Proud to Be an American!!!

Good Morning! Hard to believe that July is just a day away, and the 4th of July is just a few days away! I love the 4th of July, as it's a very special time here in our hometown. We have a sizeable parade and then fireworks over the water down by the park by the bay and it draws more than a thousand to our little quaint town. Can you tell that I'm enthralled by Laurie Wilson's Doodle Pantry "Ants Line"??? I just cannot get enough of those little guys...they are so much fun to create with and always crack me up...LOL. This image is called "Firecracker Bugs", and is available at Clear Dollar Stamps for purchase.

Below, is a photo of the card interior, left blank for personalizing or that special patriotic stamp at the time I get ready to mail it. Remember, you can always right-click on any photo to get a larger view of the card.

See you back here on July 5th for Laurie Wilson's Clearly Delightful Monthly Challenge, sponsored by Doodle Pantry, when Laurie will have a FREE DIGI STAMP, just for participating in the challenge! Hope to see you there! Oh! And I'd be remiss if I overlooked sharing a little news with you, if you are a Doodle Pantry fan. Laurie has created a new group over at the Crafters Digital Art Center (CDAC) where you can upload your creations that you made using Doodle Pantry images and join in on the fun discussions we have! I think that you'll find Crafter's Digital Art Center (CDAC) a small community where the group leaders are more involved in all the community participation. Give it a try! See you in a few days and as always, thank you for taking time to visit me! It is such an encouragement!!
