Your next stop will be with our fearless leader Jak. I hope you enjoy the hop and GOOD LUCK!!

Happy Independence Day America!!!

I was flipping through my Just Inklined images trying to decide which image I wanted to use and Daisy jumped out at me. I remember when I was little there was always a parade on the Fourth of July. We would all put red, white and blue tassels on our bicycle's handle bars and an American flag on the back of our seats and ride to the parade. Later that night we would ride out again to see the fireworks. This is what I imagined Daisy was doing too. She kinda reminds me of myself. (Except I would NEVER have been caught in a dress. I was a big Tom Boy)
I hope you all have a safe and wonderful July 4th!!


The order of the hop:


Paper: Creative Memories - Stars, Bazzill Basics - Breaker Bay & Red Devil
Accessories: Clip art - fireworks, Cuttle Bug - Star border embossing folder, Fiskars - Corner punch, Glossy accents, stickles & twine

This is a great card... like a de-motorized harley!
I think it was fab the way you put in the fireworks- and how you put in the bakers twine that looks like red/white /blue....
Wow!
You are beyond creative!

It would be obvious to the mechanic that a modification had been fitted, as the box and wiring are visible. Diesel tuning boxes can be quickly removed at home to revert the vehicle to standard before putting the
car in for a service, and then re-installed afterward.
