I hope everyone had a good day. Wasn't that a great thing St. Louis, MO did having a parade to welcome home our returning troops. It is important that our troops know how much they are appreciated for the sacrifices they made in defending our nation and keeping us safe. I know I feel fortunate that I am able to enjoy my hobby and do something for our troops.
Today, I spent the day trying a new technique that a couple of my friends had tried out a couple of weeks ago. It is stamping on heated foam sheets. I tried to make mine look like leather -- it took a few attempts. I only had a small piece of tan foam and that didn't give much room for too many attempts. I did run out of the tan otherwise I would have tried it a few more times :-) -- so this is as close as I could get it to look like leather. In person it does look and feel like leather. My card is a western themed Mother's Day card -- as I am a retired "cowgirl" and do love western themes and the old west.
Have a great week and thanks for stoppin' in.

I made by stamping a horseshoe on a strip of S.U. card stock.
