Happy Friday! Enjoying the Holiday?

     My holiday was a wee bit delayed, around here.  DH was away on a guys 5 day fishing trip, and just got home from VA, last evening.  Sooooo, I am planning on some cooking on the grill, and fun times!

     I could not let the week go by without a Unity post!  Here is my offering for Friends with Flair for this week.  I used the June KOM, "Love the Little Things". 

 
     The stars strip was created by sponging some chalk ink on a Crafter's Workshop stencil.  I used the same ink  (Blue Iris) to stamp this great bike image from the kit, and cut it out with a SB oval die.  My red background was created with the really cool background stamp that was included in the kit and bleach.  Love that technique, when you get it working right!  I found these red, white and blue medallions in my stash, as well as this stitched ribbon and flag pick.  Throw in a couple of little gems, and that is my patriotic, summer card!

     I would also like to enter this over at Simon Says Stamp, for their Patriotic Challenge.

     I also wanted to share my cute little GS, all dressed for the holiday.  He is losing his hair a bit, and has the peelies, but is growing like a weed! 

    
     That's it for me.  Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!

Your card is a terrific patriotic card with all the important parts. I have that same stencil and have yet to use it successfully. I will have to take it out again and make another attempt at sponging it. Your little guy is sweet as can be. Bless you and your family. Enjoy your cookout.
