Thinking of you

Look at the fabulous card I put together from my Daisy D scraps and Unity stamp. I used a combination of Memento inks for my stamping and than did some distressing on the sides of the card. I used some 2 way tape and did a little accordion folding for my ribbon.

"Ideas, Tips and Techniques"

Ever wonder how in the world can I keep up with everything that I see or hear when I am surfing the web. Well, I made this journal so I would be able to keep all Ideas, Tips and Techniques in it. I always have it in reach and have made tabs so it is easy to locate which section I would like to lookor write in.
I made my Journal with Jillibean Soup Eggdrop papers, fussy cut some little umbrella from one of the pieces of paper and gave them dimension with some pop dots, buttons and strings. I hand drew the handle for my umbrellas using a Zig Marker and add some small gingham ribbon to them. Always keep something with you to write and sketch in and it never hurts to make it pretty with paper.

"Let Freedom Ring"

Let's never forget our freedom and let it ring this Fourth of July.
Let us celebrate through family, friends, and always remember our freedom.

Oh, say,can you see, by the dawn's early light,What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming? And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes, What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep, As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses? Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,I n full glory reflected, now shines on the stream: 'Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Let's remember our brave that won't be here this Fourth of July to keep us free.
Let's lift them up in prayer for God's soveriegn protection and for nation and especially for our leaders.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion A home and a country should leave us no more? Their blood has wash'd out their foul footsteps' pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave: And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand, Between their lov'd homes and the war's desolation; Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation! Then conquer we must, when our cause is just, And this be our motto: "In God is our trust"And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Let's remember the words of the National Anthem and enjoy our Fourth of July.
