Sweet Summer Nellie

With my unexpected time off from work I've been trying to organize my craft room. I have two boxes of uncolored images that I need to sort through in addition to giving everything its own place.

This is an image I've had colored for a while and finally got around to making it into a card. It's another image I received from WRAK and I think she is quite summery. Which is perfect considering we are going to be heading into a heat wave this coming weekend. YEAH!! the perfect weather for the 4th of July. Which happens to be one of my favorite holidays.

I love the 4th of July, every year a group of us go out on our boat. We spend day Grilling & Chilling and then watch the fireworks from the water. It's so much better being on the water than sitting with the crowds. LOL! Last year the weather didn't cooperate, so I'm looking forward to this year.

So what are you doing for the 4th?

LOVE her!

Your 4th sounds perfect! Way better than dealing with the crowds, huh?

We are going to Fenway on Saturday night! Yippee! Hoping they do fireworks. Then we are painting on S and M. The never-ending list of home improvements!

Great blog Arlene! I luv your pictures & your cards! I too am a big fan of Stamping Bella & found them at Bella Art which is only about 45 minutes from me & was thrilled when I saw how many she carried. You mentioned another store that sold them too...which one was it?
