The cookout is over and we finally got everything cleaned up and put away. I just had to make a card for the Featured Stamper on Split Coast before I collapsed on the sofa! Sandra (B-gin-er) has a wonderful gallery of cards to look through - I finally chose this GI Jon Card to case.
I changed the colors, used a twill ribbon for the sentiment rather than a panel, used a bigger star and added my son's name to it. I used my new Jenome Sewing machine (which is on sale!) to do the stitching.
My son was in the Army so I always like to make cards for him using military theme stamps. This Riley is just so cute! My son's b'day isn't until September so now I'm ahead of the game - whoo hoo!
Ok - now I'm off to that sofa to collapse!
