The Little Marine


This is for the inspiration challenge over at Pals Paper Arts.......what a beautiful fireworks display!!! Of course, it made me think of the 4th of July, and stars, stripes......and the good ole red, white, and blue. This image is from Stamping Boutique and was a free digi. I'm hoping I colored the little Marine correctly. My husband is a former Marine and he said it looked fine.

If you celebrate the 4th of July, please have a safe and fun day.


Weather Update: As I said we weren't in the path of hurricane Alex - and all we got was a little wind and of course, alot of rain. In fact, I think we're suppose to have rain all the way through the weekend. But everything is good around here. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts.


Thanks for stopping by.................

Stars, stripes, a flag, a marine and red, white & blue color scheme - every element of a very patriotic card. Cute.

Good that the weather didn't end up being a problem. If you have too much rain though, send it up this way. We haven't had rain in at least 10 days and the next 10 days are supposed to be dry too.
