Happy 4th of July!!

Woo-hoo!! It's Independence Day!! What a fabulous holiday and boy do I plan to PIG OUT today!! Yummmmm!! We're headed to my parent's house for a BBQ this afternoon and we've got LOADS of good ol' southern food on the menu! Ribs, hot dogs, grilled corn on the cob, potato salad, baked beans, garlic bread.... is your stomach growling yet? Smiley

Ok, before I head out, I wanted to post this little card I made with "Swingin' Mavis" from Stamping Bella. Ain't she the cutest?? I stamped her onto some Bella's Bestest paper and colored her with my Copics. I cut her out with my circle Nestie and sponged some chalk ink around the edges. You can see my tutorial on this technique HERE. I matted the image with a large scalloped circle Nestie cut from the same DP as I used on the bottom of the card. This DP is from Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday collection and I matted it with some SU Very Vanilla and stitched around the edges. To finish, I tied this cute black stitched ribbon into a little bubbly bow with a button in the center. Okee dokee, that's it from the hen house today. I hope you hens all have a fabby day and I'll see ya back in the hen house tomorrow with another SUPER CUTE Stamping Bella creation.
