Happy Fourth of July 2008

That is Martha Goose. She has been in the family for quite a few years! She has outfits for just about any occasion - from Christmas, Valentines Day, strawberry picking and more! She is always ready for fun. I was trying to be artsy with the photo and instead I got wonky! Ah well, too many fireworks, I guess.

For this quick Happy 4th card you will need the following:

Stamps: Warm Words
Ink: Night of Navy
Paper: Ruby Red, Vanilla, Night of Navy
Accessories: Large and Small star punch, hemp twine, crafters tool kit edge distresser

As I said in my previous post, my daughter and I had been goofing around with stamps today, and I got inspired by the holiday. In just a few minutes I had this cute card made. I cut the blue 3" wide by card width (5 1/2"). With the 3 inch width the large star punch lines up top to bottom perfectly! Punch large star in center. Punch random smaller stars in blue. To get sparkle word in center of star I traced the star outline in pencil, then stamped sparkle, erased lines. Adhere blue to distress edged vanilla. Adhere those 2 to ruby red. Tie on your hemp and you are done!

Happy Fourth everyone!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Keep being creative, Sandy
