Happy 4th!!!

OK, someday I'm going to learn how to scan my projects so that the pictures are better.

I'm sitting here in my craft room working on 3 different projects - wishing I could get one done and I think to myself, hey, it's the 4th of July - I should post something to honor the holiday Melissa style. I also had Delight in Life sitting on my table needing to go into the "to be sold" box and so I figure I'll just use it. This is what I came up with in about 5 minutes. What do you think? I'm giving it to our neighbors. I hope they like it.

I hope you all have a safe holiday. Enjoy the fireworks and cookouts but be safe. I want happy stampers!!

I removed a previously posted picture of this adorable hedgie because I did not get permission to publish my sisters card - for that I humbly apologize.

I did make this card - my sister Karin sent me some stamped images of this adorable Penny Black image and I made this card to send to my friend's little boy who recently had surgery. I'm popping this into the mail to him tomorrow. I hear he's doing very well and is loving all the happy mail he's getting!

I hope you enjoy the card, too.

Great job!!! Happy 4th of July!!!!
Maybe I will get one of Theresa's card since I am in that swap also! Someone we know has a certain way of enabling others! :)

It was a collaborative effort...I colored the image and Theresa came up with the layout. We worked on the embellisments together.

I really like this card, Melissa! I love the scalloped layering and the CB embossing, and of course the coloring. Thanks for sharing!
