I thought this background paper looked like the sky. In case your not aware, Bugaboo is having a 50% off sale until July 5. No, that's not a typo - really - 50%. So be sure to go check them out. I just bought a bunch and might just have to go back for more. I got a bunch of Christmas digis to get ahead of the game. First time I've done the "Christmas in July" thing. Happy stampin :)

Happy 4th of July!! I'm very passionate about The Pledge of Allegiance. I strongly feel that it needs to be said in schools every morning just like it did when I was in grade school.
Right now over at Squigglefly, they are having a sale on some adorable 4th of July images including this one. Also, they have started their group on Paper Craft Planet. You can join them here. We are only 8 away from having 300 followers. When we hit 300 there will be a 30% off code for purchases. So, please go "follow" and get the great discount price. To celebrate their group addition, this weekend they are having a huge PARTY. The celebration will take place from July 2 thru July 4. There will be freebies, challenges and much more!! You don't want to miss this.
Squigglefly has new releases EVERY Saturday. This Saturday they will be releasing images by some new artists - Joni Walker and Revi Devi.
We've added a great new feature to the MySquigglefly section. Now, in addition to viewing your rewards balance, you can also view your purchase history. Re-download images any time you need without having to write an email for support. How cool is that??
So.......don't forget to check out the PCP group this weekend and check out the new releases on Saturday over at SQUIGGLEFLY.

I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT I HAVE BEEN CHOSEN TO DESIGN FOR SQUIGGLEFLY!! IT WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE FIRST DIGI STORES THAT I STARTED FOLLOWING. THEY HAVE A HUGE VARIETY SHOWCASING MANY DIFFERENT ARTISTS. I PAPER PIECED THIS IMAGE. SO SWEET, ISN'T IT? MY DAD'S BIRTHDAY IS COMING UP AND THIS WOULD BE PERFECT. JUST ADD A LITTLE "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" IMAGE ABOVE THE IMAGE.
SQUIGGLEFLY NOW HAS A SPOT OVER AT PAPER CRAFT PLANET -- HERE. IF YOU'RE NOT A MEMBER YET, IT'S COMPLETELY FREE AND IS A GREAT WAY TO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH ALL YOUR FAVORITE STAMP COMPANIES AND CHALLENGE SITES.

FOR EVERY $15 YOU SPEND YOU CAN PICK AN IMAGE OF YOUR CHOICE (NO RESTRICTIONS ON THE FREE IMAGE, YOU CAN EVEN PICK SETS!!). IF YOU SIGN UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH SQUIGGLEFLY WILL STILL GIVE YOU CREDIT FOR YOU PURCHASES DURING THAT MONTH. HERE'S ANOTHER GREAT THING ABOUT SQUIGGLEFLY, IF YOUR COMPUTER CRASHES OR YOU MISPLACE AN IMAGE......DON'T WORRY, THEY KEEP TRACK OF ALL PURCHASES. JUST DROP THEM A LINE EXPLAINING WHAT HAPPENED AND THEY WILL RESEND THE IMAGE(S) TO YOU. HOW GREAT IS THAT??
THIS IS THE FREEBIE OFFERED OVER AT KENNY K. THIS IMAGE MADE ME GIGGLE. MY SON (HE'S 9) JUST STARTED GOLF THIS YEAR AND AFTER THE FIRST DAY HE FELT A LITTLE INTIMIDATED. HE DOESN'T KNOW MUCH, IF ANYTHING ABOUT THE GAME. AFTER A MINI GOLF GAME ON FATER'S DAY AND A LITTLE INSTRUCTION HE WAS READY TO HIT IT HARD. THIS IMAGE SCREAMS CONFIDENCE TO ME.
Coming soon!! I stumbled into a new digi company during a blog hopping good time and OMG! I love these images. They are going to be starting a challenge blog - they are having a Design Team call until June 26. After seeing these images I couldn't help but apply. You MUST go check it out here. Here's a card I made with one of their "Rockin" images.

OK, I HAD TO THROW ONE LAST FATHER'S DAY CARD IN HERE. THIS IS ANOTHER ONE FROM BUGABOO. I'M SO BLESSED TO HAVE THE BEST DAD IN THE WORLD. I COULDN'T ASK TO BE MARRIED TO A BETTER FATHER EITHER. WE WENT OUT FOR LUNCH AND THEN WENT MINI GOLFING TODAY AFTER STOPPING BY TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH MY DAD. IT WAS AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL SUMMER DAY. HAPPY FATHER'S DAY.

Tiddly Inks has some adorable images. I saw this one and fell in love. How adorable!! If this doesn't SCREAM "Happy Father's Day" I don't know what does!! I paper pieced the shirt and tie with coordinating papers. Then added more of the tie patterned paper on the card itself and added the circles in coordinating colors to tie it together. The little metal title says "Dad" on the ribbon on the top of the card. I added the feather to pull out the feather in the had in the image.
