Isn't it wonderful?  We finally have summer, sunshine, warm air, even hot, all welcome here!  Until the first official day of summer we were still cool, gray, and rainy.  I am SO thankful for the change!

I have a birthday card to share today, another box card.  I love these, so much fun to make!

 I used a variety of things besides things I cut on my Cameo for this because I'm trying to use my stash as often as possible this summer.  So a punch out that is more than 10 years old (oops!) and stickers and cardboard shapes and everything I could find.
 One thing I have noticed about other box cards is that while I like to stuff mine full, many are much less stuffed.  And easier to mail, for sure!  But I still like the way this turned out.
Now, one more thing!  We spent the week of July 4 in Glacier Park.  One of the highlights for the group (my husband, our daughter and 3 friends, and a close friend from here in Sunburst) was to ride the Zip Lines at Big Mountain Ski Resort near Whitefish, Montana.  This is a series of 7 zip lines with hikes in between, so you had better be sure you want to do this!  They had a blast, so I hope I can post the video here to share!  No, I didn't go.  I'm not fond of heights, but I will consider it next time now that I've seen how it works.

Doesn't that look like fun?  Well, that or lunacy, depending on your point of view!

Hope your July will be relaxing and truly summer!
