Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop - Day 1

We're so happy you could join us for the 
Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop!!  

If you've hopped along from the super talented DIANA then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Lisa's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)...

What better way to show how fortunate we are to have our freedom.  And to thank the wonderful men and woman and their families for the sacrifices they make so we can continue to enjoy that freedom! 

My card is a typical A2 sized card.  I am so proud of myself all of my paper came from my scrap box including the base.  I ran the blue paper through the cuttlebug with the Stars Embossing folder.  My super cute image is from Elmo & Friends Holiday Cart.  he was cut at 3 inches and includes all the layers.  Don't you just love Elmo!  My awesome sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Art Stamps "Sweet July".  This is such a great set!  I used SU Real Red to stamp my sentiment.  My ribbon is from Michaels.  

Now you can head over to the talented Jessie to see what she has for your viewing pleasure!
