Yankee Doodle Treats and Thank You's

Gosh, I can hardly believe the month of July is already more than half over! I'm totally embarrassed that I'm so late in posting this RAK we received from our crafty friend, Lorna for the Fourth of July. But these Uncle Sam treat boxes she put together are so darned CUTE that I just had to share. Lorna created these using her punches, filled them with star and heart shaped hard candies and even a champagne party popper...FUN! This girl never misses an opportunity to celebrate! We 're so lucky to have her as our special friend.
Speaking of being's yet another thing I was embarrassingly late thank you cards.Seems I always struggle whenever I have to make multiples of anything!
Decided to do window style card featuring a favorite Sister Stamps image, Li-Li with her panda. She's so adorable; happy I finally got a chance to ink her up! Colored her up with Copics and mounted her with foam tape to the inside of the card so she'd peek out of the window.
Layered some pretty washi papers for the background and used a Spellbinders Nestabilities circle die to cut the window. For the window border, I chose what I thought was an "Asian" border image found on the internet and rendered it into a cutfile using MTC. Laughs on me, because I learned later this border is actually "Roman". Shows how little I know about art and history!
Here's the card on the inside. Whew, such a relief to have these finally all done and mailed...I'm such a procrastinator!

Wowee! Lorna is awesome!! I wish I could be so creative with punches. The details are awemazing!
Kawaiii!! What a cute card you made. I remember seeing it somewhere, maybe SS FB page? So super cute! Love that you did the window and was wondering how you did it. Yea, I would have thought it was Asian too. lol. Love how Li-Li is popping out of the window with Panda, looks like she's trying to hoist him up to look outside. Brilliant! I would love to case this for the future. TFS!
Have a lovely crafty weekend!
