Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to my American friends! Again, this was a super quick card I put together before dashing off to Arizona. I used today's sketch from The Sweet Stop, as well as a digi image from a digi stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Celebrate America. Can I just say once again that if you haven't tried digi stamps, you should? The newest digi set called Sweet as Pie by Tami Mayberry for SNSS is posted on the front page... just scroll down and you'll see it. And while you're there, be sure to check out this month's special sale and gift(s) with purchase, Christmas in July. You must also check out the Firecracker Festival going on during the month of July.

When I get home, I'll be featuring some cards made with the ultra sweet "gift with purchase" digi stamps you can get from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this month. I'll be ready to think snow after all this heat. Speaking of which, not only is it super hot here in AZ, but now the monsoons have rolled in so it's humid. Yay! I just love free sauna's... NOT. {LOL} Of course, on the plus side, maybe it'll steam off some pounds...

Okay, enough complaining about the heat. I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July, however you choose to spend it. Ours will be pretty low key. The only fireworks we'll see (i.e., little poppers and such we bought at Target) will be those Avery and Paul set off in the street. But we'll have good eats beforehand, and hopefully a bit of scrapbooking for me this afternoon, so it's all good!

God Bless America!

Wishing you a VERY happy 4th of July dear friend! Love your card - so fun and just right for the occasion. I have fond memories of seeing fireworks for sale on the side of the road - totally illegal here - LOL!!! And of course the amazing spectacular that IS 4th of July!

BTW - Have used my first digi image - you are too much of an enabler - and I'm sooo easily enabled - LOL!! Will be posting it soon!
