Happy 4th of July
to my USA friends!
My card today represents the flag of the United States in a unique way ♥
I used only scraps to create this card!
I had just enough to create the stripes
by separating the paper and spacing it apart.
With the small amount with the words, I was able to make the heart
for a different twist on Old Glory ♥
This card is a sweet memory for me ~
starting it late (I mean LATE!) one night and thinking hmmmm.
So I thunk and then thunk some more andthen it clicked :)
My first thought - from the red, white and blue colors - drew me to create a flag.
But in building the card - measuring, cutting, gluing, remeasuring,
and trying to make it work, it made me think of how much
we are often like this flag.
We may not always have enough, we may not always have what we need,
but somehow through perseverance, hard work, and blessings,
we pull through and come out stronger.
In coming together as one, bonding,
something beautiful is created on the other side ♥
Big hugs, bigger blessings!
