Happy Birthday USA

It is so exciting being here in our Nation's Capital on her birthday.  Tonight is the big concert  with fireworks on the mall.  We will be there in our Red, White and Blue.  You can watch the concert live on PBS.  It will do your heart good.

How fitting that theCooking With Cricut challenge this week is HAPPY BIRTHDAY USA use red, white and blue in the project.  Here is a card that I mailed to my parents from here in DC to wish them a Happy 4th of July and to tell my sweet Jack and Magnolia  "Hi"!

The base mat on the card is My Minds Eye paper.  It has little red, white and blue stars on it and it is inked in red.  The double labels are cut from the Spellbinders Label # 1.  Both are inked with Antique Lace.bbThe 4th of July is cut from the INDEPENDENCE DAY cartridge.  The flag trim is some I have had for a long time in my stash.  And the little sparkle starts came from Hobby Lobby.  As simple as this card is, I just love it because it focuses on the most important thing... our nation's birthday!!

Please join us at Cooking With Cricut with your red, white and blue project!  Have a Happy 4th of July.
