"May The 4th Be With You"

Hello Viewers, Friends, Visitors and Followers.
It's another days journey and we are looking forward to making a difference in someone's life today.
Will you join us in making this Wednesday, May 4th special for someone you know or someone you admire.
Star Wars fans have something to celebrate today....so go forth and enjoy.
If you are into orange peels...today is for you also...Candied Orange Peels are a boiled, sliced and sugared treat.  They are very popular with chefs and bakers as well as often used during the holidays in cookies, fruitcakes and other snacks.
If you don't like star wars or orange peels, how about the birds....orange juice...  or this one... Observed annually on May 4th, National Renewal Day was created for new beginnings.  National Renewal Day is meant to reinvigorate us after a long winter.  Whether we choose to refresh our souls or replace our old rugs with new, we are to set to work polishing up our state of being.
If you are still not interested in those four, here are two more:  National Weather Observers Day is an annual designation on May 4th.  This special day is for the people who enjoy watching and observing the weather.  National Bike to School Day was created to provide an opportunity for schools across the nation to join together to celebrate the energy of National Bike Month.
All in all, may the fourth of May be with you no matter how you celebrate.
I'm just having some fun with a sketch I saw on a site this morning and I'm just giving it a try:
 

This "hello" card just reminds me of Spring.  The flowers are blooming and bugs are coming out to play.  You don't really want to harm them, so you catch them in a net, let the children swing them in the air and finally release them back into the environment.
To make this "hello" card:
cardstock: Neenah white and Recollection black;  The polka dot red & white piece came from Colorbok
black netting was used behind the circle cut out.  ***circle was cut with Our Daily Bread designs double stitched circle die.
stickers: Jolee
"hello" was cut using friendship words script from Sizzix thinlits by Tim Holtz alterations



This second card was made using the following;
cardstock: Neenah white; Recollection black and  Colobok (red & white polka dot)
embellishments: camera and sentiment from K&Company Kelly Panacci layered accents

Go forth and conquer something nice today.  May it be May 4, 2016 – NATIONAL STAR WARS DAY – NATIONAL CANDIED ORANGE PEEL DAY – BIRD DAY – NATIONAL ORANGE JUICE DAY – NATIONAL RENEWAL DAY – NATIONAL WEATHER OBSERVERS DAY – NATIONAL BIKE TO SCHOOL DAY.

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
