Hi everyone! I love the 4th of July! Its such a fun holiday! Spending time with family, watching fireworks :) Picnics and BBQs! How is all that not fun???

I am blessed (at times) to have two men in my life serving in the US Army. My son is stationed in Alaska at the time. Just home from a trip to Iraq. My brother is doing his first tour in Afghanstan. Knowing these two has mad me totally change the way I feel abot this holiday. This holiday is a time to celebrate all those that fought hard to make us what we are today!!

Ok so of my soap box :) I miss them both dealy!

I crated this card to enter it in cricut cardz challange

If you have not done the challanges with this group you should! They always have such great ideas.

I used the stand and salute cart for everything on this page. I cut the fireworks out and then I just sprinkled them with Embossing stuff and used a heater and embossed them. It worked great!

Hugs to you all!


  1. Hi Melissa,

    What a beautiful card! I LOVE the fireworks. :)

    God bless your son and brother! I will keep them in my prayers. I hope you have a wonderful 4th!

    Thanks so much for playing along with us at the CCC blog!

  2. I just love that firework cut and have used it myself on several cards. I love the sentiments I see on your card-God Bless America and Proud to be an American. My son is a Marine and we're looking forward to having him back state side in the fall. God Bless your family members who are serving. Thanks for sharing your card with us at CCC.
