Happy 4th of July!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY EVERYONE! Hope you have a great celebration surrounded by family & friends! I'm still on vacation here in beautiful South Carolina until next Monday--yippee!  The kids spent most of the day yesterday in the pool here at our house and then we grilled out and walked on the beach--a nice Saturday indeed.  And a cool-front moved thru and it was 78 degrees & no humidity, amazing weather for down here and it's going to be low humidity and 80's all week!  We are spending the day doing some fun activities in Sea Pines and then see the fireworks off the beach--low key and fun!  Sorry so short, but I'm in vacation mode now and don't want to spend too much time on my computer, lol!  Have a great 4th!


-I have the Copic Summer Special still going on at the Color Me Creative Classroom thru the end of JULY!  Get $10 off your total if you sign up for 2 classes and get $20 if you sign up for all 4 classes---only Copic classes, not Cricut. Once you sign up & pay your monies will be refunded to you in 48 hours. This will not happen again until 2011, so if you want to learn how to use those Copics over the summer--it's a great deal! (if you need to pay by check/money order please email me separately so we can arrange that)

-ICopic is having a fabulous 4th of July Sale too---check out all the details HERE if you want to add to your Copic supplies!


This cute lil' image is from I Brake For Stamps called "Mouse with Flag"--isn't he a cutie?  The flag is blank so you can stamp or color it how you please, but I colored it to look like the good ole' American Flag!  Simple red, white & blue colors---a big white bow done with my Bow Easy and the background is a Tim Holtz CB embossing folder (woodgrain--so cool)!  And yes that flag got some bling via stardust Stickles!!  **REMEMBER to use the coupon code "SAVE10SUZANNE" to get 10% off your entire order at IBFS!!**

My second celebratory red, white & blue card uses a fabulous image from Lockhart Stamp Co called "Adirondack Chair" from SCACD--I LOVE this image!  It reminds me of summers growing up and the Adirondack chairs my dad made for our deck and sitting out around the fire--good times!  Such a wonderful summer scene to me!  I used my Scor-Pal to create a basket-weave embossed texture on the white cardstock, added some strips of scrap papers and some fun buttons!  The image was colored with Copics and then I used diamond glaze on the pot and stickles on the grass for some pretty sparkle!

Hope you liked today's projects and hope you're off to a wonderful start of Summer!
