HERE IT IS - MONDAY AGAIN

Good Monday morning everyone! I am off to my monthly scrapbook club - we meet the second Monday of every month at the LSS (read, 45 min one way for me!) from 10-5. This is a by-invitation group and I was asked two months ago to join but this will be the first time I have actually gotten to go! I am looking forward to it although I have stamping projects to do and probably won't get to my scrappin' - oh well! I love to stamp too *wink* So, today I want to share with you the card I made for the Sheetload of cards sketch challenge....of course, after I was done, I went back to the site and realized that I was supposed to use $1 stamps...ugggghhhhh!!! So, this one will use the sketch but I won't post it there since I did not follow the directions - LOL! Oh well, maybe I can make another one! I used the Free and the Brave set - I just love it! And, even though it has a western theme, I used the dp from the Western Sky paper pack because I love the stars and thought they were great for this project! I am trying to get a bunch of cards done to send overseas and I am planning a Cards for the Troops day that I think this set will be great for! So, I will leave you with the recipe and a reminder to check out my sketch and post a link on that post so I can see your creations! Have a wonderful day!
