I need is a set of Stars Framelits & some red, white and blue card stock and I’ve got a patriotic card.

4th of July Thank You Card

Don’t you think a thank you card is appropriate for the 4th of July? You could send it to someone who invited you over for their 4th of July barbeque. We sent our May clients a handmade card that they could send to a military person that they knew to thank them for their service.

Last night, Ann did an online stamp class with some of the Master Stampers about the ombre technique. They made a couple cards and we made this card with the leftovers from our stamp table.
