A Little Bit Country

Hello!  Happy Memorial Day to those of us in the United States!  Before I start my post today I just want to thank all of those men and women who chose to defend our country to allow us to keep our rights and continue to live in a free country.  The sacrifices they made affected so many people, most of who will never have known the person individually.  So today, I just want to thank them all for their choice and sacrifice.


My post today uses a Sarah Kay image, A Little Bit Country.  Okay, I'm typing up my blog at the moment and I HATE it!  Why, I am so droll, I mean no life or inspiration in my posts at all.  Oh my gosh, I wish I could just step outside my little box and type freely and easily.  I know then my posts would sound that way, but lets face it, they don't, ugh!  This summer my goal is to try and lighten up a little bit, really.  Life is too short to be so serious all the time or to sound so BORING!  I am so sorry if you are reading this, I am going to more lighthearted  and less droll from now on!  Phew, I feel better now, thanks for letting me get that off my chest.


As I was going to say earlier, my stamp comes from 7 Kids College Fund.  I made this card for my wedding anniversary, which is June 26.  We will have been married for 8 years.  I know, some of you think we are just babies, but it sure is funny how the time flies.  It seems like it just happened yesterday!


Now, before I post my project pictures I just have to post this one "interrupted" by my cat, Addy.  She just always has to be in the way and before you know it as I am snapping my picture this little black head gets in my way.  Too funny, the hubby and I had a good laugh over this one.  And no close up picture this time, she broke my concentration and I forgot to take one.  You get a nice fuzzy picture of her head instead.


There she is, nose right in the camera.  She stuck her face in there just as I was snapping the picture.  So, here you go, her five minutes of fame.


Materials Used for my Project:
Copic Markers - E37, E35, E34, E31, B28, B26, B24, B21, YR24, YR23, YR21, YR20, C9, C7, C5 C3, C1

Here's a look at the inside of the card.  The verse is from the Verve Stamp Set, Beautiful You.


I made my card using a sketch from the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog.  Here's their sketch for this week.
