Happy 4th of July

Good Monday morning to you and Happy 4th of July.  A number of years ago today (I am not about to tell you how many), my mother celebrated her "independence" from carrying me for nine months.  Apparently I didn't want anyone having a party/picnic without me and that includes the doctor who delivered me.

Anyway, today I wanted to show you a card I made for one of my daughter's friends who happens to share the same birthdate with me.  I am also entering this one in the Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge which is to make a patriotic card.

To make the fireworks, I second generation stamped the small dandelion image from the CTMH Treasures stamp set in Grey Wool ink and then went over it with my Sakura clear gitter pen.  I don't know if it is showing, up but I used the PTI Linen impression plate for the base of the card.

Hope you call have a safe 4th and remember all those men and women in service who fight for our freedom and independence everyday (THANK YOU).
