July 4th

Hey friends, I hope everybody's having a nice 4th of July! :) Here on my end, we are not only celebrating Independence Day we are also celebrating my Mom-In-Law's birthday. Her actual birthday is tomorrow, but she has always celebrated it on the 4th. I made her the card [above] with a Hero Arts stamp, Adirondack Embossing powders, and Distress Inks and my handmade polymer resin flowers.

We didn't have the usual barbecue but we had fried chicken and a spread of great stuff. Like I do every year, I made a birthday cake for her. With the help of my Nestabilities dies, American Crafts Thickers, Copic Markers and my butterfly stamp from Inkadinkado, this cake was another hit. My MIL loves white cake, and yellow buttercream. She is pretty easy to please!

It has been a fun day so far... The whole family is here and having a great time. Hope all of you have a happy holiday!!!
