  3. Hi Kim! Happy 4th! Staying home sounds good to me! Hurricane Arthur blew through here last night with heavy rains and wind - and we're having scattered thunder showers all day today - so it's a good day to stay in and stamp!! Love your Miss Liberty card - the fireworks look great above her - and love the framed sentiment! and your floral cluster is gorgeous in the purple!

  17. I do like that Statue of Liberty stamps and all that firework, and the colors give this card the perfect patriotic feel.
    Your second card is absolutely stunning. Firstly I love the color, second I love the image. I'm not sure if the stamp comes like this or if you've combined several stamps and masking, but whatever the answer it looks fantastic!

  20. I will be calling my SU lady first thing tomorrow cuz this Blackberry ink is GORGEOUS! It looks like someone played around with some burgundy & purple ink and came up with this result! Great choice of stamps that do such a fabulous job of showcasing 'the ink'.

    Great 4th of July card - love the sprinkle of stars and the two peaks of red border which really showcase the image!

  26. Hope you and your family had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! Another couple of brilliant cards. I love your first card, its very clean but powerful with those amazing dies and stamps. Was just telling my children the other day that I was lucky enough to visit the Statue of Liberty when you could still travel up to her crown. The view was stunning!! And that Blackberry colour in your second card is so luscious. All of those flowers stamps go so well together and really like the cute little one down in the corner (as if she has escaped the pack...). I'm thinking that maybe your on Summer Holidays now? If so, enjoy yourself and I hope the sun keeps shining!
