STAMP ON!!!

Happy 4th!!

I usually don't put cards with retired stamps on it - but this was too cute not to share....I did use the current Independence Day set for most of the card; Really red, Night of Navy and Whisper White paper and ink, white EP, white grosgrain ribbon. and a silver gel pen for doodling...The stamp that is retired is the other side of the card where it says God Bless America. It was issued as a memorial type stamp for 9-11 in 2001, and I really like it, and really wanted to use it despite its retired-ed-ness . YKWIM? Anyhoo, I was inspired by a card I saw in a recent craft mag - I think it may have been Cards or Card Making or some such thing - and as you can tell - these two posts are at 3:30 am (WHAT I am doing awake I have no idea!! but its summer!! hehehehe) so I am lucky I even remember it WAS a magazine.....ok - ok - here is the card - I need to make a passel to give to my gal pals at a shin-dig Friday - so girls - DON"T LOOK!!! So I gotta get busy tomorrow....but just in case.... MERRY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!! or HAPPY FOURTH!!!! (can't you just hear those fireworks....oh - that's my neighbors...tee hee!!!) TTFN!!

Wow, great interactive card and I agree that sometimes you just have to use a retired stamp every now and then. That's a good one.

Blessings!
