Patriotic Season of Friendship

After spending almost two hours in line this morning (and getting there at 6:30 AM so I could vote with my husband and son), I was inspired to come home and create this card.  Thank you to all of you who go out and brave the LONG lines to vote today.  We are blessed to live in a country where our voice is heard!

My Season of Friendship Card Kit purchasers will be happy that here is another sample using the Season of Friendship stamp set!  I stamped the tree in Basic Black on Whisper White, towards the right edge.  Then I added three 1/4" strips of Real Red cardstock along the left side.  I punched the stars with the Small Star punch from Pacific Point and adhered them with mini glue dots to the limbs of the tree.  I stamped the words Thank You from Family Accessories in Basic Black on Whisper White and punched with the small oval punch.  Then a border of Pacific Point with the Large Oval.  I punched a small hole next to the bottom of the tree and wrapped the 5/8 Real Red ribbon around and thru the hole to tie it. I’m happy that it turned out how I pictured it in my head!

Today I am spending the day packing up my craft items to take to the weekend stamping retreat.  I have a couple girlfriends coming into town Wednesday evening to spend the night and visit…then we leave right after lunch on Thursday to go to the retreat!  Woohoo!  We’ve been planning this so long, I can’t believe it is finally here.  There are about 50 ladies going…should be a great time!  It is held twice a year and I’ve been going since it started in 2005.  I’m working on getting some posts ready to publish while I’m gone.  Hopefully I won’t run into any server issues like last time!

Connie, I LOVE this card. I’m heading out to vote this afternoon after DD gets home from school. If she goes with me, she gets extra credit in her World History class.

Another great one, Connie. I ordered Season of Friendship after I saw you Pumpkinman card. Now I’ll be able to make this beauty, too! Yeah!
