Feeling HOT HOT HOT!!! and Patriotic too!

It's a Double posting day and I hope you have a fabulous Memorial Day (or Bank Holiday) planned!
My hubby is away on a Scout camp so I'm on grill duty! LOL
I have a very Patriotic card for you today.
Although I live in Texas I was born and raised in Nottingham England and lived there for 28 years and my heart will always be there. But one thing the UK and the US share are the colors of their flag, Red, White and Blue so on US Holidays I can always be transported home in my heart right away. So today's card fills both sides of the Atlantic :)

This card fits with the following challenges:

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Summertime
Just Magnolia - Hot and Spicy
Magnolia Birthday Bash - Sketch
Magnolia Down Under - Flowers
Crafty Creations - Favorite stamp (I couldn't choose one so I had to just choose a Tilda as they are what really got me into stamping)
Stampin With Dragon - Summer
Cupcake Craft - Summer Delights
For Fun - Masking
Scrap Stamp and Doodle - Red White and Blue
Ann's Creative Nook - Red White and Blue
No Time To Stamp - Colors of your flag. Well although I've been in the USA for 13 years now my home country is Great Britain and our flag is the Union Jack and it's Red, White and Blue like the Stars and Stripes!
Doodle Palace - Colors of Your Flag
Res Q - Red, White and Blue
Color Chef - Light Blue, Dark Blue, Red and White
Friends Having Fun - Colors and Feel of Memorial Day

Card Recipe:
Image - Tilda with Ice Cream and Garden Park by Alota Rubber Stamps
Paper - Stash
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment - Target $1 spot
Brads - The Paper Studio

Couldn't you just do with an Ice Cream?

Here are the Copic's I used on this card.

Have a fabulous rest of your Memorial Day or Bank Holiday Monday if you are in the UK!

What a darling card! Your coloring is just gorgeous! What a wonderful collection of copics you have! I bet you do get homesick. There is no place like home, that doesn't change no matter where you move.
It is incrediable to me that you can cover so many challenges with one card! You are so good girl!
I have been down for the last week or so. I need to get busy and make some cards. You put me to shame!LOL!

Have a wonderful weekend.
