You're a Gem

Happy Monday,

Hope you had a great time during our Independence Celebration this past weekend.  The weather was very cooperative for picnics, parades, cookouts, baseball and fireworks!!!  This time of year is bitter sweet for me because my late father was a July 2nd baby.  Every year we graced him with a Red, White and Blue cake, sometimes going so far as to add sparklers instead of candles.  He was my Yankee Doodle Dandy!  He served our nation in the Navy and I am truly thankful for him as a father, friend and patriot.

I got busy this morning looking for a challenge or two to enter as I was itching to work at my craft desk.  See below at the challenges I found … you may want to join in on the fun too!  Here is my card:

Here are the details:
Stamp set:  Lovely Amazing You and Paper Pumpkin Sew You
