Good morning to all of you.  Yes, I do realize that the Independence Day celebrations have come gone here in the States, but I do have one more card I wanted to share with you.

This little cutie is Lollipop Independence Julie.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils and then added just a tiny bit of Glamour Dust to the stars and ruffle on her dress.  My papers are by Authentique and I love their 6 x 6 patriotic pad.  A very CAS card with a little bit of hemp and a few diecut stars.  Don't forget you can find Julie and tons of other sweet & summery images over in the By LORi Designs Digi Shop.  

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week!

Hugs, Anita
