Have a Star Spangled Day!

I didn't have any stamping time again yesterday, so I'll show you a card I did last week. I finally got my hands on some of those adorable Hero Arts bird stamps and this was what happened when I just sat down to "play" with my new stamps and paper. The paper is from the Carnival line by Crate Paper. The bird stamp and the sentiment are from Hero Arts. The circles are all cut with the Creative Memories Circle Cutting System and I added doodles and dots with a white gel pen and a black marker. Accents are some Offray Kendra ribbon, a prima, an orange rhinestone sticker and Stickles.
A great big Happy 4th of July to all my American readers (and a belated Canada Day wish to all you Canadians)! Last night I was playing a game called Apples to Apples with family. The premise of the game is to pick a card from your hand that has a word that most relates to the word on the card the judge places in the center of the table. Then the judge reads all the cards and picks the one he/she thinks is best. It's a really fun game. Anyway, the card in the middle said Expensive and the card I chose to lay down was Freedom. I just started thinking about all the lives that have been lost for the freedoms I enjoy everyday... like the freedom of speech so I can write this very blog post. So just wanted to say hats off to all the men and women who have sacrificed so much to keep that freedom alive and kicking!

I'm sure there will probably be a winner today, since there are so many numbers and so many of you were so close. If you think you've got an X or Blackout, please include the last number you filled in on your card when you post to claim your Bingo. The winner is decided by the order the numbers are called so therefore an X completed with O62 would beat out an X completed with a B2. Good luck and have a wonderful 4th!


  1. YEAH!!! I have a bingo, with I26, and it's the X. I know you probably have more people with bingo's, but it's worth a try! lol T

  15. Well no bingo here - still lacking 2 numbers. Looks like a number of you made it, though.

    Julee, what a darling card. I keep wishing some of those birdies would fly to my house and build a nest here. Maybe someday.

  16. Adorable card! That birdie is just so cute!

    congrats on the bingo...whew! I still wasn't close!

  17. Congratulations to the winners. This round seemed to never end. I was always one number away! I'm having alot of fun. Thanks for doing this.
    Happy Fourth of July.

  18. Congratulations Bingo Winner (whoever you are!). I just love that bird stamp (set) but can't find it anywhere! I love your card!

  19. Hi Julee,
    I have an "x" with the last number being O68. It has been torturous fun!!

  20. congratulations bingo winner! here's another card - I just can't stop myself

    pretty flowers in vase

  21. I love your card (those birds are just too cute).

  22. I just want to say, it does not matter if your cards are a year old, or more, they are always beautiful. Hope you had a great Fourth. We sure did even if it did rain most of the day. I think everyday is a good day.

  23. This is a really great card. I was just trying to work up an idea today for an ATC with one of these birdies in a circle. The ladies in the swap make such great projects that I try to give it a little extra thought.

  24. Girl you totally rock. I check your site daily and just adore your work.


Thanks so much for taking the time to brighten my day with a comment! I love hearing from you.
