2 cards for you today


My first card for you today is the one I made for the Inspiration Challenge yesterday.  I used the newly released stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co called "What a Scream".  My inspiration was a Steiff black cat from Williams Sonoma. It's very simple, but I really like he way it turned out.

Stamps:  What a Scream
Paper:  Speedy Cat Black Linen, grey, MAMBI Halloween paper stack
Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black
Misc:  Enamel dots

My second card is a very special card that I made yesterday.  There is a group called "Honor Flight Network" that flies WWII & Korean veterans to Washington DC to see their memorials at no cost to them.  They do an old fashioned mail call like they did back in the war days.  I don't know who will receive this card, but I hope they feel special when they receive it!  We owe these men & women our freedom today, and it was the least I could do.  The sentiment on the inside says "We thank those who have made our country strong.  Thank you for your service."  

Stamps:  Be Proud, USA Heroes (sentiment)
Paper:  Snow Storm Smooth, Cherry Slush by MFP, Bo Bunny "Liberty" Collection
Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black
Misc:  ribbon, flag charm, Spectrum Noir Pens

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Happy Stamping!
Patty & Winnie
