Happy 4th of July & Hi Girlfriend Card

I want to wish all of my United States visitors a very Happy 4th of July! I love celebrating the 4th of July with my family. My girls are both marching in the annual parade, and when it gets dark, we go see the fireworks in the main park. We always have so much fun!

I wanted to share another card that I made for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol. Once again, this card didn't get me a spot in the top 20, and it's my second favorite that I submitted. I really LOVE the way this card turned out!


I cut "Girlfriend" on my Cricut using Opposites Attract. I used Bo Bonny dotted paper. The card base is black, and I cut a part of the front of the card off so that I could add the threading water punched piece in pink to the bottom of the card. I love the way that turned out! I then put a gorgeous piece of velvet ric rac over the seam. I added a strip of pink ribbon to the top of the card for another border. I used two gorgeous silk Primas with Making Memories brads. The little tag is Making Memories, and I stamped "hi" on it with my Karen Foster snap stamps.


Here's another view of the card. I just think it's really bold and totally cute!

Well, I scheduled this post . . . how cool that we can do that! Have a wonderful Friday and an awesome weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Carol - Happy 4th of July!! I'm so sorry I have been a bad blogging friend lately...I just seem to be feeling so anti-social in general (perhaps just tired) - but I had to stop by to say hello, and how lovely and cheerful all your work is, as always.
Have a lovely weekend,
Helen x
