We had such a lovely week of weather last week and yesterday the heat and humidity was back and today is thunder storms and heavy rain.  A good day to craft. One cannot run the vacuum when there is lightning! I had a nice time at my son's for the holiday and we had a beautiful fireworks display on Monday evening in our neighborhood.  Todays card is for my stash. I'm trying to make some ahead just to have to say hello or thinking of you. Very simple - just emboss a background stamp and add distress ink with a die cut hello. I added a few tiny little punched out flowers. If you emboss a whole panel, then use just a portion of it, you can color it in any color and it goes farther. Since I used a snippet of the embossed panel I will drop into Di's http://pixiescraftyworkshop.blogspot.com/2016/07/pixies-snippets-playground-week-236.html#comment-form.   I would like to welcome a new follower, Megan. Her blog is https://merrycardcorner.blogspot.co.uk. Be kind to one another.

  2. So good to hear your holiday was spent with family and that you had a good time. Love this bright & cheery card. The colors sing summertime, and of course the dimensional greeting would be appropriate for many occasions. Nice touch to add the tiny flowrs & pearls. Great work. TFS & Hugs

  7. Those colors look so pretty together and with the kraft card base, Brenda! It's a fab design and perfect for making two or three cards with one panel! I'm so glad you had a lovely 4th of July weekend and I hope the weather calms down and cools off soon! Love and hugs, Darnell
