Happy 4th of July!!!

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. I love this time of the year, patriotic colors, one day dedicated to freedom! I'm so thankful for the soldiers who fight for me even though they don't know me personally. I'm thankful for being able to go to Church and worship God. There's so many freedoms that we take for granted!

Tonight we drove into town for the 4th of July fireworks.

I just love living in the country. And the fireworks were terrific!

I have a card to share tonite. I made it using my new Papertrey Ink Stamps and Pom Pom's from Really Reasonable Ribbon:

Nothing says "Summer" like nice cold lemonade!

And if you're a fan of Cards Magazine, check out the July issue:

My card made the contents page and 2 pages introducing the Chipboard Article, eek! The card that is in this issue was one I had in the closet put away and decided to send it in. It's defintely not one of my favorites, but you never know what might catch a publishers eye! So SUBMIT SUBMIT SUBMIT! When wonderful things happen, it reminds me why I craft and makes me want to get to work in my craft room!

What a cute card!! Makes me want a cool glass of lemonade right about now!
I love the daisies in that set but can't justify the $$ for both - don't think I'd use it enough.
Congrats on the publication! I'll have to go to HL and give it a look-see!
