Friday Fun # 39 Stars and Stripes for Birthdays!

Happy Friday! This week's Friday Fun Challenge is hosted by ME! Since I have several birthdays coming up and there's also a big Holiday this weekend this week's challenge is to make a Birthday card with Stripes- bonus points if you use Stars too however the those are optional. There are two people with birthdays on July 8th so I decided to maximize my stamping time and make two of the same card. Next Wednesday is my son's 18th birthday, WOW! It's so hard to believe but yep- he's going to be 18. The other card is for my friend's husband. I stopped counting his age...it doesn't matter because he is still young at heart.
Be sure to check out the other Friday Fun girls for more samples of the challenge. Also, feel free to play along with us- just use key word FFC39 when uploading to SCS or link your creation to one of our blogs!

I used all Unity Stamps for my cards today. The calendar is from Unity's Confession: i {luv} Unity. I absolutely LOVED this set when it was released and it was all I could do to keep from ordering it right away....but as you can see it got the best of me and now I have it. The rest of the stamps are from some past Kits of the Month. I LOVE going through my older Kits of the Month to find an image. Each kit has so many images and a huge variety, there is always something that works with my project.

Stamps: Unity Confession i {luv} Unity, April KOM Fresh Beginnings (sentiment) and January KOM Love, etc. (distressed stars)
Paper: Kraft, Not Quite Navy, Real Red and My Mind's Eye DSP
Ink: Not Quite Navyreal Red
Accessories: SU Brads, Spiral Punch, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy AND Safe 4th of July!!
