Here for You Card

Happy Independence Day! Take a few minutes out of the day to remember why we are having barbecues, watching parades, and lighting up fireworks... Thank You especially to all the men and women serving our country, fighting for and protecting the freedom that we too often take for granted.

I am enjoying this holiday weekend with my family in Michigan and yesterday, Mom and I enjoyed some stamping time! We were very productive and had fun playing with some of the new stamp sets and In Colors. I'll be sharing them with you over the next week, but first, I have a card for Stacey's Jewelry Color Inspiration #43.

I just got this new Friends 24-7 card, I just had to use it straight away! I was a little stumped by Yo Yo Yellow (again...really!?), but I ended up watercoloring the background with it. Not too bad! I do love Pink Pirouette and Kiwi Kiss (2009 In Colors) and will miss them now that they are officially retired.

Supplies: Friends 24-7, Pink Pirouette ink & cardstock, Kiwi Kiss ink & cardstock, Very Vanilla cardstock, Basic Gray ink pad, Yo Yo Yellow ink pad, Aqua Painter, Basic Black marker, Color Spritzer Tool
