HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!  What are you doing to celebrate our country's birthday today? 

I decided to share my patriotism today by flying a flag!

This card uses the Floating Strips technique.  The red stripes and the Night of Navy star field are adhered to a Window Sheet.  I thought it gave the impression of the flag floating in the breeze, so it seemed like a good technique for this card.  What do you think?

However, I was not about to make 50 tiny little stars!  I love my country and consider myself patriotic, but I am not crazy!  Making 50 tiny stars didn't sound like fun, so how about if you just pretend that each one of my stars represents 10 states!  

I used a die from Sentiment Silhouettes Dies to make the stars.  Seems a little weird that the dies that go with Charming Sentiments include stars, but there are a few handy little dies in that set.  If you would like more details about those dies, check it out in the Product List below.

The bundle I am featuring this week is the fun set called Brewed For You.  This bundle is a great one to have if you find it challenging to make masculine cards.  What American male wouldn't appreciate this card?  Fourth of July celebrations and beer go together like baseball and apple pie, right?   Or is that baseball and hot dogs?  Well, you can have hot dogs for Fourth of July celebrations, too!  (but I digress...)

Wouldn't you think that a stamp set called "Brewed for You" would have a "Cheers" sentiment stamp in it?  Nope, so I had to go in search of one, and I found it in the Lovely & Lasting Stamp set! Don't get me wrong, there are some very nice sentiments in the Brewed for You set, but I wanted something simple and small so that it didn't cover up too much of my pretty flag.

On the inside I just put another brewski.  

I hope you have time to relax with your favorite beverage this Fourth of July Holiday!  Enjoy your day and remember that even with all our challenges we are blessed to live in the Good Old USA!
