Sigh...a beautiful (even if it DID rain!) three day weekend has to end... It's been a great weekend. We've had absolutely nothing on the agenda's except visiting with out of town family, and a trip to the graveyards. We took a liesurely drive today to the latter, and took in the devastation from the recent storms. It's amazing - looks like a war zone. It will take the city of Fredericktown, Mo., months and months to clean up the trees, roof debris, glass debris, etc. Very sobering day... even the cemetaries were not exempt. Hundred year old trees were splintered like they were toothpicks, or entire root balls lifted out of the ground... Mother Nature sure was angry about something! Our DD took lots of photo's - I will try to borrow her card and post some photo's soon... in the meantime, she has a couple of photo's up on her blog - you may need to open them to see the hugeness of what's there.
Tonight's post is a quick patriotic card that I've done for a swap. It's a TAC stamps only swap, and I had to sort of use a bit of this and a bit of that set! I used stamps from the Fleur Birdies, All Seasons, Sprigs, and Trendy Greetings sets. I actually used the flower 'burst' from the Fleur Birdies set for the background on the red CS. I simply Versa Marked it on for a bit of color on color.
Enjoy - Yikes! It's unbelievable how quickly July 4th is approaching!
Also, my good blogging buddy, Pat, sent me a nice award this week. I know that part of the award is that I need to forward it on. I am so grateful to all of you for giving me inspiration, and positive feedback. I just cannot choose who to share it with. So! If you like it, just grab it, and post it, and enjoy! Pat said that I got it for all of my nice comments, and because I have 'attitude'! Tee hee - she knows me all too well!!!
~Life is short - open your presents early!
