Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop - Old Glory!

Today I'm participating in the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop - the Theme is Old Glory.

I used stamps from two TE sets on my card - A Year of Sweets 2 and A Year of Sweet Sentiments.  I also used the Banner Day Die for my sentiment and Tiny Twinkles on the sentiment and fireworks.  I also added some dazzling diamonds to my fireworks so they look really sparkly IRL - I think you can see it a little bit on my pic.

Cuppie has hiked to the top of the hill to get a really good view of the fireworks this year AND he's waving Old Glory!!

Wishing an early Happy 4th of July to everyone in the US !  The long weekend will be here soooooon!!!
