TSB's July Patriotic Blog Hop!

Welcome to The Stamping Boutique's
July Blog Hop!


You should have reached my blog from Miranda's blog. If not, please start at the beginning with The Stamping Boutique's Challenge Blog! I wouldn't want you to miss a single, gorgeous creation!!!

The Design Team was given two images to work with, and I chose to make a card with this lovely Bald Eagle digi stamp. You can get your own copy HERE! I hope you'll feel encouraged and inspired to play along!!! Be sure to check the Challenge Blog for more details on what prizes Tracey is offering for this Hop!

My card:
My son Shane has just started Basic Training with the US Army at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. This will be his first card from me while there!

You can see the silver embossing better.

I love our flag and our country!!!

With matching envelope too, of course!

I'm so glad you popped in to see my card. Your next stop is with the ever crazy talented Collette!! I'm so glad I don't have to post after her because her cards are just A-MAZ-ING!!! Enjoy!!!
