She's a Grand Ole' Flag

"...she's a high flyin' flag and forever in peace may she wave.  She's the emblem of, the land I love, the home of the free and the brave.  Every heart beats true for the Red, White and Blue ..." 

 Happy, Happy July 4th!   I hope you're having a fun and relaxing holiday.   It's been great here.   Last night we went to see fireworks in our hometown and today has been a rest and relax kind of day.  Of course, for me that meant time to play with stamps and paper :)   Always a good time for that!  

This card sketch is this week's CPS 272 sketch challenge.  It was perfect for my Patriotic card for the H2H Challenge and the Perfect Sentiments Challenge this week and of course to celebrate our Nation's Birthday!  Definitely counting Lucky Stars! 

Supplies:  CTMH CS Outdoor Denim,  Cranberry, Honey, White,  CTMH Stamps c1311 Lucky Stars,  CTMH Ink Outdoor Denim, Cranberry, Honey,  CTMH Organdy White Ribbon,  CTMH Glitz Glitter,  CTMH Sparkles,  Darice Stars Emboss Folder

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
