Happy 4th of July

Danni made the cutest Lily card the other day and that's what inspired this card. My card isn't necessarily patriotic, but it fits for a fun holiday at the beach. :)

Paper: SU Pink Flamingo, K&Co Citronella
Stamps: Pink Cat Studio, Sentiment is Amuse
CTMH Ribbon, Button, Brads, Twine, Copics, and Crystal Stickles


I want to thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. My grandmother passed away very early Friday morning. May she rest in peace and I'm happy she's not suffering any longer.

These pictures were taken this last fall when my parents moved into their brand new house. In the first picture is my Aunt Nancy, my grandma, me, my dad, Michael, and Emily. Em loves green just as much as I do. :)



And here's a picture of my grandma with Emily and Michael.



I'll probably be back and forth between Seattle and Portland for the next couple of weeks. My grandma will be buried in Fresno, but I'm not sure when we'll be heading down there. Everyone have a great holiday and cherish your loved ones!
