I Moose You

Hope everyone is having a wonderful start to your weekend!! Today is a good day to be stamping here in Indiana - it's "slushing" outside - a gross mix of snow and rain - so I am curled up in my studio stamping and longing for warmer Spring days! I am playing catch up on some challenges today - this is a card I made this morning for yesterday's Hanna Stamps challenge - this week's challenge is to use metal on your card - you can view the challenge here. I used GI Jon Riley for my card - I cut him down on a small rectangle and rounded off the corner to make it look like a dog tag. I did the same with a piece of silver metallic cardstock from the DCWV Metallic Stack. I punched a hole in them and then added a piece of metal ball chain to finish off the dog tag look. The American flag was pieced together with 2 pieces of patterned paper from an old DCWV Summer Stack from JoAnn's. I added a sentiment from the "Things Riley Would Say" set and a few metal star brads. Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you'll pop over to the Hanna forum over on SCS and play with us this week!!

I absolutely LOVE this card. It's probably the best card I've ever seen on any blog. My husband deployed this morning for 5 months so this card is so fitting. It really made me smile. Thank you so much for your amazing creations.
