Have you noticed a decrease in blog posts by the crafty chicks you follow? I sure have! Since the official kick off of summer, Memorial Day, and with kids getting out of school for summer break, there's a lot less blogging going on! :) Hope all of you are enjoying your vacations and time with the kiddos! This is Christopher's last week of school.
Before you know it, July 4th will be upon us and I was in the mood to make a card for the occasion with the new 'Yankee Doodles' papers by We R Memory Keepers.
I love these colorful papers that come in a 6x6 pad that's the perfect size for cards! And great for scrapbook pages! I'm actually working on a page right now!
For this card I got out some white paint to brush on the edges of my paper and the corrugated die cuts.
I added a jute bow and a decorative star pin from my stash.
Well, I have my usual Monday errands to run...the post office, the Goodwill. We've been simplifying things around our house for a couple of months now. Each week we go through a closet, set of drawers or room and have been donating lots of things. Sometimes it's hard to let go of stuff. And I often wonder if I'll regret letting go of other things, but overall, it's been fabulous! It's such a freeing feeling to donate all these things! Less to take care of too!
Hope you enjoy your Monday. Thanks for stopping by! :) Kathy
