Happy Celebration

 Hi Everyone:
I trust that you are all having a wonderful long weekend with family and friends. I just wanted to share a card with you all in honor of Canada Day and July 4th!  This card is to all my on-line friends who have become really special to me. I think that some of my closest friends are those that I have met on-line and through blogging. So in honour of all of you and the support that you have given me during some difficult times and especially the support you give me here in my cardmaking this card is for YOU! It really means so much, every comment, every suggestion, and all the cards that you send. You have blessed me in so many ways!  Just wish there wasn't so many miles between us!

This card was made using Making Memories patterned papers. Digital Image was stored on my computer that crashed. I have no idea who the designer is, but I do know I purchased it at the Creative Digital Art Center. It is called "Fireworks Birdie" if that helps at all! I do remember that much! Doodle Pantry rings a bell for some reason! 

I made sure to spritz all papers with water and then crumple up into a ball. Then I flatten them all out and then distressed them with Ranger Inks. Center image was cut using Spellbinders Nestibilities. Buttons are Creative Cafe and Maple leaf die cut was from SVG Cut Files. Celebrate sentiment is Stampin' Up and stamped in black StazOn. Ribbon is Daisy Bucket and all edges of paper was distressed with Tonic Perferator.

Close Up of Shimmer & Colouring

This card is being submitted to the following challenges:
Paper Play Time: Use a Digi, Red, White, & blue
Mark's Finest Papers: Challenge # 62 - Patroitic
 My Sheri Crafts: # 63 - Independence Day or Canada Day

Just wanted to share a close up so you can see the shimmer on the fire works. One of my blog followers named Emily was so kind to send me some Shimmer pens. It is amazing Emily! Thanks soooo much sweetie.
Also, the image was slowly coloured, with Tombo Markers, Ranger Distress Inks, and my Staedtler watercolour pencils. I used my white gel pen/Marvy to add highlights.

Thanks for dropping bye and I trust that with all the fun that was had by all, that there were loads of pictures to help you remember the memories forever.

Happy Canada Day & July 4th!!
Hugs & Blessings

This is incredibly DEAR! I love the softness of this. What a great technique. So sorry that you have had computer issues - I hate that! Your message here is so sweet and so typically you. It is such a joy to see you here in cyberland! Love your art and your positive energy.

Yup! Its doodle pantry! :-) And I have to say I really love him colored in red.
Many apologies for not getting the parcel sent out on Friday. I had a duck tragedy and had no heart for anything else.
Will definately get it out today. (everything was closed yesterday for the 4th)
