Hello and happy Fri-Yay!

I hope you all enjoyed your Independence Day to those who were
celebrating yesterday. We had storms roll through, but they held off
just long enough for our community to enjoy the fireworks display.

While it rained earlier, I decided to have some fun in the craft room,
and created a card:

This came together rather quickly for me. A rarity! LOL!
I used snippets from a paper collection, triple cut and stacked the aloha
sentiment, and even found a hibiscus image that I colored up last year!
The letters received a generous dose of my Wink of Stella pen.
 (Ooohh! Shimmery!)

That's it for now. I'm off to enjoy the day.
