I got my DCWV Stacks!!

Hello again all!! Fed Ex stopped by today to drop off the 3 paper stacks I won from DCWV Diary! Wow!! They are beautiful!!! Trust me when I tell you that when they hit the market you need to check them out!!! Sooooo, I decided that I had to create something with one of them. I knew I had to make it relatively simple since I'm supposed to be taking it easy, so this is what I came up with. I used a sheet from the Collage Musings stack to make a card for the Terrific Tuesday Challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps. The challenge was to create something from the Stand & Salute cartridge. I know it's almost the 4th of July, but I wanted to create something that wasn't all red, white, and blue, and this paper just caught my eye. All the sayings on them reminded me that without our freedom we wouldn't be able to enjoy any of the things mentioned. So, here's the recipe for my card:

Recollection Cardstock
DCWV Pattern Paper
Stand & Salute Cricut Cartridge
Scrappy Moms Sentiment Stamp
Stampin' Up Ink and Paper Punch
Color box Chalk Ink
Stazon Ink to recolor brads
Making Memories Star Brads

It was so nice to get in my room and play for awhile. Makes you appreciate it your health when things come up and you can't do what you are used to. Well, I hope you like my card and as always, thanks for stopping by!
