Happy Fourth of July!

Hello friends!  Happy 4th of July!!

My friends and family will be headed down for the parade soon, but I think my husband and I might sit it out at home this year. Flashing lights and loud sirens just aren't my husband's favorite things since his brain surgery last summer!  So... to get myself in a holiday mood, I'm posting a red, white and blue card instead.  


I watercolored a BIRD image from Power Poppy's Cozy Cupfuls in red, white and BLUE and added a BOW  for this month's Power & Spark challenge and took my color inspiration from the Curtain Call photo.


Have a wonderful day!!

Oh, Tricia, it's hard to believe it's been about a year since your husband's surgery. I praise God for his recovery, but it's good you stayed home. I love your card using this just oh-so-sweet bird image with the cups. It's beautifully watercolored, and I love the layout! Perfect for this month's challenge too. Oh, I could have added mine today, which I will do. Anyway, what a great way to celebrate the Fourth of July! It's perfect! Hugs, sweet friend!
