Happy 4th Of July For Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge

Hello Everyone! Can you believe that 4th of July is next week!  4th of July is one of my favorite holidays.  My hubby and I decorate the wheels on our bikes with red, white and blue crepe paper streamers and participate in the neighborhood bike parade. It is always so much fun. Even our dog, Woody, comes along with us.  We have a bike trailer that he rides in that has been adapted with a wood floor so he can stand up in it. Woody has a pair of Doggles that he wears to keep the bugs and road dirt out of his eyes.  He has as much fun as we do.   .   . maybe even more, because everyone says hello to him!

Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge, I am so happy to be hosting. For this week's challenge,  I have chosen  Add A BANNER to a card or project . I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of one this week's wonderful prizes from 7 Kids College Fund and The Ribbon Girl.

For my card, I used Lilly Bimble Patriotic Digi Design Papers from MyGrafico. I added a Double Mat of Red and Blue Card Stock using the Perfect Layers RulersBurger Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  I used the Scor Bubby to create the Bunting Banner. I used the stripes in the Design Paper as a guide for the score lines. Then I used  FabricTac to form and to add the K & Company Americana Pillow Stars to each bunting.

I created the picnic table by cutting a rectangle out of the Design Paper and two oblong diamonds to place on the corners. The legs are just two strips of brown card stock. The Pie is from Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers and the Condiments are from Stampa Barbara. Unfortunately these two companies have gone out of business. The little flag in the pie is from a Studio G Clear Stamp Set.   .   . the flag is on a cupcake.  For the grass, I used Martha Stewart Grass Border Punch.  Before I glued everything down, I sponged some clouds in the background using a cloud template. "Happy Fourth Of July" is also from Studio G. The ribbon is from Michaels.

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! And, for those of you in the USA, I hope that you and your families have a fun and safe 4th of July!

Big Hugs,

What a great card to celebrate the 4th! Love the colors and that burger looks good enough to eat!

I totally love this card, Suzan -- and the pic of Woody in his 4th Finery. It's been a long time since I was in a Fourth of July parade -- maybe 45 years! My younger sister didn't have a bike but only one of those ride on horses that she'd jump on to make its legs splay to move forward. We decorated that for her and dressed her as a red-white-and-blue All American Cowgirl and she won the blue ribbon. What a fun memory!! Thank you for it.

Now let's all go eat some blueberry pie face down into it with our hands tied behind our backs, in a Pie Eating Contest, and celebrate our freedoms.

Happy Independence, girlfriend!
