I am so happy that we have a long weekend. We have a lot going on but it should be fun. Saturday we need to get the back yard and house ready for our family cook out on Sunday. All of hubby's family will be here and a ton of kids. We are getting out the sprinklers and bounce house for the kids. It should be fun! Then on Monday we just have a quiet family day.
Yesterday I went to Archiver's and I have to say I was a very good girl!!! They had the coupon of buy 3 cardstock and get 3 and I did that, and they had a coupon for 30% off one item. For this item I got a 1 1/2 inch circle punch and that was it!!!!! I was so happy.
Later that day I made another layout from my July Burlap and Buttercups. You have to pop on over there and check out this AMAZING KIT. There is so much stuff-jillibean soup-my minds eye-echo park-jenni bowlin-doodlebug-ribbon and matching cardstock. What a deal. I will be showing my layouts next week.
As you know I am participating in the online Summer Card Camp. The Tuesday's class topic was to make a card with a window.
Here is my take. I used a hero arts note card and stamped it with coordinating ink. I then punched a circle on it. I then punched a white circle of neenah cardstock and stamped it with memento ink. I colored my peacock with copics. Next I used a small sheet of acetate and covered the back side of the front of the card. This created the window. On the acetate I then put some bling from hero arts. As Jennifer said in the class "this creates a floating effect" The gems look like they are "floating in air". Finally I stamped my greeting. I love how it turned out.

Well I hope everyone has a fantastic day. I will actually be back tomorrow because I am behind in my class and I need to get caught up. You know I hate being behind _heheheheheh-. So have a great safe and happy 4th of July if you are taking the weekend off from the blog world. See you later!
