Happy 4th of July!

I haven't made any patriotic cards in a while, so I thought I'd post the last one I made, which was from QUITE some time ago. It's a spinner card (my first and only), and because it was made for a swap with other Close To My Heart consultants (Hi, Sylvia!), all products used are from CTMH. Boy, this brings back memories...trying to finish these babies up at 3am! I've since learned not to procrastinate (as much -lol).

Whatever this day holds for you, and among the festivities and fireworks, be safe -- and don't forget to thank or say a prayer for those who so bravely fought (and are still fighting) for our nation's freedom. Freedom definitely is not free.

Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!

I love it, I have that set and have never used it, how crazy is that! Maybe this will inspire a scrapbook page.
Ps. You're daughter is a doll, and very talented!

Hi Christi! VERY cute card! I love the idea of the fireworks with the little sparkle spinner on top! Really, really cute. And, I agree with Stacy, your daughter is adorable, and her Lego creation is great! TFS~Barb

What a great card! Very clever to use the "pop" as the spinner.

Chloe looks just like you...adorable! And her Lego creation is awesome! Nice job Chloe! :)

Christi I love your spinner card. How cute is that!

Now as for the sweet picture of your daughter. Oh my gosh, Christi, it brought tears to my eyes. She is so beautiful and joyful and happy. I think anybody who has or is fighting for our country could look at that picture and be proud to say, "Yup that's what I'm fighting for." What a sweetheart. You have a real gem there!
