Oh, Say Can You See? (Verve June Release Con't)...

Oh, dear, it's the last full week of June and I am SO behind on my July 4th cards! Seems to me the late Father's Day this year had me thinking I had more time. The Verve Release Week Challenge sketches gave me a great boost toward catching up, so here are two cards to help celebrate our Independence Day.

Lady Liberty (VSJUN03)
First up is a card using this adorable little stamp of the Statue of Liberty. I think the sentiment is even more touching and stirring for her sweetness. I picked up the perfect satin ribbon for one US dollar (can't beat that!) at the craft store and made the background paper with a glitter gel pen.

Our Lil' Firecracker (VSJUN05)
My second 4th of July card stars my own lil' firecracker, whose big grin says it all. He's 20 months old with a pretty early bedtime, so alas, he will be missing all the fireworks, but I think his smile still lights up this card.
