Happy Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July!!!!! (since I won't be posting tomorrow, this is early!)

Special thanks to all those who have family members who are serving (who have served) our country here and overseas! Your sacrifices are greatly appreciated!

I used the newest set by Asela for Gina K Designs called The Journey to create this patriotic tribute. It reminded me of kids going to see a parade. (I just need to find a tiny flag for their hands!)

I used some ribbon from the newest Stamp TV kit -Eclectic Summer and some Pure Luxury rocket red and white cardstock.

The star is created using the stars from Lazy Days of Summer (also from Gina K Designs).

Materials used: Stamps-The Journey, Lazy Days of Summer (Gina K Designs); cardstock-red, white (Gina K Designs), blue (SU!); Memento black ink; copic markers; rub-on (Making Memories); ribbon (Gina K Designs); paper piercing tool; red marker (SU!); slit punch (SU!).

Wishing you a happy holiday weekend!!!!

Have you tried the packages of party confetti like a Target in the party/gift wrap section, Party City, or Party Giant type stores. I found an American Flag pachage last year. It had red, white and blue confetti plus tiny paper American flags.

I love how you thought the same thing I thought when I saw this set! It is a perfect card, but then again, you never make a card that isn't perfect!
Hope you have a lovely holiday with family and friends.
