Happy 4th!

At Fantabulous Cricut this week, the challenge was "Happy 4th!" (use red, white, and blue on your project). I made a card:

When I think of the 4th of July, I think of bar-b-ques, flags, red, white and blue, freedom and of course, fireworks. I just love fireworks! Seeing the beautiful flashes of colors that go streaming through the black sky. How about you?

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Red, Blue and Fireworks Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge: Stand and Salute Fireworks, page 50 (Base)
Cricut Design Studio
Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter Garnet, Crystal and Lapis Lazuli
Computer Generated Sentiment
Mounting Tape

Work should be slowing down at the end of the week. The bedroom projects are still going on, slow but sure. I did get some flowers planted, but I still have more. Harvested more string beans out of the garden. The tomato plants are getting really big with lots of green tomatoes on the vines. There are blossoms on the cucumbers plants, but no cucumbers yet. There are two small jalapeno peppers that are ready to be picked. Nothing yet on the other peppers or eggplant plants.

Just want to share one more there anything more precious than this?

I don't think Aren't kids great?

Well, I hope you have a great and safe holiday. (I will be working on the 4th...but I think only in the morning). Enjoy...

imagine what you could do....
