Patriotic Basket.....

This Sunday my friends south of the border will be celebrating the 4th of July..... So I thought I would make a little card for the occasion! Now you may laugh at this one, but I tried to make my card like a picnic basket to go with my patriotic basket on the front!

I used Vintage Picnic for the basket on the front and just free handed a basket with some handles using the Kraft cardstock...coloured with copics and a white gel pen! I am going to enter the challenge over at StamptacularSundayChallenge: Stars and Strips!!!!!

Hope the sun is shining were you are, at the moment it is raining here. Come back sun!!!!!

  9. What a great picnic basket Christine. You're always so inventive, I love to see what you've been making.

    We've had pretty good weather in North East Scotland for quite a few days and today was really warm. Now this evening we've had some nasty showers!!
