Happy Tuesday! Today is the start of another Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge! The challenge this week is to create a new project using the Cricut cartridge Stand and Salute. If you don't have that cartridge, really any military or patriotic cut will do. I used the little green army men from the Toy Story cartridge. I tried to do a more masculine kind of card...and if you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that masculine cards are VERY hard for me. I had planned on embossing the kraft cardstock with a star embossing folder, but evidently I just imagined having a star embossing folder. Oops.
You can link up your project HERE! I can't wait to see all of your patriotic projects!

I tried to design a scrapbook layout yesterday and NOTHING came to me. I have a ton of layouts that I need to finish from our Disney trip, but I am completely uninspired. I think it may be due to the fact that we have been working on our daughter's bathroom for what seems like a million years. It was supposed to be an easy (ha) project involving taking out wallpaper, replacing faucets, and cabinet hardware. It turns out that the builder put up the lovely 80's mauve wallpaper directly onto the drywall (because who wouldn't assume that mauve wallpaper would stand the test of time). We had to prime the walls, skim coat the walls, texture the walls, and THEN paint the walls. I did discover a hidden talent - I am actually pretty good at skim coating and texturing walls. Now that we are finally done with all of that - it's just the "fun" stuff left. So anywho...that has been taking up a lot of my down time.
