Sooooo long!

Wow, it's been so long since I blogged!
It's actually been a long time since I made a card!

Ever have your mojo just up and leave?  I think that's
what happened mine.

I was at a stamp show the other weekend and picked up some new
stamps in hopes of bringing the mojo back to life.  I used 2 of those
stamps on this card I just made.  They are both from
Our Daily Bread - Soldier and Old Flag.

I made this for the challenge over at

The challenge was to make something CAS with
an element that goes off the edge.

This card was definitely an easy one!

Some of you reading this may know that my son recently
joined the US Marines, and I'm so proud of him!  When I
saw these stamps, I had to get them.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Soldier and Old Flag
Paper: Rustic White, Night of Navy

This is fabulous, Julie! Love the burlap and the subtle image is fabulous as is the flag in the BG. I think the new goodies worked :)
