A Party and Storybook Friends

I'm a little late in posting this morning.  Had a little of this going on last night until the wee hours.

 Our 4th of July block party.  So much fun, SO many fireworks, great food and friends and to top it off, beautiful weather!  We live in the cul-de-sac next to our park, so the party is always at our house. *Ü*

 Nicholas had to test the bounce house first to make sure it was 'safe' for the kids!  Some,things you never outgrow!

Getting the decorations up for the BBQ.

 Letting the kids do the smaller fireworks before the professionals- aka dads, take over. What is it about men and fire??? 

 I do have some stamping to show you!  These are the third set of cards I made with the Storytime Friends stamp set.  I think pocket cards are probably my most favorite style of cards.  Every time I make them, I just love how they look.  Must be that library or office supply fascination I have!

Cardstock:  Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Storytime Designer Series Paper
Stamp Set:  Storybook Friends
Accessories:  Oval Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Wild Wasabi Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Corner Rounder
