Happy Early Birthday America!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is one I've created to celebrate America's birthday. While the official celebrations aren't until tomorrow, I wanted to post the card today because like many Americans I'm taking today off, and I will already be enjoying my long weekend by the time this scheduled post goes live.

The card was quick and easy to create, even though I added each of the stars by hand! The sentiments I've added remind us that while we celebrate our Independence and our motherland's birthday, it's equally as important to give thanks to all who made it possible and all who have fought for our freedom.

Card: Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler and Tempting Turquoise
Stamp sets: Work of Art and Good Greetings (retired)
Tools: White Gel Pen (stars)

Thankful Thursday #159 Red White & Blue at DL.ART

Whether or not you're celebrating America's Independence, whatever you're doing this weekend, have a GREAT one! I'll be back on Sunday with my DT creation for the latest challenge over at 613 Avenue Create, so I hope you'll join me then.

For now I'll leave you with one of my favorite patriotic songs.

God bless the USA. God bless all of us!
