Hi guys,
     Wow am I tired.  So I am going to make this a super quick one for you.  Because I am still in the process of making  ordered cards for a couple of my friends and coworkers I needed to make one of them a 4th of July card.  I got to thinking about what stamp and what papers I wanted to use when I remembered my all time favorite paper pad from last year by BoBunny.  I absolutely LOVE this paper with the flag on it and the muted red, white and blue colors.  To me it makes the flag look very vintage and it also reminds me of the fact that even if the flag gets worn or tattered a little it still stands for everything that we believe it and for all the men and women that fight everyday for each and everyone of us.   I just love it and really wanted to share it on this card.  
     I also think that little WS-Summer looks like a cute little girl in the middle of summer getting ready for the fireworks that her and her family have gone to the park to see. :O)  I just can't help but smile when I see her.
     Ok guys, that's it for me today.  I have to go to bed as I need to get up and help Jerry re-attach my review mirror on my car as it fell off this morning on the way to work.  We won't get me started on how much I love it when little random things like that happen with cars .  lmbo....
     Have wonderful day.  Talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

I was going for a firework look with the pearls, but it didn't really come out the way I envisioned it. lol... I also

Wonderful card Lisa, Summer is the perfect little patriotic cutie! And I love the idea of using the pearls as the flash of fireworks up in the sky... so clever! :)
