Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day! I am sitting here kinda lonely today while my hubby works. I hope that your day is more exciting than mine!

I have been so busy this week! Here are all of the cards I was going to show you this week - all in one post.

The first card is one that I have been meaning to make for a long time. I have had Fairy Birthday from TAC for ages. The little flag banner is one of the fun images in the set. Banners are SO trendy right now. Here is my TAC take on a HUGE stamping trend. What do you think? I stamped the flag banner and sentiment, from TAC Thinking Of You, in Memento Rich Cocoa. The paper and cardstock are from a scrapbook kit I had in my garage. Notice the subtle frame around the focal image? That stamp is from Background Soup. I love Background Soup, it's the perfect stamp set for cards that need a little something.

Next card is also made with paper and cardstock from that long forgotten scrapbook kit that was in my garage. The pattern papers are American Crafts and the cardstock is Bazzill. Isn't that bird fun? I stamped him in Aloe Vera VersaMagic ink on my image panel. Then I stamped again with Jumbo Java on a scrap of white. I cut just the bird out of the image and popped it up over the original Aloe Vera image. All the brads and ribbons were also a part that kit too! What a find!

The last card also features images from TAC's Fall Harvest and papers from that same scrapbook kit. The little bandit bird is stamped twice and the body is popped up. I used Ordinary Greetings, my favorite TAC sentiment stamp set of all time for the "You make a difference!" sentiment. The flower is a fabric Bitty Bloom and the button came from Lemonade Buttons and Blooms.

I am featuring stamp sets from TAC Final Farewell list in this post. Ordinary Greetings, Fall Harvest, and Fairy Birthday are all on sale right now for 30% off. If you want to grab any of these great sets, at a discount, before they are gone be sure to email or call me.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a happy holiday weekend.

OH! For anyone keeping track of my card a day in the month of May progress, I am at 21 cards so far. I only have a day and a half to do the other 10. I sure that I am not going to make it. :( I have had so much fun sending cards and letting people know I care.

Hubby was home and it was still a boring day - plus no time to craft!

You can't stop on sending your cards! It has been so much fun for me, that I'm going to try to keep it up. Not a card a day, but cards to those who are brought to mind!

Great projects. Love the long forgotten papers...I hope to spend the summer digging into my HUGE stack!!! Like you, I took a day to sit around and craft. I'm working on Seminar trades as I'm typing this. Just fun to do nothing....except stamp!
