Inspiration Monday-Red, White & Blue (or your Nation's colors)

Happy Monday y'all! Hard to believe it's already July!!! And man, did the weekend fly by way too fast, right?! We had a busy weekend going through things and staging the house in preparation of putting it on the market. We have 1 1/2 months to try and sell it and buy a new one. Worse case scenario is we live in temp housing provided by the company until we find a home. But it would be nice to find something we all love soon! Keep us in your prayers if you could!!

This is a busy week for us also. The hubby and I will be celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary on July 3rd! :) It definitely doesn't feel like 13 years! I think he's the most amazing man and I'm so blessed to have him as my husband!!! He gets me and loves me for me (faults and all)....and that's all that matters! :)

We'll also be celebrating the 4th of July, Independence Day! I want to take this opportunity to thank all the men and women who fight to protect us and our country every day! At times I feel like we are losing some of our freedoms that so many have fought to protect. Only time will tell, but I continue to pray and hope that those in power remember what makes this country so special.....our many FREEDOMS and our right to choose what's best for us and our families.

Now onto the La-La Land Crafts Challenge this week:

Red, White & Blue

To celebrate Independence Day, I made this special card using Saluting Marci!! I love her!! She reminds me of so many of my military friends....the wives who support their husbands and hold down the fort when the hubby gets deployed.

Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11
Hair: E49, E47, E34
Red: R35, R37
Blue: B21, B23, B24
Dogtags/Boots: C7, C5, C3

I used random dps from my stash. To give it some bling, I added stickes on Marci's shirt & shorts and also along the edges of the cardstock.

In the corners, I used the LLLC Filigree Corner Die and then added Recollection Pearls. The awesome sentiment is called "God Bless the USA" and is from Gourmet Rubber Stamps. The ribbon is from Michaels and I tied a double loop bow with my Bow Easy (LOVE THIS TOOL)!!

I raised the sentiment and Marci on pop-dots.

Now don't forget you can play along with us every week by uploading your creations to the Customer Gallery. If you haven't checked out the list of retiring LLLC stamps, then you'll definitely want to head on over to the LLLC Store and grab them while you can!!

Have a great week and I hope you leave me a comment so I know you stopped by.
