Wow cant believe May is getting so close to being over!! School is out, flowers are popping out of the ground, the trees are green-ing out, the sun has been spending quite a bit of time with us and camping fun is about to start! Usually our first trip of the year is Memorial weekend. I love, love, love camping. My mom used to take us camping all the time when I was growing up and its something I love to do with my kids! This week was our Memorial Day/Patriotic challenge. I knew right away what I wanted to do. My step-mom's birthday is the 4th of July and she loves decorating with red, white and blue. So I made her a birthday card! I was able to stop into JoAnns this week while E was at baseball practice and I picked up my very first 2 bottles of Shimmer Spritz. I couldnt wait to try them out on this card. I used the 'sparkle' spray on the stars to give them an extra shine. This is also the first time I have used my Sizzix embosser for a DT project. Dont get me wrong I find every reason to pull it out and use it on my stuff, but first time for a DT card. Hope you all have a great extended weekend and enjoy your Memorial Day!
