For a Queen


Just a quick post as I'm a busy girl. Of course, tomorrow is the 4th of July and then on Thursday, my son, his wife, and little munchkin will be arriving for about a 5 day visit. My other son, wife, and two little munchkins will arrive and stay for a while, also. They only live two hrs. away so I see them often. The other one is almost 9 hrs. away.

I did this card for a friend, Nancy aka nwilliams6 (another Alabama girl) who was crowned Queen for the Day...actually for the week..on Splitcoaststampers this past Friday. I was going out of town and didn't get it posted that day. I cased this card of Nancy's. Well, kind of..I did get off the sketch a bit but I think she sees the resemblance.

I made the flower and added some greenery, sponged butterflies that were run throught the textile embossing folder,  and a sentiment. I was really wanting to use this paper as I love birds

Wishing my American friends a Happy July 4th.
