Happy Birthday America
We are going to a block party for the 4th of July. They are predicting rain so we will see what happens. I can't even remember the last time we had rain on the 4th. I do remember many years ago when the girls were little, it was so cold we went to the fireworks display in winter coats and then came home and had hot chocolate. Another 4th that stands out is when we were in Jackson Hole WY. and the fireworks display was to be right behind our cabin. Again it was very cold that night so we stayed outside until we couldn't feel our toes and then went inside and three of us were huddled in the bathroom trying to look out a very tiny window. Michelle was with us that time and we still occasionally talk about that time. Do any 4th of July celebrations stand out in your mind? God Bless America!
My card is an adorable stamp set made for Archivers by Stampendous called Summer Cuties, the fireworks is a sticker from my stash as is the USA and stars sticker. The paper is from Archivers and called Huckleberry. I added some stripes from PTI's Distressed Stripes in the background. Oh and of course I used my Copics to color it and then went over the sunglasses with a clear Spicka pen for glitter. Easy peasy!
Until next time, Happy Trails to you...
