Happy Independence Week!

I have to start off by saying this is a tearful time of year for me.  My brother passed away July 3rd, 2008.  Since then, the Fourth of July has never been the same.  He will always be in my heart.

Now onto the fun cards!  

Below is a fun Independence Image that Pam at designed! 

I had fun with this one!  After coloring the image, I sponged the background and added glitter to the white of the flag and to some of the flowers.  I then added some wonderful firework stickers.  I just love those! 

Another fun card I did is the American Horse card.  
This one was fun to make also.  I stamped a solid block square stamp. I then took the edge of a red pad and swept across the card to make the stripes.  I distressed the edges with black.  I then stamped the horse image, colored it, cut it out and placed it over the flag.  

I hope you had fun swinging by my blog.  Please be sure to hop along to the other blogs!
