Sketch 271~It's a Celebration, Happy 4th Of July, Stampin UP

Image result for happy 4th of july
I had a few minutes to spare to whip up this card today for the fun challenge at:  
I thought I'd stick with a patriotic theme today being that it is the 4th of July.   SO I pulled out my Christmas/New Years set.. I mean what else would a stamper use?  haha.. Seriously though the stampin up, It's a Celebration set that has Happy New Years sparklers is perfect.  So I made a little fireworks display in the center square.  The sentiment is from an older 1993 set and I only have 1 or 2 from it.  I wish I had the whole thing.   The vertical strips on the side are washi tape, that I stuck down and then matted it also.   Did you notice the red,white, and blue star brads?   I thought I'd tack those on because of the embossed star background.  
Here is a picture of our festive table.  We celebrated the 4th early because both of our kiddos could come home.   Today it's just hubby myself and the puppers.  WE were outside for a lovely time and will be grilling burgers later.  Our daughter and Son-in-law might come over to have a small fireworks show.  
Our son had to head back out of town.  
I thought I share a picture of HP cooling off in his pool.  My daughter cleaned it all out for us and him.  Because early this summer a duck family decided it should be their personal pond.  It was cute.. but it was MESSY.  
Here is a picture of our yard today.. as you can see it's a hazy humid day.. but honestly I'm loving it.  

I hope that you're all enjoying a lovely day with friends and family.  Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
