Papertrey Ink's June Blog Hop!
The challenge Nichole issued this month is for us to get inspired by the lazy days of summer, and create something that means "summer" to us. I saw the cover of Martha Stewart Living and of course it reminded me of the 4th of July, and even though it was ice cream, it reminded me of a cup cake!
This is my card that was inspired by that magazine cover. The gingham at the bottom is two rows of ruffled trim and the blue/white ribbon is white twill that I stamped with polka dots.
The 4th has been a special tradition for us for many years. We have spent the holiday with the same family for at least the last 20 years - and we've lived in different states the whole time.
This was in Atlanta in 1996 during the Olympics.
The kids are now 19, 22, 18 and 17. They'll be joining us again next week in Atlanta and Lake Hartwell so stay tuned for an updated picture!
Thanks for hopping by!
