Happy Fourth of July

Hi Crafty Friends,
Happy 4th of July! I have a FABULOUS FOURTH card for you using Paper Nest Dolls Superstar Ellie! I colored her up in Red, White, and Blue! I hope you are enjoying some time off and an outdoor BBQ today! I was inspired by my niece and nephew's RWB outfits below.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you watch fireworks on the fourth?
A: Me? We used to go downtown Chicago and watch them every year but I haven't seen fireworks in probably 5+ years

  1. Such cute photos and card.
    I love fireworks and I watch it whenever I can.

  2. I love the photos. So cute. And your patriotic colors are great. We have always watched the big fireworks from our picnic at a park, but since you know what, they aren't doing it. This year we will be going to 2 parties, and people will be lighting fireworks at the parties. I'm not feeling very patriotic these days (I am usually the most patriotic person you can find!).

  3. Happy Fourth of July dearest Meghan! I love your card and what little cuties those two are in the photos. I read your comment to Dudley and he says to tell Maddie she has to add a little woof or happy yelp in at every 360 degrees she spins! The challenge is on! Laughing here :)

  4. Happy 4th! Cute card and darling pics!
    I love the fireworks, but not planning to see them this year. Best fireworks I have ever seen were many years back when we watched them from the beach at Lake Tahoe.

  5. I'm getting too old and creaky to go
    out into a field to watch fireworks.
    I can hear plenty of them in my
    LR (every night since Friday).
    The little girl is darling.
    Love those glasses and the way she's
    standing. thanks for sharing

  6. Happy July 4th Meghan! Those photos of your niece and nephew are so darn cute. We usually just watch fireworks from a distance, because my kids don't like the loud noise, but we always have sparklers.

  7. Adorable photos and a cute card! I love 4th of July and we used to go out and watch them at festivals or at the beach but for the last 10 years, we host a party at home and have our own fireworks display.

  8. Such sweet photo and love your card!
    My niece lived in America and sent me some pics of firework celebrating in America!

  9. Wow!!! Stunning and amazing card. Love the image and background! Great work.
    I love the fireworks, but usually I can watch them only on new year night.

  11. Precious card. Love the color switch on the socks. Such cute little firecrackers!! Fireworks are our favorite date night! We hit them all, chairs on a tarp, a sub and, and long long walks along the display area...the boardwalk, park or carnival. We hit every one we can.

  12. Cute and festive card and photos. I don't like crowds but sometimes we can see them from our house or someone sets them off in the neighborhood.
