PBSC / Proud mum / Singalong Saturday

Well it is another gorgeous day today, we are having a great summer so far. I would just like to wish everyone a happy 4th of July .... hope all our friends across the pond have a wonderful day of celebrations.
The theme on Penny Black today is red white and blue .... so I hope you can all join in with us.

Now I actually struggled with this .... can you believe I have no red and blue papers ... shocking!!!! So I spent ages looking and looking and in the end decided to use some PP papers and used red card to border everything.

These little mice look so happy awwwww how sweet, lol. I have used my lovely new MS Valentine punch and Tracy at DTDF now has them in stock. The DT have outdone themselves again this week, the cards are just fabulous so please pay thema visit.

Now before I give you your song for today I have to be the proud mummy! My son and his friends have a band called Not For Rental and they recorded their first songs this week. They now have a page on Facebook so I would love it if you could become a fan of their page and have a little listen to their songs (my fave is Sit back and relax). They wrote everything themselves and it is lovely to see a bunch of teenagers being creative.
And now for your singalong song ..... considering it is Independance Day this seemed appropriate ..... hope you enjoy it!

Fabulous card Marcea, this image is so darn cute and beautifully coloured. I am so jealous you are playing with the valentine punch as I am still waiting for mine to arrive. Your flowers are gorgeous and I apologise now as I forgot to leave you a comment this morning - was too engrossed in Ryan singing!
Have a lovely weekend, we are sweltering as it is 40 in the shade.
