God Bless the USA

Hello my fabulous bloggy friends :) It is a beautiful sunny day here in central Wisconsin FINALLY! I'm a busy little bee here at the Gromala household today getting ready for my littlest guys first birthday this weekend and some out of town guests. I'm super excited to be having one of my best friends that I met in college bring her family for a visit!!! Speaking of excited, yesterday I got happy mail from K Andrew Designs and I just couldn't wait to play lastnight.

I knew exactly what I was going to make because I had been at Archiver's the day before and picked up some of Bo-Bunny's new patriotic line. So naturally because of the holiday spirit I picked some up to go with Kristal's Freedom Isn't Free stamp set. A perfect Match! I'm also very excited to make some parade candy bags for the 6 or 7 kiddo's that we will be taking to the Parade on Saturday morning with this set but you will have to wait to see those. So here is my card....
I used my Amy Chomas Creations Silhouette gel pen holder to draw that wonderful star burst banner from the Silhouette store and then used some yellow stickles to add some bling. I just love how I was able to curve Kristal's stamp to fit in the banner portion :) That adorable little firecracker is a Peachy Keen image that Mrs. Kathy J. sent to me, isn't he just the cutest little stick of dynamite! I will be linking this card up over on the Peachy Keen Blog for their sketch challenge #55 since that is where I got my inspiration from for this card from.

Now don't forget that it is only Wednesday and you have till Saturday at 11:59 PST to link up with Kristal's Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky. This weeks challenge is Get PENNED and Kristal's message is perfect this week!  

Now I hope you all have a Simply Fabulous Day :)
