I hope that you are having a fabulous 4th of July!  We were sooooo busy on Saturday and Sunday that we just really kicked back today.  First, I'll share my card, and then I'll share a little about our weekend.  This card is for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol.  I have already submitted this one, but I took out some supplies today to make another. 

I find myself turning to this paper more and more.  It is Wings and being retired at the end of the month.  So if you like it, be sure to head over here on my website.  I made the card base using a Level 1 pre-printed layout.  I love using those for cards because they are so heavy.  The butterfly is actually one of the Stickease, and I added liquid glass to it for just that little more.  Other items used are self-adhesive pearls, black swirl clip, black ribbon, and Gracious Greetings stamp set.  Non-CTMH items are black Mark Richards pearls.

We went to my nephew's baseball game on Saturday, and we had a blast watching the boys!  While we were there, Shane called to tell us he was coming home for the weekend, so that was a really big treat!  We went out to the lake Saturday afternoon/evening, and then we had our BBQ yesterday.  Today we really kicked back after all the busyness over the weekend.  But I can tell you this - it has been a PERFECT weekend!  I hope your has been the same!!
