Memorial Day Card



What a day and to think it's only Wednesday! I came home today to a summons for jury duty now to get them to extend it until the work season let's up at work because my boss doesn't believe in one having to do their civic duty!

I thought I would share a card I made for Memorial Day today. This is another card I made during my sleepless weekend:) This cute sailor is from Sparkle N Sprinkle . I have admired this stamp for some time and only recently received it. I think it is perfect for this or any other patriotic holiday. I also got to use up some of my eyelets that have been lying around for a long time on this card. I colored the sailor using Copic markers and used Lasting Impressions paper on card with the exception of the white CS. To create the sentiment I used a font and printed it in black ink, instantly after removing from printer I embossed it with clear powder and heat set it.

This card along with complete instructions will be appearing in their gallery shortly.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you take the time to remember those that served our country this weekend.
