Great Impressions

First of all, happy Independence Day to all of my American friends out there!  I hope you take a bit of time today to remember those who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have.  No matter what we have to grumble about in regards to our country, there is always GOOD.  And we have it GOOD, friends!  So, God bless America!  And God bless those protecting our freedom.  Let's remember them and their families who sacrifice so much for us today.

Okay, now onto the HUGE NEWS!!!  I've been asked to join the amazing DT over at Great Impressions!!! I'm so incredibly excited and I've got my first project for them to show you today!  AND--every 2nd and 4th Thursday I will be sharing video tutorials of fun and fabulous techniques using the amazing stamps you can buy from the Great Impressions store!  ALSO, we have a monthly challenge where you can be in the running to win some cash to buy some fabulous Great Impression stamps as well--they start the 1st Sunday of each month so I'll be back on Sunday with my card and a link for that challenge. :)

Whew...that's all the "business" I have, so now I can tell you about my card!  I decided to go with a mainly red, white, and blue theme since it is Independence Day.  I think this card will be sent as a AnyHero card for Operation Write Home. :)

Here's my card~
