So Happy


Getting back to normal after a busy 4th, 
with family, friends and a jolly block party.
Created a card for MIM's challenge, String Art.
Amy's video shows 3 projects, and how she incorporated
a fun art technique into card making.
I don't think I've ever done this before, so Pinterest was a great source 
of projects.


Stitched tag provided the holes for stitching, as well as the die cut heart from
 the Stitched Apple set.
Here's a look at the dies used, as well as the string.


Meadow Greens background, So Happy from Make It Market: Color Pop Butterfies,
Vellum sprig from Friendship Jar Flowers.
My tag is cut from PTI's Shimmer Cardstock.
Always fun trying something new!
Hope your week is cool. We finally broke 100, and will be in 90's for awhile!
Definitely thankful!
