Oh Say Can You See A Blog Hop?



Happy Fourth of July to you all! I'm so glad you could join the SNR Card Universe Blog Hop and I'm so happy to be a part of it! If you came from Lorie's blog The Thinkin Spot, then you are on the right track! If you didn't you may want to hop to SNR Card Universe and start at the beginning.

I have two fourth of July cards for you! My first one uses squigglefly's Ant Birthday image except I think this time the little ant in the middle is carrying a firecracker and one's got a match to light it! The one on the end knows they'll all want a snack later so he's bringing cake!

I colored with these copic markers


I just couldn't let the holiday go by without making a card using Fourth of Mewly!

I had fun with the layout on this one using three borders on the bottom! Lots of sparkle too! Here are the copic colors used to color this



I wish you all a safe and happy fourth! Thanks for stopping by!
Next on the hop is Pam Maas.

Chrisd said...

Love those ants...were they at our picnic?

msfreida said...

Whewwww I didn't think I would ever make it back here! I started out here earlier, but decided I better go back to the beginning so I wouldn't miss anything. This has been one fun day of blogging!

It's funny that you used the candle in the "Ant Birthday" as a firecracker because I thought the same thing the other day as I was making a birthday card! See...you're rubbing off on me...hopefully! :)I love both these images! Squigglefly has SOOOO many new ones that I just have to have!

Hope y'all are having a great day!
Hugs~

Such fun!! Thanks for laying out your copics like that - I'm much more visual and it's hard to imagine the colours - this was helpful.
