I grew up in a small town and I've always loved the down-home Fourth of July celebrations: the parades, the cookout, the fireworks, the gatherings. I tried to evoke that feeling of festivity in this card:
And here's a close-up.
I'm so excited to be part of the Trendy Twine Design Team reveal for July. We are featuring Berry Red twine, which is perfect for the Fourth, of course, but the classic red/white combination is a great go-to color for any project. The Trendy Twine blog, Twine it Up!, is full of patriotic projects today featuring twine. There are so many fun and creative ideas on the blog. Check them out!
Trendy Twine has paired up with My Thoughts Exactly for a fun July 4th giveaway of twine and stamps. It's super easy to enter. Just head on over to the Facebook pages for Trendy Twine and My Thoughts Exactly and leave a comment by midnight EST on July 4. Here's the prize:
Trendy Twine also has a new challenge posted for July with a great giveaway: an extreme mini pack, which is 10 colors of Trendy Twine + 20 yards of the Berry twine we're featuring this month. You can find all the challenge details here under the Design Team projects. You can also purchase Trendy Twine here at Annie's Paper Boutique. So many beautiful colors. It will be hard to choose. Just warning you.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful July 4th holiday.
