Thanks Judie!!!

Tuesday at card class, Judie showed us 2 gorgeous 4th of July cards she had made for her grandkids.  I should really talk her into setting up a blog to share her creations.  They are fabulous.  Then after she showed us her cards, she very proudly gave me this:  
a wonderful pile of negatives.  
Missing from this photo are the two negatives I used for these cards:

Off to the start of another baseball tournament this evening.  My grandson is excited because the game doesn't start until 8:15 and they get to play under the lights.  I hope he stays awake.  He's usually in bed about that time.  Heck, I hope my DH and I stay awake.
Tomorrow's game is in the middle of the afternoon and also the middle of my son's annual 4th of July Picnic.  I made a big batch of mac & cheese without bread crumbs on top (my grandsons' request) and I have baked beans in the oven that smell so good. 

Hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!

  2. Doesn't it feel great when you can use the "extras" from a project? I know I do. Good job with everything, especially adding texture. Thanks for joining ScrapbookerPhD's Texture Challenge.

  3. What a great gift, and such a clever use of the negatives! I really must start doing that. Gorgeous cards! Happy 4th, CG

  4. These are really terrific, Debi! I always love seeing how other people use negatives since I love using them myself. Always glad to get new ideas. :-D
