Its a Block Party!

I have been in such a Patriotic mood lately...and I love 4th of July celebrations...cookouts, fireworks, and friends! So today I dressed up cute little Summer Time Gidget for a hop to a July 4th Pool Party! We are spotlighting Gidget and Summer Time Todd at by LORi Designs today, so be sure to hop around and see what all the DT has created with this cutie pie :)

Here's Gidget up close. She's even in a patriotic sut to match the Black Party pp from Bo Bunny.

For my card this week I wanted to try a Center Step card because I had never done one. Easy as Hot Apple Pie...with score-pal and a great trimmer! Here's the link to the tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers if you want to try one. Here's what it looks like from the side:

My sentiment at the bottom is from Patriotic Pair by Stampendous! And I added glitter around all the stars and the main panel using Spica glitter pens in Lipstick, green, and Blue.

My stars were punched with the 2 SU! star punches, because I couldn't find all my Star nestabilities, urgh!
