In the USA bar-b-ques and picnics are common for the Fourth of July. They're usually followed by watching fireworks. It's usually a fun day unless the weather fails to cooperate.
The biggest problem I've run into is that sooo many people I know (including my husband) have 4th of July birthdays that it's often impossible to celebrate with them all at the same time.
So I've got to get cracking and make some 4th of July birthday cards. This one is not for hubby, I prefer to give him something a little less girly.
Here's the deets:
stamp - Mo Mannings "Waiting for the Parade" digi
ink - hp printer
paper - Bazzill "Admiral" and "African Daisy" cs; October Afternoon "Boarding Pass" for the striped paper and "5 & Dime" for the embroidery design paper and "Sidewalks" for the gingham checked paper
miscellaneous - copics; My Favorite Things "Circle" "Banner" and "Star Border" die-namics; Spellbinder's "Picot Edge Circles" die; star mini bards; blue bling; baker's twine; USA charm; white gel pen for polka dots; machine stitching
Here's the challenges:
Bronte and Bella's #141 - Straight from the Heart (when it's hand crafted it's straight from the heart)
Terrifically Thrilling Thursday - Stars, Stripes and Sparkle
Paper Play - Flags, Pennants and Banners
Delightful - Celebration
Cute Card Thursday #223 - Patriotic
