Here it is Tuesday again and a brand new cue word is up over at CASology!
With the Fourth of July coming up this week, I couldn’t help but think of parades and the fun floats that roll by with people throwing sweet treats from them! Thus, the reason my card has a line of marching children. I’m sure I’m probably confusing a few people over on the challenge blog right now!
I clustered all the design elements into the lower right corner and was able to preserve white space. I’d forgotten I had the blue gemstone stars, but figured they’d add just the right amount of interest to this one layer layout. I had to add just a tiny bit of red too, of course, since the sentiment needed some patriotic support!
Be sure and stop by the design team and guest designer blogs this week! Once again, they’ve been working hard at providing inspiration and would love to receive a little virtual wave from you! Then, don’t forget to link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CDT) for your chance to win a prize from Cindy Coutts, this week’s sponsor!

It always seems like the increased speed of summer becomes even more pronounced once the Fourth of July comes and goes! With the coming school year beginning about a week earlier than usual this year, I’m afraid it’s going to feel like we’ve been cheated out of some of our summer! Until then, we’re just going to have to savor every moment.
