Let's Hear it for the Red, White, & Blue

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Let's hear it for the red, white, and blue. That's what this month's blog hop with the Stamper's Dozen is all about. I love our patriotic colors. They are so bold and the meaning behind each color is so significant. 


I used what some may say is an unconventional stamp set to cover the theme, but I still think it's perfect. Make me think back to when the first settlers came to America. What were they thinking as they finally saw land after the harrowing trek across the sea? I know many did not make it or were very ill upon arrival. But for those that were able to see it with their own eyes, it was the freedom they set off for that lay before them. I'm sure there wasn't a lighthouse there to greet them, but I feel it's still a powerful image for anyone to see if you were out to see a long time.

The saying, "Let hope be your lighthouse, beckoning you through stormy seas," can be a saying that helps so often throughout a person's lifetime, but I definitely feel it is appropriate now with all that every person is enduring. We all have our own reactions/feelings to this pandemic that we struggle with and we need to let our lighthouse get us through these stormy seas.

Remember to keep hopping because you won't want to miss the other great projects that we are sharing. Thank you for stopping by. I can't wait to see you again.

  2. Rachel, I love how you used the frame around the lighthouse focal point of your card. I would not have thought to do that. Thank you for the inspiration.
