Cards to Share

I was getting some cards ready for mailing, and I saw two sketches that were quite similar this week. I needed two cards, so I used each of the sketches.   Here are the sketches and my cards:






Both cards also match the color inspirations at The Play Date Cafe and Colour Q:



This is the fabulous American Celebration stamp of the month that you will be able to get on July 1st.  Oh what a wonderful star!  I love the banner, the spray of stars, the phrases, the little stars - I love everything about this set!  I can see using this one for Operation Write Home again and again!  I've paired the stamp set with paper from Fanfare.  Perfect for summer and the 4th of July!
