Happy 4th of July

I finally had some fun crafty time just for myself today and I loved it!  I pulled out my PTI Vintage Picnic set and stamped away.  The 4th of July is right around the corner and I needed to get crackin'.

My BFF and I are going to see Magic Mike tonight.  I am not a big movie goer but this one sure has got me interested.  I am off to dry my hair and paint my face on.  I will let you know how it was! ( We were disappointed in how the story line ended.  It left you asking a lot of questions, and if I had it to do over again I would wait until it came out on video.)


I used various patterned papers from My Minds Eye.  I keep a scrap basket sitting by my desk and I always go for that first.  Lucky for me I found all I needed in my scrap bin.  I colored my image and used some Stickles glitter for the stars.  The die is from MFT.


I used the cute sketch at Sweet Stop sketches for a little inspiration.


Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

Heather, I love that card. I have a thing for Fourth of July cards and colors. This is perfect. I am not a movie-goer either. I just wait till they come on TV.
