Happy 4th

If you're celebrating the 4th of July today, hope you have a great one and a fun weekend to follow!

The image I used is from Deedee's Digi's who just so happens to have a progressive challenge going on right now.  Be sure and check out the cute digi for this month and enter.  Then next month you'll receive a free digi!  Deedee has so many cute images in her shop and you'll love each and every one of them and just keep wanting more.

For a happy note today ....... From now until Sunday July 6th you can get a 25% discount on your order at Deedee's Digi's using the coupon code INDEPENDENCE.

I used a pre-colored image for my card today but the set also comes with the line version so you have a choice of coloring it yourself or not.  It also has some wonderful sentiments too!   I added some digital paper, twine, and some red, white, and blue star brads.  Very CAS but think it gets the message across just fine!

On a VERY sad note now:  Last year I was asked to be on the design team for Digi Haven (which closed a couple of days ago).  We need your help!   Denise, the owner/coordinator of this challenge blog who is such a sweet and wonderful lady has had an extremely serious medical diagnosis with an unfavorable outcome.  If you believe in the power of prayer, Denise and her family need ALL the prayers you can give her right now.  Please pray for this very special lady.   

Thanks for stopping by......and head on over to Deedee's Digis to see all the rules of the progressive challenge.

Hi Lynn,

Thanks for your loving email... hopefully we will settle in fast knowing that we have lived in Singapore earlier.

Your card is very cute and so are the rest of them. It is just that I cannot enter into the comment box and leave comments for more than one card at a time. So all I do is browse and admire and be silent. Lol.

Sorry to hear about Denise, I will pray for sure, infact am sending her healing right away.

Lots of love,

Monica

This card came out beautifully. I adore your CAS cards as you know they are my favorite type of cards. That paper is stunning. I am so very sorry to hear of Denise's horrible situation. I don't know her but if you can please pass along my good thoughts and tell her I will be thinking of her as well as praying for her.

I love how you used this Hats Off digi. The patriotic banner, the pierced circle and embossed red square were all a wonderful backdrop to Mr. Eagle; loved the splash of stars under the striped twine. Very patriotic. I will keep Denise on my prayer list. Prayer is powerful, so let's have a lot going Heaven-ward. Take care. God Bless & Hugs too.

Fabulous design, Lynn! I love Deedee's eagle and your stars and stripes really show him off so well. I'll definitely keep Denise in my prayers, hon. Hope you'll send a general message to the DT ladies at Deedee's. All of them believe in the power of prayer and that way we can all have her on our daily prayers lists.
