Hurray for the Red, White and Blue


I have a sweet friend whose shares a birthday with our great nation.

I usually try to keep with the Red, White and Blue theme for her birthday cards.

Wish you could see the sparkle on the flower.  I winked it!

Addicted to CAS has a new challenge
I used the colors from out flag.


They're going DOTTY at
Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

and since I stamped all the design on this card,
it can go over to

I hope you have a happy and safe 4th of July in the US.


I'm glad you stopped by.

Enjoy!

You constantly amaze me, with how your eyes see stamps. Brilliant creativity to see this flower spray and think "Fireworks", but it's beautiful, and just perfect. LOVE it! Hope you & Mr. B have a wonderful evening, and hope the littles are there to enjoy the fireworks display. Big hugs & TFS.

Bonnie, what a great idea of using nontraditional image and combining it with the Patriotic colour scheme. Thanks for sharing with us. -Sweet Kobylkin, ATCAS

This is so neat! This year I was trying to make some 4th of July cards and noticed that I don't have many stamps to celebrate the holiday with. But you prove that they don't have to be Independence Day themed!
