HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!  It is so dry in our area that we are under a burn ban until July 10th so there will not be any area firework displays, but we still are going to enjoy the day with a cookout.  I hope you are having a good day with family and friends celebrating the holiday.

It's also Heartfelt Creations' Wednesday and I would like to share two more cards I have made with the sweet Garden Romance Collection.  This collection can be used in so many ways, it definately is a must have set.  In my Blue Birdhouse Card I used the HCD 723 - Garden Romance Die to die cut the birdhouse to create a 3D effect in the scene and I also die cut the butterflies and bent their wings slightly up before adhereding them with a glue dot in the center .  In my Mailbox Card I paper pieced the mailbox and shaded it with Copics to add dimension and then I also die cut it with the HCD 723 - Garden Romance Die and adhered it with pop dots.  These added touches really make the cards special for the receiver.




Make sure and check out all the other great projects the Design Team has created this week on the Heartfelt Creations Blog.  Have a safe and happy Holiday week!
