Happy 4th of July!!!

Hi, everybody!! If you live in the U.S., you are probably celebrating our nation's independence in some fashion today. Many will go to the lake or the beach. Others will spend time with family and friends over barbecue and cold beer. As for me, I'm spending the day crafting! Later, I plan to pack some boxes and do some cleaning and when everything is done, I'll fall on the sofa and watch television this evening.

Today, I have for you a parade to commemorate this important holiday!! I made a card for Independence Day with one of the adorable new images from Krista Smith at Saturated Canary. It is called, quite simply, "Parade". I thought it was the perfect thing for today.

Isn't this the cutest thing evah? I paper pieced the cute little girl's top to add a little more dimension. This is one of the digi stamps in Krista's latest release. If you haven't seen them, you must go here and have a look! They are a delight to color... so much so in fact that I have already colored every single one of them; some twice! I'll have a bunch of new projects to show you as soon as I get them all made.

This coming weekend, there will be a lot going on at Kenny K's Krafty Krew. In addition to a brand new challenge hosted by Team A (that's my team!), the new design team will host it's first blog hop and all of the designers from both teams will present inspirational projects in celebration of the 2nd anniversary of Kenny K's Krafty Challenges! Wooo hooo!  And you should hear about the grand prize!!! You won't want to miss this one, folks!

Okay, I'm already late getting this posted so I'll stop here and get back on my other projects.  Please have a safe and happy 4th and if you're anywhere besides the U.S., have a lovely Wednesday! Until next time...

Happy crafting!
