USA Artist Trading Card

The first one is to honor the great USA Olympians...they all were super over in CHINA!! Hats off to the great USA and yes, I'm proud to be an American. God bless America.

My ATC (artist trading card) uses the following A Muse products: fireworks stamp, black frame (clear set), bottom sentiment, three colored star embellishments, and blue polka dot paper. I used a gold glitter pen for accents on the fireworks and stars on the bottom. The other stamps are from Michael's. One of those $1 clear sets.
The next card uses stamps from A Muse Elzybells NA and blue A Muse Maderia paper. I had a little strip of some fancy May Arts sheer white flower ribbon and I glued another piece over it (thin blue ribbon scrap). I used my yellow Spica glitter pen and actually colored the yellow flower centers right on the ribbon. COOL beans! There is white rick rack and blue staples. I edged the scalloped rectangle with light blue chalk ink. Inside sentiment: make a wish. I hope you likey and by the way I used my Copics to color this adorable image!
I must admit I'm still really new at all this blogging bussiness and sometimes it makes me want to scream. I spent over two hours again tonight trying to fix my post from today as I tried to put two cards on one post. Not a good idea. Perhaps tomorrow will be a better day. Lesson learned. One card at a time!! I think I will call it a day and head to bed soon. Sweet dreams my bloggy friends. Peace.
PS Tomorrow will be a MOOSE day if all goes well so I hope you will check back. I'm having Olympic withdrawals. I'm elated Misty May (beach volleyball GOLD medalist) will be on Dancing with the Stars this fall. This was such great news and I'm tickled pink! I really enjoy watching that show just as much as Ellie (my MOM) does. I love *dishing* with her on all the dancers. I can't believe Fall is right around the corner. SMILE Tami : ]
