BLOG HOP!



HI! This is my first time participating in PTI's blog hop and I'm so excited! This months challenge was to find our summer inspiration and no doubt about it- my summer inspiration is 4th of July! My hubbies birthday is on July 2nd and every year it is a big celebration! One year, he even was sung "Happy Birthday" by one of the bands playing at our local 4th of July festival! It's always so much fun! And it doesn't hurt that I absolutely LOVE red and blue or that my hubby is a proud member of the US Air Force! So I browsed for a while and found some red, white, and blue papery inspiration! LOL!
And here's my card made from some 4th of July red, white, and blue inspiration!

This is a 4 1/4 square note card to give to a friend for 4th of July! I used star prints for this card and heat embossed the design with white embossing powder on navy blue paper. Finished it off with a satin white ribbon and it's ready to be sent off!

Here are the details (all PTI unless otherwise stated):

Stamps: Star Prints, Mega Mixed Messages

Paper: pure poppy, kraft, stampers select white, navy (michael's)

Ink: fresh snow

Other: white embossing powder, fresh snow satin ribbon

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to browse everyone's blogs at the blog hop tonight!
