Happy Memorial Day!!

Can it be that May 2011 is ending; and ending with a Red, White and Blue bang!!!   Where have the last 5 months gone???  It’s official that Summer will soon be here and it’s time to start planning all those fun vacation trips with family and friends.  For some school kids, school is just about over and it’s down to counting the days/hours/minutes.

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a Memorial Day theme.  So I’m sure the design team will have a wonderful assortment of cards and ideas to help you create some great projects for this holiday.  Here are cards that I created using an old favorite stamp that was created in 2001.  It was a Special Edition “God Bless America” stamp created in remembrance of the September 11, 2001 tragedies in the USA.  

Soon Stampin’Up! will be releasing their Retired list of stamps.  So I decided that I would use some very old stamps, wheels, ribbon,  accessories, and some colors that have been retired (Brilliant Blue cardstock and Classic ink).  So here are my cards to share with you.
