In a few days we will be celebrating the 4th of July. I wanted to create a card for this occasion. As I was looking to find new sponsors I came across a sight named Sassy Cheryl's . She has the sweetest images. Judi and I fell in love with them. So we decided to each buy an image to make a card.
I wasn't sure what I was going to do for a sketch so I started from scratch as if I were designing it on the computer for Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I wanted to use my new deckle nestie that I bought about a month ago. I also bought a new Cuttlebug embossing plate with the stars. It was so much fun seeing how this embossed. The stars are just so fun.
I have fond memories as a child celebrating the fourth of July with my family. Our Bountiful park always had consession stands there. Before going to the park we watched a parade. I also continued my celebrations at the same park as my children grew up. When the childern were older we would go to the junior high school on the hill and take a picnic and watch the fireworks. I will always cherish those sweet memories.
I am very thankful for my freedoms and for a God who watches over us and our country. I hope you will all have a enjoyable 4th and celebrate it with the ones you cherish and love.
