Good morning and Happy 4th of July!!!

We enjoyed our fireworks last night.  We sat in our living room, watched out our patio door which is 12 feet long, cracked open the sliding doors for the sound to come roaring in.  We can see them so good, we are in the perfect spot to watch them.  I can remember when I was younger my parents farmed and they would take the truck up in the field and us kids that went would sit in the back wrapped in blankets and watch the sky.  We built some years ago, in that same field we use to watch the fireworks, right next to my parents.  Good memories!!  Hope your 4th puts special memories in your life.

On to the card above.  This was one of the cards we made when I taught class last Wednesday.  We had a wonderful time and they asked me to teach another class next month, which is the end of July!!!!  I thought that was awesome!!  Thank You Ladies!!! 

Here is the products that I used to make the card.

Stamps:  Who's that garden girl by MFT and Garden Variety by Papertrey

Paper:  Chocolate chip, old olive, very vanilla, garden variety by Cosmo Cricket

Ink:  Memento black, chocolate chip, copic markers

Embellishments:  Papertrey button, twine, jumbo ric rac die from MFT

Have a great day!!
