Hello!  It is the day before the Fourth of July Holiday here in the United States.  I am at the beach, and as so often happens when I am here, either my husband and I end up on a medication that prohibits us from being in the sun!  Pretty ironic don't you think?  Always looking to make the best of the situation, I pulled out my trusty craft bag and decided to make a card for no particular reason, or challenge.  All of the stamp images, the designer background paper used for the squares and the clip art are from Crafty Individuals.  Seedless Preserves Distress Ink was my ink of choice.  The lace and buttons are from my stash.  Happy Fourth of July to all who celebrate it, and a good week to everyone! Best, Yvonne

Very pretty and sweet, Yvonne!


Not sure what to say about the beach situation! Enjoy the waves, from the comfort of the shade of a large beach umbrella?

Sending you a hug.
