It's a 4th of July Blog Hop and it's gonna be GREAT! {p.s. Prizes are to be won. Just say'n}

Yes, my friends, today I am joining with a fabulous group of talented card makers for a super fun summer themed/ 4th of July blog hop! And there are lots of great prizes to be won, too, so be sure to hop along and be inspired by these WONDERFUL creations! If you came from Lee's Blog you are well on your way! If not, hop on over to Taylor's blog to get started on this fun adventure!

I created a super fun, glittery, and totally festive 4th of July card using the Skipping Stones Design Home of the Brave stamp set, which, by the way, is currently on sale!!!

red, white, and blue


I stamped the flag in the center using ink from Tombow Dual Tip Markers in order to have the proper colors represented on my flag. Then I used my Tombow Glue Pen to add Martha Stewart glitter to the stripes and some sparkly Stickles for each star on the flag.

I LIKE sparkly things! Your 4th of July card is both sparkly AND awesome! Glitters HATES me (I make huge messes with it & it LIVES on me and on EVERTHING every time I even LOOK like I want to use it) so it's WAY more fun looking at YOUR glittery goodness! I'm going to hop over to the other blogs now & annoy THOSE poor folks! HUGS!
