Happy 4th to you!

Hello and happy 4th to you!  Have any fun plans for such an important day?  We have a cookout and fireworks on the agenda and I must confess I'm pretty darn excited about the s'mores!  Thought I would make my card red, white, blue and happy themed today.  Here's what I put together:

I was so excited to see this new stamp set in the catalog.  I absolutely love bicycles (Little bit of wacky trivia about me...I don't really *ride* bicycles, I just love the thought of bicycles!) LOL Anyhow, this set is so much fun!  It took me absolutely forever to make this simple card,  but I love the end result.  It is a 2 step stamp set and has tons of pieces and tons of possibilities!

This set comes with matching Thinlits, so no fussing cutting involved!  It also lets you add color to the stamps by stamping it over your outline image. 2 step stamping is the bomb!  So, for example I stamped the outline image of the basket in Basic Black and then stamped over it with Crumb Cake and the solid stamp to color it.  I did the same with the puppy and the bike seat, handlebars, pedals and the flowers!

It's a perfect day to take the pooch out for a ride and deliver some flowers to a friend!

Here are all the things I used to put together this card:


I hope that you have a wonderful day today whether you are cooking out or just hanging out!  Hope your day is filled with fun things that make you happy.  

I will be back soonest with more to share! Happy 4th to you and you and you...!
