Celebrate America

Happy 4th of July!  I thought I should get these on my blog before the 4th is history.  The first one is simply stickers.  The paper is from Papertrey Ink and the punch is a Martha Stewart punch.  The second one is a stamp from Rosie's Roadshow framed with PTI paper and colored with Copics.  I added stickles to the sparkler.  The background is made with a PTI set of stamps and then of course a sticker at the bottom.  In real life it matches much better.

Has it been hot where you live?  Sure has been hot here and I had outdoor work to do on the two hottest days.  It is done now so I can stay inside and watch the temperature climb from the comfort of air conditioning! 

My husband is now officially retired.  Last night was his last night at work.  I think he is in a state of shock!  After a few days I think he will be going nuts so we will see how long this lasts.  I have an appointment with the hospital on Monday to see about volunteering. 

Have a wonderful 4th of July - stay cool and enjoy all of the freedoms we have in the United States of America!

Until next time, happy trails to you



  1. Congratulations to Bill on his retirement!!! I don't usually do anything with cards for the 4th, but yours are great!


  2. I love the cards. Yep, it's hot here too. Congrats to hubby on retiring. Now don't drive each other crazy.

  3. Two wonderful cards, Sheri!! Congrats to Bill on his retirement - that's so cool that you are both retired now. Enjoy it! Is the hospital volunteer position for you or for Bill?

  4. Oh these are both so cute!! Very nice! The stars are just such a perfect touch! Congrats to Bill and good luck with the hospital. I'll write to tomorrow!! Hugs!
