Welcome to the Oh, Say can you See Blog Hop!

I'm so glad you could join the SNR Card Universe Blog Hop!


Grab your cup of coffee, glass of tea or bottle of water and relax by viewing the last half of the blog hop. If you are at my blog you are less than half way through the 93 blogs that have joined in this wonderful Holiday treat of Red, White, and Blue!


If you came from Tenia's blog you are on the right track! If you didn't you may want to hop to go back to the first blog on the hop which is: here and start at the beginning.


My first card is created using GinaK Designs StampTV kit flower barrel stamp:


The paper is a digital download from StampTV freebie's.

Next is a darling little Patriotic Girl from KLM Digital Designs.





Colored with copic markers, which is my weapon of choice usually. There is also a Patriotic Boy with a watermelon and a Patriotic Dog that will be featured on my Artful Sentiments Copic Challenge this week.

I have many styles that I love so being a Guest DT member for Artistic Outpost is so much fun for me. I love vintage, maybe because I remember it all too well :)



The 4th of July collage was created using Artistic Outpost stamp plates Hero and She-roes. I printed a music score of the Star Spangled Banner off the internet(it was free) and used that as the base for my collage. I just love the American flags on the lower right corner from the Hero stamp plate.



My final project is from Theresa Momber's newest stamp set available at GinaK Designs and is called Happy Camper. It isn't Red,White, and Blue but it to me is the epitomy of America the Beautiful. "From the Mountains"... God Bless America...My Home Sweet Home!


Next on the hop is Sheri Willshire be sure to stop by visit. Thanks for stopping by and have a safe and happy 4th of July!!!
