This card was made for the Stampotique Designers Challenge #10. The topic was appropriately titled "FREEDOM", or rather "What does Freedom mean to you"? All these Stampotique girl stamps (and the boy stamps too for that matter) made by Daniel Torrente & Jill Penney have a gothic/alternative type style of dressing. So, I assumed what FREEDOM means to Linda here is that she can wear what she wants and look however she wants.

I hope everyone who celebrates Independence Day had a safe and wonderful 4th of July. I had a very relaxing, easy day with family & friends by the pool all day eating great BBQ & finger food. And luckily for us it wasn't the usual 115 degree weather like it normally is here on the 4th in Arizona, we ended up having a big cool down, it was about 104 degrees. We almost had to get out our coats
(ha-ha).

  7. 104 degrees! And we thought it was hot here last week - only around 80! But you have to bear in mind that we Brits are not used to very hot temperatures!! I love your take on freedom - great idea and the whole image is FAB... is that the White House in the background?

    what a wonderful collage you have made! perfection! I don't know how you stand the 115 degree heat! We are complaining about 95 here!
    Daughter is in Phoenix...since February 16. She misses the "rain" here in Michigan...said it hasn't rained for weeks there. She is a fair skinned lass like her Mama so I don't think she does the heat well.
    Stay cool...we have another scorcher today!
