Card-a-Copia: Yuck, It's Almost the Fourth!

Of all the holidays, the one I dislike the most is the Fourth of July. It has turned into a beer-guzzling excuse to blow things up and be obnoxious. If only most of the people who spend their hard-earned money on fireworks could tell the story of the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812, I'd put up with the rest of the Independence Day crap; but no, your typical American can't manage that. Arrgghh!

On the other hand, Independence Day is a good excuse to make cards. Here's my patriotic card for this year...coming to a mailbox near some of you soon!

Stamps: star (Stampin' Up!)
Papers: Whisper White (Stampin' Up!), stars (My Minds Eye), brown ("Homeroom Reinforcements," The Paper Company)
Inks: Basic Brown (Stampin' Up!)
Misc.: star punch (Martha Stewart); ribbon (unknown), brads (Stampin' Up!), sentiment (computer-generated Jane Austin font), stick pin (Heidi Swapp) sponge


Thanks for stopping by!
