Appreciation...

Is what I feel for our military. Although Memorial Day is to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice, I want to also honor those who are with us now. So to those brave men and women in the military and their supportive families, I appreciate and honor you all today.

SPECIAL THANKS goes out to those who helped Japan during those first few weeks of the earthquake/TSUNAMI disaster and even now as they continue the work there.

Thank You by Margie Higuchi
Supplies Spellbinders: LF-001 Creative Book Pages & S4-092 Stars Five; Cardstock: Core'dinations; Patterned Paper: TaDa Creative Studios (Star Spangled Banner Paper, Festivus Collection); Stamp: Lawn Fawn; Ink: Ranger; Adhesive: ScraPerfect (Best Glue Ever); Other: white cardstock

I used Spellbinders Creative Book Pages die template designed by Donna Salazar as the card base. It is a little larger (6 1/8 x 6 1/2") than an A2 card. With the Stars Five, I made a window card and cut/embossed star frames to give the card a little kick. Here's a look at the inside of the card.


A few days ago, I received my designer's kit from ScraPerfect and wanted to use The Best Glue Ever on my card. There are many applications but I started from the beginning. As recommended by the Company, I did the following steps:


When twisting the top off, you will find a seal. Pull the seal off and place the top back on the bottle. Without squeezing the bottle, shake the glue to the tip. You don't need that much glue...I dotted glue on my project. No wrinkles and it dries clear & fast! Next time, I will try and make those HUGE glue rounds :0)

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you and your family have a wonderful day!!
