You add sparkle to my life...

Goodness, it's been a week since I've posted! So sorry.
I did, however, fix my laptop while I've been keeping company with the ice bag,
so I can now leave comments from there!


Hope that you are all doing well!


Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge at Paper Playtime this week,
and the theme is red, white, and blue.


With the 4th of July right around the corner, I just had to find time to create a patriotic card. This cute set is "Firecracker Bugs", and comes complete with DP and sentiments. I added some yellow, gold, and white stickles for lots of sparkle.


I made this card for my DH, who is my #1 craft fan, and also my soulmate! I'm hoping it will bring a smile to his cute little face on the morning of the 4th! The sentiment says "You Add Sparkle to my Life"...


Head on over to Paper Playtime, and join in their challenge - you could win a Doodle Pantry prize - how much fun would that be???!!!


Have a great evening - I'm off to cook supper.


Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.


Food for thought: I'm going to start a new club, "The Trio Club".....I need three pairs of glasses - one for driving, one for reading, and one to find the other two!

Ooooh I love your ants! I tried doing a card with them and I loved how the coloured the ants but didn't like my background. Your is clean and simple and so perfect!! Adore the sparkle, can't have too much of that. AND I would like to join your Trio Club. I can NEVER find my glasses I need glasses to find them!

Sign me up for club. I love doing the feely thing by patting all over my desk to find what pile they are under and then feeling the top of my head to see if they're there and then back to patting the piles on the desk. Geesh!
Such an adorable card and I know your hubby will love it! Happy 4th!!
