Patriotic Red, White & Blue Friday

It's the Friday eve of the 4th of July week-end festivities and all of us here at the Sisters in Stamping are thinking sparklers, fireworks, BBQ's and family fun!
 
 
 First up we have Jennifer's red, white and blue card. This color combination is famous for patriotic cards but, she shows us that doesn't always have to be the case. Lovely card, here is her blog for your convenience.


 Here is Rachel's project this week, really like the patch work stitching that she did on the background and the heart. Jump on over to her post for today's project and read up on how she created this gem.

Party Time with Balloons

Welcome to another Fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping. This week we have a few taking the week off due to vacations, but they'll be back next week. The theme for today is Party time, especially with balloons. Who can have a party without balloons? They are the best party decoration ever.

And we all have birthdays around us all the time so we can never have too many birthday cards. Besides, they are just so much fun to make because birthdays are just a very happy occasion.


This is Debbie Naylor's balloon card. I love the background, head over to her blog to ready all about how she made this fun card. 


Then we have Rachel Yurkanin's festive birthday card. She made a unique background as well. Check out her blog for all the details on what she did.

Although both cards used the same color scheme, I promise it wasn't planned at all. I guess you can tell what the new favorite in color is. (Wink, wink!)

Thanks for stopping by,
