Hello friends - HAPPY SUMMER! I have been battling anemia for a couple years now, which makes me have a hard time regulating my internal body temperature. I'm almost always cold. Unless I'm in the throes of night sweats, which is great fun (ha!). I am not a huge fan of air conditioning, so I'm really loving the 75-degree weather we've been having the last couple of days! But I'll be ready for the HEAT next weekend, can't celebrate the 4th of July if it's not hot out! LOL Well, I mean, you CAN, but it's not the same. We are going to spend the holiday at my parents house, something we haven't done in a long time. I am trying really hard to take care of myself and not overdo things (something I tend to do), so I'm not hosting a 4th of July party this Summer for the first time in a very long time. I have mixed feelings about it but I know we'll have a great weekend anyway.
Today is my turn to post on the Oddball Too Cute To Spook blog, and I wanted to get everyone into the spirit for our 4th of July holiday here in the US so I decided to color up my images in red, white, and blue. I used Big Eye Beauty Whimsical Dreams Sally's Stars #292 and Hand Drawn Stars and Bubbles #343:
I used some fun patriotic papers from Doodlebug Designs and I fussy-cut the image and applied it with dimensional squares so it would "pop". I added some Rangers Stickles to the stars and bubbles, finished it off with a ribbon tag and a sentiment sticker "you are a star". I'd like to enter this one into the following challenges:
The Sisterhood of Crafters: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday: Red, White, or Blue
Hope you are all enjoying some sunshine and fresh air! Peace.
