4th of July and The Angel Company

Good almost afternoon! I've got a late start today, sorry...

Well, anyone wanna see some 4th of July cards? I'm going to jump right in since I'm late today. Lucky you, no blah blah blah *Ü* I wonder sometimes if my babble scares you away or not? But if I babble too much you can just scroll down...

I've been kinda bad about making cards this year. It seems that I am slacking or something. I would of normally had all my holiday cards made and in envelopes and address ready to go out this week ~ but of course I'm behind. I have no idea either what's got to me. OH! Yes I do. It's the darn digital scrapping. That's got to be it. I will try to be better, promise.

This next card is one of my 4th of July cards that I've made. I used the TAC set called Auld Lang Syne. Of course I never understood why they named it that ~ isn't that for New Years? Well I guess you could use the fireworks for New Years Eve...

The base card is Pacific Point that is layered with Riding Hood Red and DP from The Paper Studio. I sponged some Real Red ink around the DP layer to give it a little antique look. I then stamped the images on to white cs then used my markers to color them in. Of course then I got this bright idea to frame in the image panel so I cut out a rectangle in Riding Hood Red with my Labels Large nesties set. I then took my Marvy punch and punched the oval out of the center and then placed the image panel behind it. I added some star brads to each corner of the panel for a little more flair. I added stickles to the fireworks because those should be sparkly. Then lastly I took another flag image that I stamped and colored and added it to the top of the image panel a little on the outside with pop dots for dimension. I stamped God Bless America from TAC's Flag Quilt set with Real Red ink, cut that out and adhered it to a scrap of Riding Hood Red and added it on the outside panel. So, wadda ya think?

Here we go on to the next hard. I used some very old stamps for this card. But I did find a couple of them on line, I'll give you the links.
I first stamped the liberty bell from Print Works and also another for a mask. I masked it off and stamped the stars in the background with YoYo Yellow ink. I then stamped the Rockets from Stampouri. I colored in the bell with my watercolor crayons and the blue of the rockets. I then colored the rest of the rockets with my Real Red marker. I sponged some Real Red ink around that panel and layered it on to a piece of Riding Hood Red cs. The base card is Pacific Point that I layered with Riding Hood Red and some DP from Reminisce. The sentiment I had that was an UM piece of rubber and I colored with Real Red and Brilliant Blue inks and cut out to layer on a piece of Riding Hood Red scrap. I cut the ends to look like a piece of ribbon and adhered it to the card with pop dots and I was complete.

I'm going to try to post another digi page this afternoon ~ but I won't promise.

Mom is going in for surgery on her eye this Thursday so I would appreciate any and all your prayers if you would. They say that it is routine and she wont be asleep because she cant take the anesthesia but it's still kinda scary. I don't know all of the technical terms, I believe it is something to do with cataracts and glaucoma ~ but I do know that they are replacing a lens. But I would appreciate any and all prayers.

Have a great afternoon everyone!!
