Stars and Stripes

Hello there ladies,

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  This weekend I spent most of my time in the garden which needed some serious weeding!  It’s a thankless job don’t ya think, but one that needs to be done nonetheless.  We have been experiencing some fantastic weather here but this afternoon Mother Nature decided to play a trick on us… black clouds rolled in and we had a wicked thunder and lighting storm.  It was short-lived but it actually helped to cut some of the humidity we have been experiencing which I am quite thankful for.

In between the rain drops I decided to try my hand at this week’s JustRite Challenge which is: “Stars & Stripes

I really look forward to the JustRite Friday Challenges and all of the wonderful inspiration that is posted each and every week!   Well, enough of my rambling…

Here is my card, when I thought of the 4th of July, I immediately thought of fireworks, so I decided to incorporate one into my card!  I also have been anxious to use my new “Summer Words” Stamp set.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

JustRite Friday Challenge #076 – “Stars & Stripes”

Joan’s Gardens Weekly Challenge #24


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  I hope you come back again soon,
