Happy 4th of July!
Kris and Chris have a great view, including a pool to float in during the display, and we are looking forward to relaxing in a QUIET place.
In honor of this day, a few years ago I made these cards and kept them sitting around as a reminder that this holiday is about our freedom. So, for as much as I detest the crowds, there is more about life than me and my dislikes.
The first picture is a matchbook card. All products used are CTMH, but alas, retired. This card was my first attempt at distressing- sanding,tearing, masking, and edging in ink. This was also the first card that I submitted for publication and was accepted! The second card is a sleeve for a popcorn bag. Great idea for the movie lover- fill a bucket up with candy, popcorn and a GC to a local movie store. Why not cover the candy and bags of popcorn with your favorite c/s and stamps? The stamps used here, again CTMH, but used a word set to stamp various phrases/words that represent freedom.
Happy 4th and enjoy your fireworks display wherever you may go!
