The Funnest Birthday Ever.....

It's just around the corner!  This fourth of July I am looking forward to a great summer time family gathering!  We have eight summer birthdays to celebrate......I think it's going to be a good time!

Of course, we'll gather to celebrate our independence....our freedom, fought and bought by the courage and sacrafice of so many!  I'm grateful for the service members of long ago, those whose lives have been laid down and those who continue to serve with pride!

Patriotic Emily Ann is always my go to image for the Fourth of July!  You can find her in the I Brake For Stamps store, right here.  Take a look see around while you're there....who knows what goodies you'll find!?  Be sure to use my coupon code:  SAVE10JANE

Emily Ann and her pup are colored with Copic markers and then trimmed.  I was goofing around with distress inks and an embossing folder to create my background.  It was a bit of an experiment using salty ocean and firebrick red.....I really like the muted look I've achieved....I think it makes a nice backdrop for such a cute girl :)

Have a great week and!
