As a stay at home mom, between cooking cleaning teaching and not having a moment to blink I needed a quiet corner to sneak away to and that corner just happens to be full of DP, copic markers, and stamps, welcome to my little corner!

Welcome Home Heroes
Hey guys! As we come to the end of July most if not all of that patriotic spirit present early on in the month is long gone and packed away till next year. However we here at Ft. Drum have something more to celebrate and that's the home coming of the Mountain Division 3rd Brigade. In honor of this heartwarming reunion I thought I would make a center step card for the SOG Stars and Stripes Facebook challenge and also link up for the July Linky party at the Some Odd Girl Blog.
SOG Birthday Mae
I decided to use birthday Mae and repurpose her by coloring her red white and blue. I love finding other uses for stamps when they are holiday/season specific, it gives me more use out of my stamps. The DP used is from Bo Bunny Anthem pad and the dies are memory box precious stars, paper smooch stars and spellbinders lacy ovals and ovals large embossed with a stars embossing folder inked with antique linen distress ink. I'm seriously excited for those families being reunited with their soldiers and can't wait till they're all home safe! I plan to make a few more and donate them to be given to those families and returning soldiers. It's getting kind of late here so I'll call it a night but remember, it's not too late to link up a project for July! Let's see some Stars and Stripes from you guys too!
