Paper Pretties #316 - red/white/blue 4th of July inspired

Wednesday June 25, 2014
OH my it's almost that time of year again.. 4th of July
I am not a fan of fireworks. I say it yearly. With living in the country and Weyerhaeuser country I know what they light off is not always family safety fireworks. When it shakes the windows and your neighbor is quite far away you cant tell me its a legal piece. Also the dry grasses that are around.. I just am not a fan. I don't mind going out to see them at a site that knows what they are doing that is fun.
I used the sweet holiday stamp set and sentiment. I have been having fun using them. It comes with a couple of different cupcakes in the set and I have used the cupcake but taken the top little piece off of it on a few cards and just used the pretty cupcake for a different card and theme. Very optional set. For the background I just cut various papers and adhered them to a piece of white card stock then cut it down to the size I wanted. I have been doing this more often. Really helps to use up those scraps laying around that you just cant throw away. Give it a try. Cut different widths and make your own background.

Great card, Billie! Love all those papers! Super!
I'm with you on the fireworks....not a big fan. Probably because the dogs shiver and shake in fear all night, making sleep impossible for anyone in the house. lol! That, and I've seen too many accidents involving them!

I love this card. The cupcake and papers are wonderful and I love your background papers like that and the stars up the side. So darned cute. I live in Phoenix, AZ and we're not up over 107 degrees each day. Our brush is all dried out and I hate fireworks knowing we're going to have fires every single time something hot lands in a field with dry brush. So, why in the world are fireworks allowed since fires are so predictable from them? Back to your card...this is simply adorable. That little rocket...just too darn cute. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Sentiments this week for our summer/summer colors challenge and I hope to see your art work in upcoming challenges! Hugs, Gail
