Happy 4th!

One of the highlights of summer is 4th of July fireworks.  I always look forward to seeing them.  Down here in Florida if you make the trip to Orlando you can fireworks any day of the year and I was in Orlando just a few days ago and did see some fireworks but I'm still looking forward to the 4th.  It's also the  my hubby's birthday and my good friend Eileen's too so there's lots of reasons for me to celebrate.  That also means I need a couple birthday cards, guess I'm half way there and I better get hopping with the other half.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Taylored Expressions "A Year of Sweets 2"
ink - Versamark and Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - MFT "Sweet Tooth", "Sno Cone" and "Red Hot" cs; Stampin' Up Subtle dsp; black scrap
miscellaneous - copics; gold, red and blue embossing powder; SU ribbon; dew drops; burlap twine; stickles

Here's the challenges:
Taylored Expressions TESC141 - sketch
Delightful Inspirations - Red, White and Blue and/or Christmas too
Secret Crafter #140 - Embossing
Polka Doodles - week 25 - Stashbox stamps, Red, White and Blue
Fairy Tale #18 - America
Moving Along With the Times - #104 - Clean and Simple
Craft Us Crazy #11 - Red, White and Blue and/or Summer Fun
I Heart Ribbon #5 - linen thread and hemp
Terrifically Thrilling Thursday - Stars and Stripes
Paper Variety - Summer
