Just a quick lil' pop-in to wish all my American friends a wonderful long weekend! The boys have a half day today, and we are sticking close to home this weekend. I have all sorts of baking on tap for anyone who shows up (summer weekends there's always someone! And I love it!). The propane tank is full and ready for weekend grilling! (I'm going to make some pizza dough in the bread machine, too - Wally & I have a grilled pizza that we love. It has fresh mozarella, proscuitto, arugula, carmelized onions and a balsamic reduction - and I'm armed with all the fixins so my Jr. Foodie and I can indulge!) :)
I put together this card to celebrate this wonderful weekend, although it could easily be used for the 4th of July, too. I am planning on giving it to my next-door neighbor as a Thanks-type of card. He's a retired General and has contributed on tours that would give me nightmares. I think he'll like it.
I used Vintage Picnic for my focal point, coloring it with Copic Trios in Pure Poppy and Enchanted Evening. I love having these Trios already picked out to coordinate with my paper - it makes the coloring process so much faster. The background is Background Basics: Stars embossed with white embossing powder. My envelope liner die JUST arrived (literally - took a break from typing this up to go get it!!!), so my envelope is going to have the matching piece of Pure Poppy Bitty Star Basics. It looks fantastic!
I hope you have a great weekend. Enjoy your family and be well.
