H{ippity} Hop Monday!

H{ippity} Hop Monday is here & in the US it's Memorial Day. Please click HERE to look at my OWH Blog hop post in honor of today. I also have some, as my daughter would say, delisioso blog candy to give away! (too much Dora in our house. LOL)

For my 1st card today, I wanted to make one more card in honor of Memorial Day & all our troops serving in the military. I kept it simple, just stamping a background in red & blue with 2 of the flower stamps available in the Now & Always set. Then I stamped the sentiment with gold & heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I think it makes it pop. It says "May you never forget what is worth remembering" I love that.

I just couldn't stop at one card today - these stamps are so fabulous, I just want to keep on stamping! LOL For my 2nd card, I used the sentiment set Delightful Little Things. This set is awesome with so many different sentiments/word art as focal pieces. At least that's how I like to use them. I used this week's sketch at Taylored Expressions. The paper is October Afternoon & I will include a 4x6 sample of each sheet in every order I get today. I also used this great tutorial on ribbon pleating you can find on the Tickled Pink Stamps Blog. Don't you love it? And it's SO simple!

Today is my last day for FREE shipping on all orders. Beginning tomorrow I will be charging $3.00 to ship orders up to $35, $5.00 for $36-$60 & then FREE shipping for any orders over $60. Of course, all local orders placed will be delivered personally by me so I will refund any shipping charges.

Enjoy the rest of the hop!
