Many Tanks!


Today's Featured Stamper at SCS is one of my favorite stampers, Kelly, aka schirmcat!!
She has such an awesome gallery; I could spend all day in there.

I cased Kelly's darling card HERE. Click either photo for a close-up~

I changed the images and colors, from heart to star, moved the sentiment, and added ric rac. I kept her layout and the basic design.

I colored my images and chipboard star with Copics. There are Crystal Stickles on the tank flags.


Thanks for stopping by! I am headed into a busy week! "My Fair Lady" opens officially on this Thursday, with performances on Th, F, and Sat., and we have two pre-preformances on Tuesday and Wednesday. First dress rehearsal with costumes, make-up, set, and sound is tonight -- that should be fun (ha!)~

Can a card with tanks on it be "pretty"? If so, this one definitely is! I love it! I wish I was close enough to come see you and DH in "My Fair Lady" - I LOVE that show! I also wanted to say that - although I didn't leave comments on each post - I did look at all the recent ones and you've beena busy girl! FABulous stuff, as usual!

I almost half expect a tiny daisy to be dangling out of the cannon of one of the tanks!! LOL!!!
I love the embellishments! Especially the star/flower combo!!
Great Card!

So much fun to see your hubby and the article about your musical! What a busy time of year for you! I'm so impressed at your energy...wish I could see your show!
Our group is doing "Music Man" this Autumn, but I didn't audition because of the wedding happening very close to show time!

Great card, Judy! The color combo was perfect with the green tanks and pink accents. I especially like the star flower combo.
Thanks for the tip about Firefox- it is working much better than IE.
