What Holiday Is It?

Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend. Ours was a lazy one. We celebrated our 35th anniversary yesterday by just hanging out in the air conditioning. My husband did fix me a nice dinner though!

Today is a new challenge on the Squigglefly blog, and it's fun one! The challenge is to make a holiday card, but use an image for a holiday other than the one it was intended for. The design team really did a great job with their cards. They got so creative with it, and you need to go by and see for yourself!

I picked out a birthday image from Squigglefly called Ant Birthday and turned it into a 4th of July card.

I left off the ant carrying the birthday cupcake and turned the candle into a firecracker. I colored everything with Copic markers and printed the sentiment with my computer.
I hope you'll get a little creative and play along too! It's fun to do!
Have a fabulous Monday, and thanks for looking!
