Hmmm.. Two posts in one day

Well, that's because I've been a very busy woman! Actually, I couldn't wait to have this post ready to share with you.

Timothy J original pic

This is my youngest son, Timothy James (circa late ‘70’s) Tim was all of three at the time when he nabbed his Dad's dress hat and gloves and surprised us with this photo-op. It’s been proudly displayed in my home ever since.

My friend Maurie Manning, author and illustrator of children’s books (Digital Pencil) was getting ready to do some patriotic digi sketches for her Etsy site and I asked if I could provide this photo as inspiration. And, as luck would have it, she ran with it! This newest digi stamp “Time Out To Support Our Troops” was just released today.. ..In addition to a cute little boy and girl giving a great salute (with the correct hand unlike the above), Maurie has created all kinds of military hats that fit these little people that cover every branch of our Armed Forces. So, how cool is that?

Here’s my first creation using this newest digital image from Maurie. .

Timothy USMC

I think Maurie hit a home run with this series and I think you are really going to find many opportunities to use these images in your card making and scrapbooking projects..… I can’t wait to hear what you think and I can’t wait to show Tim that he’s famous!!

You can check out Maurie’s beautiful digital images here.

As always, I appreciate you stopping by… enjoy your day and have a great weekend!
