Good Satruday morning! Are you ready to celebrate this weekend? The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays (I think I say that about alot of holidays, though) and I love to decorate for the occasion. Here is one of my favorite decorations:
My sister made this for me one Christmas. It says "To everything there is a season". The fun thing is that the painted wooden flag in the middle is held on by velcro so you can change out the center piece every season/holiday along with the ribbon that holds the handle on. I found this flag last year at Michaels and I love it with my red/white striped ribbon.
It is, of course, just as fun to craft for this holiday and today I have a patriotic card to share with you.
The stamps I used for this card are from Papertrey Ink (Up,Up,and Away and Friendship Jar) except for the fireworks which is the "sparkler" image from Amuse. I inked the edges of everything with my tea dye duo (PTI) to make it look a little vintage. I am going to enter this card in Ted's Happily Ever Challenged #8-Old Glory challenge. If you would like to play along, visit Ted at happilyevercrafter.com I hope you all have a fabulous holiday and I want to say Thank You to all those who defend and protect our freedom!
