celebrating Freedom!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  Love holiday weekends with an extra day to hang out with family.  It's over 90 out and with my allergies kicking in,  air conditioning is my friend.  I just can't enjoy the outdoors while my head is plugged or I'm sneezing constantly,  LOL!    I love that my craft desk faces the window and I can enjoy watching the birds at the bird feeder and see the sunshine.   It's probably as close as I'm getting to outside this weekend. 

This week's challenge over at Paper Secrets CYAO16 card challenge was to choose your own sketch, use red, white & blue and add stars.   It worked for me because I had printed out the Deconstructed Sketch No. 53 and found some cute BoBunny papers for the holiday weekend.  

I do want to remember those who serve our Country.   It's so easy to think this is just an extra day off work but it's really like the 4th of July,  a great time to remember how thankful we are for Freedom!   I hope you enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend!   Be Safe,  Stay Inspired!  

Supplies:   CTMH Cardstock Outdoor Denim,  BoBunny Liberty DSP,  Stamps:  CTMH c1364 TLC, D1289 July Word Puzzle, D1321 Festivities,  CTMH Ink Cranberry, Black,  Darice Embossing Folder, CM Star Punch,  SU! Red Organdy Ribbon,  Misc Star Eyelets
