This week is a special week at The Friday Mashup.  Lisa has asked to focus on Memorial Day and remember our fallen troops.  I didn't feel that I really had stamps to do her challenge justice, but I did my best.

I pulled out my retired July Fourth stamp set and my stars die to work with the colors that Lisa requested.   I hope it turned out somewhat patriotic?    Yesterday was a long day and by the time I saw down to stamp I was pooped!    My mojo is almost gone completely, so it's probably good that I'll be on "maternity leave" after this month.   You guys will be starting to think a kindergarten kid was making my cards!   

I hope you'll come play along with us and honor all those brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our beautiful country.  

Stamps:  July Fourth, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade, Whisper White
Tools/Accessories: Big Shot, Tasteful Trim die, Stars #2 die, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, Basic Rhinestones
