Patriotic Puppy

Coffee of the Day - Irish Cream

Hooray! I was able to get into my computer files and get crafty today!!! you can't begin to imagine just how happy that makes me! :)  while not among the major things in life to get worked up about, I still wasn't too excited to lose all of my files if I wasn't able to get the files retrieved from the external hard drive....

so on to my card ~

I used this cutey Patriotic Puppy image along with the Declaration of Independence saying, both from Eureka Stamps. (although I used the digi versions) most of the papers are from the Authentique Pride collection. I must say that Authentique has the very coolest patriotic papers, and I frequently use all of them together. I hoard what I do have like a miser. a new collection is coming out soon, so I am very excited about that! :)

the sentiment portion was first sponged and then sprayed with 2 shades of glimmer mist. as you can see, I made a shaker card out of it. a bit of re-purposed packaging works perfectly as the shaker top! the neat wooden bark star at the top comes from Live and Love Crafts. (psssst..... they have a sale going on right now!!!) the denim belt loop is just a fun bit because nothing personifies the spirit of America like a pair of blue jeans! :)

to those of you here in the States, have a safe Memorial Day weekend. I hope to be back tomorrow with another project to share. see you then! :)
