.... the last month has simply flown by and it's time for our monthly Blog Waltz with Waltzingmouse Stamps. The theme this time is "is 4th July/Americana - we're celebrating our cousins in the USA!!" Follow the link above for all the details - it's not too late to join in!
This is my card for the July 4th celebrations. Some day I'd like to be in the US for Independence Day - it must be such fun!
The blue border is not part of my card - it's just so that I could see the card edge when I scanned it! I do hope our American friends are not offended by my take on their National Flag - but I thought it was the perfect background for July 4th celebrations! I used a number of WMS sets in this card - and decided to keep to a colour scheme of blue, red and white - very patriotic!!

Those chipboard letters are the ones I got from Abakhan on Wednesday when my knee collapsed! So glad I remembered to bring them home with me. I'd like to say thank you for the very kind comments and best wishes I received. I am being very careful on my crutches - I have no intention of doing more damage by rushing around!! My physio is a wonderful - while not completely pain free - my knee is much improved after yesterday's visit.
And now, I'm off to join in the Waltz and see all your lovely cards.
