It's hard to believe the the month of June is gone - where did it go so quickly!!??!!  Summer is really speeding right along.  I know a lot of you are ready for celebrating the 4th with family and friends, picnics and fireworks.  A wonderful way to celebrate our freedom and the good and simple things we treasure.  I made 19 Independence Day cards this year!  They were a lot of fun, but I must admit I'm ready to do something that does not include red, white or blue, lol.

Here are just a few of them.  These first two were simple and easy as the goodies on the front were bought already made.  The little hearts and stars are on gold thread and are made of balsa wood, and so is the sign that says, "I Love America".  They both have a kind of "country" feel to them.  I added the rhinestones for a bit of sparkle.


This next one was just layers of different paper.  I added the box cut from an SVG file with my Cricut and put on the heart which is covered in clear glitter and raised with a pop dot.  It is also an SVG file.  Last I added the ribbons, e-z p-z!
