My belated greetings to my U.S. readers for Independence Day. I signed in to post on my blog last week and picked up a virus. Yuck! I clicked 'yes' on a pop-up without thinking, and instantly knew that was not a good thing. I have a good anti-virus program that stopped it from doing great damage and was able to retreat to an earlier point on my computer. Whew. I was so discombobulated that I couldn't finish my post that night. If that wasn't bad enough, another nasty old virus made its way into my throat so I spent most of the weekend in bed. But I am back in business now.
I made three versions of this card since I had only two 6x6 inch squares of the patterned paper. One version that I gave to the Cardologists used a triangular piece of the patterned paper at the top with a diagonal strip of blue embossed paper. In these two versions, I used up the scraps of the patterned paper.
The embossing folder used on the blue paper is by Darice; the sentiment is by Serendipity stamps purchased a while ago from a local store that has gone out of business:-( Inside the card is a larger white star stamped with "Have a Star Spangled day!" The stamp is by CC Stamps and purchased years ago at a stamp convention.
Because the nasty viruses threw me out of schedule, I missed entering these cards in the Retro Rubber challenge for the 4th of July. Please check out the winners of that challenge now. I can enter these cards in the Pixie's Snippets Playground 184 challenge though since I used up my snippets of patterned paper on these designs.
Have a good day.
