God Bless You Card Set

Hello & Happy Sunday!

Hope your all enjoying the weekend!
Yesterday was beautiful and we spent the day in Lancaster County with some friends.
While my intent was to do some supply shopping at L&L Stamps in Ephrata, PA.,I found out quickly she was closed once we got there. Then we headed off for some lunch at a cafe at Shady Maple which was pretty darn good! Plus we ate with friends which made it all the more special!
After lunch we headed to the Flower & Craft Warehouse and to my surprise I found some amazing things in the Scrapbooking area! Since I was bummed that L&L was closed, the Flower & Craft Warehouse made up for my sadness! Needless to say my friend, Mary Anne & I had a wonderful time shopping & chatting and ended our day with a hug before we both headed home with full bellies and a bag of fun stamping goodies! This hobby has brought so many wonderful stamping friends into my life over the years and it's always fun to meet up with them!

So today I have a set of cards made for my really great customer who ordered cards for her grandson. She writes to him on a regular basis while he is stationed in Georgia and requested a pack of cards with the American flag on it and God Bless You. I always try my best to fulfill her requests.

This set was a bit of a toughie and I hope she will like these as it's a bit different than what she asked for. She wanted a certain paper which I am out of and she wanted me to use the God Bless America stamp that Stampin Up brought out in 2001 when the Trade Towers in New York City came down. I instead used a different American flag stamp from the Star Spangled Banner (retired) set. There are words on this particular stamp so I just used my Stampin Write Markers to ink up what I wanted, stamped it and cut just the flag out. My sentiment panel is stamped with God Bless You which comes from the Crosses of Hope (retired) set and then it was cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. My piece of patterned paper is from Pebbles and is diecut with the Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangle Dies. Lastly I attached my flag with Mini Dimensionals and attached the star with a glue dot. I hope she will like these. I love the patterned paper and the Red, White & Blue!

I'm a sucker for red, white and blue cards, so these float my boat big-time! I love the little mini flag in the circle and the little stars on the background are so patriotic with the red flag! I'm glad you had a good time yesterday and hopefully the next time I can manage to join you too! Have a great week ahead and have fun stamping on a rainy day tomorrow :)

Oh, and PS... we had a great time also! The weather and friendship shared could not have been better! I can not wait to use the turkeys we bought and I may have to go back and get enough for my co-workers if I come up with a plan. It was a great day!
