Liberty for All

I just sold this set this past week to someone who has been looking for it for a long time. I was very undecided whether or not I wanted to let it go. But, I hadn't used it for a couple years, so I decided to sell it so someone else could get some joy from using it.

Sometimes I take cards that I've received in swaps that I especially like and put them with the sets when they retire. This gives me some ideas if I ever pull out that set to use. So, this collage card with the Statue of Liberty was in the case with the set. There is no name on the back, so I'm not really sure who made it (maybe someone on Creative Stamping Friends??) If it is you, let me know...I'd like to give you credit.

The second one I decided to make up quickly to include with the set. I used Ann Clemmer's creative background, but paired it with the Eagle stamp from this set instead of the stars that she used. I also changed up the colors to Night of Navy on Whisper White, instead of Craft White on Night of Navy. I loved how hers looked and I think this turned out pretty nice, too! The larger star is from Sweet Celebrations set and the swirl from Stitched Exotics.

I just want to take the opportunity to thank the men and women who defend our Country and make it a great place to live. Your sacrifices humble me. And, to those family members who are left behind, I can't imagine how hard it is, but I'm very thankful to you, too.

Have a Blessed Memorial Day!
