Lady Liberty and another clue...

Good morning everyone! Well, we are on the back side of the week now the next thing we know it will be Monday. It's funny but true!

Today I have a clean and simple 4th of July card. I've made more 4th of July cards this year than I ever have in the past and I think that is because I've had some fun images to work with. This image is absolutely one of my favorites! Unfortunately, the photo doesn't show it well but this card has lots of glitter on it. I used my Stardust glitter pen and highlighted all the fireworks along with the red in the flame and then the yellow in the flame I used a yellow Spica pen to color. It is very fun! I added a row of piercing, a sentiment, and then popped up Lady Liberty to complete my card.

I know some of you would love to have another clue for my competition tomorrow, right? Hmmm...lets see. Oh, I know. Due to the fact that my husband is retired military we will be able to stay at a special place to help reduce our costs of the trip! We can also get special ticket prices which will further reduce our cost. Although not a clue...DH has gotten his vacay slip approved at work...yay! So, today I will be taking a picture of this blog candy to post for you to see tomorrow as well as it will be the ONLY day for you to guess on our vacation destination. I will post around 6:30 a.m. my time (I'd schedule my post for midnight but the scheduling feature isn't reliable right now for blogspot) and you'll have until 5 p.m. tomorrow night to post your guess. Out of all the correct guesses I will choose a winner and let you know on a later post who won. Now, I will not accept just state guesses I want you to tell me specifically where we are going. I will give you one more hint tomorrow, too. Tell you friends about this if you want. The more the merrier! Remember...official guesses tomorrow!

You will need to comment a second time tomorrow to be entered in for the 1,000 post blog candy. How I'm going to choose blog candy for that is that it has to fit into a padded envelope. Not a little one either...an 8 1/2 x 11 envelope. LOTS of different types of things can fit into that size envelope ladies! The only thing I will ask is that you pass on the word about my blog candy and become a follower if you aren't already. Easy, huh?

I should get my limeLIGHT order today that includes almost all of the new Basic Grey Lemonade and June Bug papers and fun accessories! I'm SO excited! Expect a card with those products tomorrow!

Phew, if you aren't completely confused by now...congratulations! I have an e-mail me button over there on the left if you have any questions at all about tomorrow.

Have a super Thursday everyone!
