Red, white & blue!

Hi guys......happy Saturday!
Hope you're all well & having a lovely weekend!
Oooh, I've missed you all......poorly kids put a stop to my blogging all
week but today, so far so good! It's a beautiful summers day,  I'm
 sat just inside the patio doors listening to AC/DC & crafting away!
Miss Rebecca has joined me, 2nd son James has just come in from
 work & now he's sat colouring too!!!! Oh, and I've had some
good 4th son Christian left school a couple of weeks
ago....and he has a job!!!!! He's going to catering school in September
so fingers crossed it will become a permanent part time job! Anyway, back
to business....I'm hoping to spend the weekend catching up on the
 DT work & commenting I've gotten behind on but first,
I wanted to post this card on Thursday but couldn't so here it is
today......and a very belated happy July 4th all my American,
white & blue are the colours of my country's flag too!
The image is from The Greetings Farm, the papers are Papermania,
the bunting & stars are cut with Framelit dies & the ribbon & gems are
from my stash......hope you like it! Rightio, feels like tea-time....
