La-La Land Crafts Salutes Your Country!!

Today the La-La Land Crafts Design Team wants to celebrate your country!  Our inspiration for this week is to use the colors that represent your country in your design!!  You can see all the inspiration on the La-La Land Crafts Blog

Today I used Marci with Tulip for my card. I LOVE red and white tulips so this was just the perfect image to help represent the USA colors!

I started with Pure Luxury Red Hot card stock for my base and added a layer of In the Navy.  Some DP I found in my stash as well.  My image was stamped on White and colored with Copic markers.  I used my Oval Nestabilites to cut her out before mounting her with Pop Dots.  Ohhh and what about those awesome filigree corner dies??? I LOVE these!!!  If you haven't seen the dies over at La-La Land, you must go look.  I think I have all but maybe two that I KNOW I'll be ordering as well.  Hee

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Independence Day celebration.  I had a card to post but got lost in making a wedding guest book that I needed to have done by today and totally forgot to add it to my blog.  But... I'll throw it up here tomorrow since it is part of the Stamp TV Chat Challenge this week.

My son and I are taking a trip to the eastern side of Iowa.  Doing a little shopping and site seeing.  We rarely get to do a "trip" alone together and so we decided to take advantage of some "alone time" before my daughter arrives back home Sunday from spending a week and a half with Grandma and Grandpa at the Lake.  Actually, she doesn't know it, but we are heading down Saturday to spend the night and pick her up!!  It was the first time she'd been away from home ever for any length of time.  It's been kind of hard for her... she's pretty homesick.  And this summer was the first time she'd EVER stay over night at a friend's house.  She's just pretty much been attached to my hip since she was born.  So... it was good she gave it a go even though, as she says, she's "tired of the drama". LOL  Seems grandpa yelled at her for "butt-dialing" him a couple times the other day.  LOL  Personally, this mom misses her just as much but know I have to let her experience these things so she can be as independent as her mommy.  Hee Hee

So, I'm off to bed so I can rise early and shop shop shop!!!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!!  *HUGS*
