Happy 4th

Happy 4th!
I am so grateful to live in this wonderful country! And grateful to all those before me and those now who protect our freedom! Thank you!

The 4th of July is a favorite holiday around our house. Fireworks, BBQ, picnics, fun in the sun, outdoor lawn games, summer drinks, including my personal favorite sun tea, are just the many things that make this holiday fun. {Having an extra day off work isn't too bad either ;)}

My tent card celebrates the great holiday. The Digi Shack's weekly challenge is to make a card with Red, Navy, Bashful Blue (or light blue), White. Lani is colored with Copic markers. Isn't she adorable?! Some of my Design team sisters have colored her with brown hair and she is just as gorgoeus. {Hop over to the challenge to see all the cards}

The tent part of the card was made with 1/2 of an oval (instead of a circle) using my colluzzle. It is one of those old tools that I still love and use. The beaded arc was made by using Tombo multi liquid glue and then the beads were sprinkled and allowed to dry. The powder pal trays from SU! keep the beads off the work surface and floor.

I'll be blogging around this weekend; looking forward to some extra time cardmaking, playing challenges and seeing all your super creations. Happy 4th!
