Happy July 4th!

Hello there and Happy 4th of July!  I hope all my US friends are having a weekend filled lots of family and friends and thankfulness for our independence.

I'm popping in quickly to share a card for the current Paper Craft Color Inspiration Challenge.

This morning, Pat was dropping Ryan off at baseball and the little boys were all sleeping. I went down to my craft room which hasn't seen me for about a week!  I decided to punch stars out and tried to use my Hero Arts Envelope stamp.  I had to stamp it several times but the star image wasn't showing well, so I then added the blue color to make the stars clearer.  A little patriotic birthday card for today's celebrations!

I'll be back soon with a few pictures from our weekend...but I need to leave you with this one of my niece, Ella.  We were smiling about her 60s look with her headband and tied shirt that she wore for their neighborhood bike parade.  She was pretty intense with the watergun fight happening at Nana and PopPop's house earlier today!
