Time seems to be ticking away at lightning speed lately. Wish I could put on the brakes. LOL. Can you believe half the year is just about gone??? Wowie, need to start focusing on Christmas. :-)
Putting up a quickie post today as my laundry is calling out to me...ugh.
With the 4th of July just around the corner, I whipped up this card today using a Kitty Bee image called "I Heart Bear" from Ben Franklin Crafts. I love bear images especially those that look cute and cuddly like this one. To fit the theme, I printed "U.S.A." from my computer, punched it out with my heart punch, and glued it to the red heart. Can you see the square glass tile with the red star and "freedom" below it? I've had those glass tiles for some time now and finally got to use it. Got them at Ben Franklin Crafts. They're really neat!
