Happy 4th of July!


Summer already seems to be flying by!  Before we know it, July 4th will be here!  I was inspired by the star in the FUSION inspiration photo along with the stripes.  I decided to create a card by stamping inside the negative star image.  Off I went and had a happy July 4th card!  We'll be away for July 4th  with Pat's side of the family celebrating his parents 50th wedding anniversary!  Lots of family, games and overall good times for us to look forward to in a few weeks!

And here are a few pictures from our dinner out for my mum's birthday.  We had a very nice night out and went out for ice cream afterwards.  The older two and Collin were not in the mood to have their picture taken so Pat jumped right in!
