I feel as though I have a few things to cover today.

First up the spirit of the July4 celebration continues to grab me in a big way.
Our family is gearing up for the annual block party, only this year we are expanding and hoping for a bigger and better event.
Thanks to this fab digi set by Rhonna...I went with this flyer for the neighborhood::

 yes...i blocked out personal and pertinent information.

Her graphic goodness amazes me. When I grow up I want to be just like her! She is beyond measure one of the most creative digital-goddesses in the business.

Using the same kit, as found here, I made up a July birthday card. Would you allow me to share more July birthday cards? The month is replete with birthday celebrations galore. Hard to keep up, I tell ya.

The background is from Katie Pertiet. I added a brush, also from Rhonna, and used a linear blending mode to make it subtle. The main graphic was all put together from Rhonna. I printed the printable part of the kit and added the banners on the top left. Oh, those Tim Holtz mini attachers are adorable. A new fav tool.

Secondly, is another toot about my friend Alexandra.
Please go visit her and give her compliments for being published in CARDS.
A beautiful publication, to say the very least. She was awarded a two page spread. Her project is gorgeous. I am so proud of her. It is a major boost to one's creativity to be published.
Great job, again, Alexandra. You are so very deserving.


It is indeed July first tomorrow...sigh...summer is flying by. I really hate that.
But I digress...what that means is another blog hop hosted by Margie for OLW: one little word. 
There area a faithful few, this sixth hop of the year, who are working their word and being spiritually and emotionally and creatively rewarded for doing so. I invite you to stop by tomorrow and then hop around a bit. This month's prompt was the most artistic yet, I loved it. I could do it again.

Thanks for stopping in again.
