Fourth of July is Friday this week and so I’m thinking Red, White and Blue. How about you? So today’s card has a patriotic feel today.
This card can be easily made into any occasion since I’ve used the sentiment from the And Many More stamp set. And Many More is one of our new sets that contain 23 sentiments that work perfectly with our Word Window Punch. What a great deal, right? And this one set covers pretty much any occasion you can think of through out the year!
Did you notice the pop of gold on this card? Well it is our Gold Sequin Trim (132983).
Just pull a few off the string and adhere. Sooo easy to do! And great news the Gold Sequin Trim is part of this week’s Weekly Deals – so why not check it out along with the other items too?
NEW Weekly Deals start Today!
On a personal note – I’ve spent the day yesterday processing goodies from the garden and so I didn’t get to post. I got my first batch of summer squash in the freezer along with some other items I baked using the blueberries we picked.
I’ve got three strainers this size and with all the rain we’ve had it has been tough to pick at times. A good problem to have for sure. LOL Unfortunately our blueberries are bursting from all the rain – they just don’t seem to be able to grow as fast as they need to, so they end up splitting which is kind of a bummer.
So as a special treat I’ve got another recipe for you Blueberry lovers. This one is a favorite of mine. Light and cool – give it a try and see what you think. Why you could even put strawberries on the top for a red, white, blue look for the 4th!
When put into a clear bowl – it is rather pretty. I’m sorry to say I had a hard time getting a good picture of that and this one was the best I could do. Hopefully you get the idea.
