Hooray for the Red, White and Blue



Happy Birthday U.S.A!!
The 4th of july is a great time to remember ALL of our Veterans. And don't forget to STAND at the parade! They deserve at least that.

I made a few cards for some of my friends. They were made with images that I had colored and had sitting around in a box. Yes! I have tons like that, lol When I don't feel well sometimes the
coloring is all I can do so...

I know this first one is a coloring page - Garfield- how cute he is. I decided to make the stars
sparkly. the background paper was made with TAC set- "God bless America" and a star stamp, with markers. The senti inside: I want you... to remember why we have our freedom! happy 4th

This next card was a sponsor we had at For Fun, then my computers hard drive broke. The image is from Digi Doodles. He is too funny- we had a neighbor who has a doxie and he thought he was a BIG boy, lol so this was funny to me- hes snarling. So inside I wrote: GRRRRR...
Just try to make these colors run! Happy 4th.
He was just too cute.

This card. I have no idea where the heart came from. It said on the back then I glued it down so... I know I can be such a flake. The USA is from that "God bless America" set from TAC. Nice and simple. I need to make an inside for it. I'm thinking something- "my heart beats for the red, white and blue" whatcha think?
I have looked for challenges to enter this in. LOTS of red,white and blue ones to enter. so here are some:
Fairy Knoll a past sponsor at For Fun You can find some freebies here too.

Ok I won't get greedy! LOL. I just like so many of the challenge blogs that are out there. You can check them out at Feline Playful so don't forget to check it out.

Well if you don't celebrate the 4th then have a great weekend. If you do- have a "blast" lol! And enjoy the extra day for the weekend.
Hugs to all.
