It took me awhile to recover from my long term sub job! Those 7th graders did me in, but I enjoyed teaching Reading for a couple months. But then vacation came around and time just got away from me. But my inspiration to post again came from Pals Paper Arts and their 4th of July theme. I feel blessed by family, friends and the freedom we experience because so many brave Americans fought and died for it. I love saying the Pledge of Allegience, do you? Anyway, this card is made of all retired Stampin Up designer paper, stamp set and embellishments. But the colors are current: Riding Hood Red and Baja Blue! After I put the card together I decided the mouse needed a little flag to wave! So I just glued some tiny little strips together. Isn't it cute? Happy 4th of July!
