Ala-I'm moving ahead a few months!

I'm seriously loving all this free time! Why did I sign-up for school again?? Lol.

This week I've been challenging it up, so I had to play along over at A la Card Monkey , #90, for their weekly challenge! I really liked the theme of Break out the new stuff. Whether new or old, but never used,  or new to you that's for you to decide. They also had a sketch to play along with as well.

This sketch is very similar to the Valentine's card I posted for TSOT and I was very tempted to double dip by posting, but I had another stamp that needed a little bit of love. So, here's what I came up with:

Sorry for the exposure, I really need to learn how to take better pics!

So yes, we're either celebrating Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Flag Day! (Your choice) But this little flag stamp was from last year's summer mini, I believe, and I just had to have him...but we moved shortly after and was neglected :(. Sad, I know. I wish I could give all my stamps the love they so rightfully deserve, but I'm trying! The move from wood-mount to clear mount (using the EZ Mount) is helping immensely. Also helps greatly with storing! Plus, those SU cases are amazing to have around, I can put all kinds of trinkets and treasures in there!

Supplies: (SU unless otherwise noted)
Crumb Cake card stock
Night of Navy card stock
Real Red card stock
Whisper White card stock
Whisper White ink
Versa Mark
July Fourth stamp set
Land of the Free Stamp (retired)
Picture This (hostess-retired)
Library clip
Night of Navy 1/4" taffeta ribbon
Whisper White 1/4" taffeta ribbon
