Stamping Saturday – Memorial Day

I know.. I know.. I am very late in posting my SS look this week! :/ As I mentioned in my other post my sister is visiting, and today she came over to help me garden. I went to Lowes and got some edging rocks to match what I already have out front and some bags of dirt… well my Stepdad went with me and they dropped a brick on his truck and scratched it and¬†I felt Terrible!!! ūüė¶ My sister¬†and I planted the butterfly bush and lilac bush I picked up last weekend! I love it ūüôā I’ve also been pretty sick the last couple of weeks so I apologize for the lack of posts recently¬†. :/

 

Although Memorial Day is so much more than just the un-official start to Summer, I did some festive nails for the occasion. I painted two coats of Nina Ulta Pro’s Cobalt and then Darling Diva’s Home of the Brave. I then stamped Ulta’s Snow White using my¬†Red Angel stamp¬†RA319.

This glitter topper is so special and I saved it just for this occasion! This is one of Darling Diva’s ‘Cause’ polishes. 100% of the proceeds from this purchase goes to the DAV in her fathers honor as he is a¬†Vietnam Veteran. I absolutely love this topper and love how special it is to her, which makes it special to me. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but my husband was in the Army and he went to Iraq twice.¬†I am also involved in my local American Legion where we give back to the community and give back to our Veteran and Active Duty families, those serving overseas, Homeless Veterans, Disabled Veterans, etc. like this. The polish is $10.00 and can be found here¬†
