Happy 4th of July 2012


Can you believe this year is half over already?  July 4th - a day to celebrate our nation's birthday.  Sometimes I wonder what our forefathers would think of what our nation has become these days.  Brings shivers to my spine!  But.....we still have one so that gives way to Celebrate Her Birthday!

This is the tag design that Tim Holtz came up with for his July tag.  He used his big Statue Of Liberty stamp that I don't have so I opted for my smaller Crafty Secrets stamp.  I also used the bigger #4.  The technique he used was a bit difficult to get just right as far as the 'fireworks' go.  I don't know how many pieces he tried before he was satisfied with his results but I was up to #3 so I quit.  I also made a little flag embelly from his mini mover-shaper flag.  I made some for earrings too that I wore to work yesterday, everyone loved them, lol!

Hope you are with loved ones and giving thanks for what you do have!
                  HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!
