Happy 4th!

Hi!  Now that summer is here, seems like I have more time to craft.  Though I know that could change any minute.  I got a chance to make another card.  This one is inspired by TGF's Farm Fresh Friday 4th of July Fun challenge and by Anyone For Anya's sketch challenge.  It's my first time participating with Anyone For Anya even though I've visited their blog many times before.

My little card to celebrate the 4th of July.  I used TGF's Twirl Anya and paper pieced her top.  I thought the pinwheel looked fun.  I also thought about using Twirl Anya on a scrapbook page of my family watching the 4th of July fireworks from couple years back but it's kind of hassles to get the photos printed out.  Yeah, this summer I'm totally feeling lazy.  The stars stamped behind her are from Lawn Fawn and the ticket die and stamps from PTI.  I had to add some flowers to camouflage my grass rub-on.  Only a bit of it rubbed off and then when I put it back to do the rest it just didn't look very pretty.  Thank goodness for flowers.  Though maybe I should have glued some felt grass over it or something.

Thanks for reading!  I'm off to do some cleaning and organizing.

Oops, I guess I forgot to post a comment this morning, too busy making my coffee... Anyhow, cute card! The short hair is looking cuter the more times I see it. Very patriotic pinwheel.
