Tuesday R/W/B + CTMH Workshop 7/1/14

This week I am having my own personal July 4th Celebration.  I'm making all my cards Red, White and Blue and putting them in the box to send to Operation Write Home.  

Once upon a time, I stamped this image and didn't use it.  It was buried in a pile of stuff I recently went through.  Now there's one less thing on that pile.  To complete the card I've used a corner punch, oval punch, corner rounder, ribbon, baker's twine, brads, red glitter gel, light blue Prismacolor marker, and a CTMH sentiment.

I am entering this card in the following:
Cards Galore Encore Challenge - Use a stamp or digi stamp

I was enormously happy to see Gail's smiling face when I got to Joyce's card workshop this afternoon.  Welcome back, Gail!

Here are the cards we made today using Close to My Heart products:

That's it for today.  I just came across a really neat sketch I want to try.  Maybe I can get a card done before it's time for dinner.

Oh, that's right.  There sits the checkbook.  I was going to balance the bank statement when I got home this afternoon.

Not anymore!
