celebrate!

Knocking out 4th of July cards this weekend, here's my latest. This one's loosely based on Eat Sleep Stamp's ESS89 sketch challenge ... and in keeping with the red, white, blue, and kraft theme it's also for Stacy's Curtain Call 36 color challenge. Now, here's a question for you ... when I cross stitch OR make the letter "X," I usually start from the top left to bottom right, then make the cross on top from the top right to bottom left. BUT I see lots of gals who make their cross stitches in reverse to me. I just happen to be left-handed. Is it a leftie thing with me, or how do you make 'em? I'm taking an informal poll here, folkes.

We're cooling it and relaxing around the house this weekend, catching up on gardening and laundry duties, and watching some movies we rented. Today we watched From Paris With Love w John Travolta, Jonathan Rhys Meyers (so, is Rhys his Mom's maiden name or what's up with that name? anyone know?), and Kasia Smutniak. It was definitely an action flick, and was only just released in the US in early February. Remember back in the olden days when you had to wait a year before movies were released to DVD?

stamps: SU's July Fourth (my newest stamp set); paper: unknown DPs, unknown Prism dark red and dark blue card stocks; ink: CTMH's Outdoor Denim, CM's silver pen, Inkssentials white opaque pen; tools: unknown QuicKutz alphabet and shooting star
