Happy 4th of July and an Update

 So, I have been offline for several days....Last Friday a nasty storm came through and knocked out our power.  We did not get power back until yesterday...3 + days without power.  So, no blogging, no TV, no A/C...but it was OK, we made do.  DH & DS played golf every day, while I stayed home (to watch after my fur babies who did not like the heat) and read, colored and just relaxed. 
I read 4 books, some had been in "to read" drawer fro over a year!  I also colored almost all the digis I had printed!  Here are just a few;
Now to make cards with them :)

So, needless to say I did not get my Pick 3 done for the week, and since the  week is almost over I am just not going to bother.  Instead I want to share my latest ATC.

This is for a swap, the theme is "Star Spangled Banner".  I had a lot of ideas, but my DS actually helped me with this one.  While in the store looking for things to inspire me, he helped me pick up the flag stickers and star rhinestones.  When i got home I found a scrap of paper that was just perfect...fireworks!  So, this one went together really quick.  I pop dotted the flag onto the background.  I then added the star rhinestones.  I accented the stars with Stickles and added a silver Stickle frame on the card.  Simple, but to me it really catches the theme.

I hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday!
