Happy 4th of July!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend!! My hubby and I are having a blast as our 3 nieces have been staying with us for a few days. We've had 5 girls running and playing and screaming and tho it sounds like it might be too much- it's been a real pleasure! We're all having lots of fun! Tonight we're doing a cookout and bonfire and hoping to see lots of fireworks from the backyard- we might have to go out front to see the University of DE. fireworks.
We saw about 5 different sets last night- not full shows but it's always neat to see them in the distance, and our neighbors will probably set off some as well.

My Cardpatterns card isn't very holiday themed, but cute none the less.
I used this totally adorable K&Co glitter bfly on top of a MM journal spot that I cut the edges off. We were sponsered by Shortcuts- these cards are so much fun! I love love the frosted cards!!!
For my patterned paper I used some scraps of Dream Street that I probably wouldn't have used - love that I used scraps that might have gone in the trash!!
I also used a scrap of bobunny ribbon that was too small to make into a bow! The AC thickers I glittered as well and used some tiny type letters for the rest of the greeting.

Have a terrific 4th!!
