Classic Summer Colors

Hello there Stampers!
Golly, how did it get to be Monday so quickly?  Those weekends just don't last long enough!  If you attended Cheri's party on Saturday or Kristine's party on Sunday, then you got to make this fun summery card--- just right for the 4th of July!  What's that you say?  No one makes cards for the 4th?
Well, yes they do!  Stampers make cards for any and all occasions.  Any excuse to make a card will do! 

This red, white, and blue card looks very 4th of July-ish, but red, white, and blue aren't just for the 4th of July. There are many red, white, and blue things to love about summertime. Think of blue skies, white clouds, red cherries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, red and white checked picnic tablecloths, white sails on sailboats, vanilla ice cream, watermelon, sun-ripened tomatoes... I guess I could go on for quite a while.  But you get the idea... red, white, and blue just say summer to me--- my very favorite season of the year.  It's not surprising, since I was born in July!

Guess I'd better quit with the jabbering and cut to the card!  Here it is...

The new In-colors Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse look so gorgeous together, don't they? This little tricycle reminded me of our neighborhood's annual Fourth of July parade.  It is so fun to see all the little kiddos on their decorated bikes and trikes riding proudly down the street behind the big fire engine.  Of course there are lots of sweet babies in strollers, wearing hats and sunglasses and being pushed by moms and dads.  Oh, and don't forget the dogs.  They're wearing red and/or blue bandanas around their necks and one year we saw a little mostly white Jack Russell that the owner had stencilled with red and blue stars.  Maybe that's going too far??

Let me give you a quick list of the products I used so you can order the supplies to create this little gem.

OK stampers, that's it for today.  I've got a lot on my list, so I need to get started. 
Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll see you back here on Wednesday for another Classic Card!
Happy Monday, everyone!
