Happy Friday!  I'm so looking forward to the long weekend.  My brother is here from out of town, Mark gets Monday off work, and it's looking to be a great 4th of July weekend around these parts!  To get myself in the spirit, I cooked up a little 4th of July card last night using the new American Hero set.

I started by stamping the 4th of July stamp on a Nestabilities star, then stamping the little stripey star and piecing it over the outline star.  For the little framey thing, I cut a 4" square, then scored at 1/4" and 3/8" on all sides and cut out the extra parts.  I stamped the center of it with the trio of stars in Antique Linen, then added four little square mosaic tiles to set accent the corners.  The bow is some of my favorite polka dot ribbon and I stamped, colored and cut out three little firecrackers to "burst" out of the bow.

Okay, that's my chatter for today.  I hope you all have a happy and safe weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
