Happy Independence Day!!

Happy 4th of July!!

My collection of stamps doesn't include much for the 4th of July.  What to do, what to do.  I decided to use the tree from Penny Black's "Love Birds" set and decorate it with stars!

I stamped the tree onto grey patterned paper and embossed it with white.  I colored the 13 little wooden stars with Copic markers to add the necessary red and blue.  And one can never go wrong with a red gingham bow!

I am actually with family in Milwaukee for this holiday.  We will celebrate our freedoms and be mindful of those who sacrificed that we might enjoy our American lifestyle.  I hope you are having an enjoyable holiday and that it includes some time with people you love!!
