Welcome to our 4th of July Blog Hop! What comes to mind, when you think of the 4th of July? Being with family, barbeques, picnics, and fireworks? That's what comes to my mind. But, few know the actual reason we are celebrating this holiday. We know it has something to do with America, the flag, and independence. On July 4, 1776, United States of America declared its independence from Britain. So today is America’s Birthday! Happy Birthday, America!
Today we have a lot of wonderful, talented women wanting to celebrate this holiday, with you. In case you get lost and want to start at the beginning, go to Pamela’s blog http://kraftykatstampstudio.blogspot.com

O.K. So, I got a few patriotic cuts from some friends, and decided to use some of them. I made a sign for my front door to celebrate our freedom as Americans. Here's what it looks like!
LOL!!! Was even using my flag scissors..... they're my everyday ones!! ;)
Rundown of names... wanna give credit where credit is due! Miriam Meserve made the sparkly fireworks, Wanda Sanchez made the adorable ice cream cone, and Carolyn Mc Cravy made the " Precious Freedom" and the 4th of July cuts. I made the dog tag, to also give credit to all of our American soldiers, past, and present, who put their lives on the line everyday, for OUR freedom!
Here's the sign on my front door!
Lucky me.... this is what my boys were doing while I was getting my crafting done!! :)
