Cheery Lynn Blog Challenge - Red White & Blue

Hi everybody!   There is so much going on this week - my son wound up with some complications with his wisdom teeth, but he is doing much better now.  Our church is having "Fun Days" which means a carnival and games.  My husband and son have been helping with the set up - and along with my daughter will be voluteering at some of the booths later in the week.  I've been playing chauffeur - I finally get the "mom's taxi" thing! 

Today I'm playing along with the Cheery Lynn Blog Challenge.  You know I am totally nuts about dies!  The more intricate and detailed they are, the better!   When I saw the challenge this week is Red, White and Blue I thought I'd pull out all the stops and make this into a 4th of July celebration reminiscent of sparklers, jumping jacks, and parades!.  I embossed all three of my stars with glitter embossing powder for lots of sparkle, and my sentiment on the fancy stick pin reminds me of the baton at the front of the marching band! 
Time for your puppy update.....   Here's a photo of "Binker" as in "Stinker Binker" with my son that I took this weekend - She's getting BIG!  Can you tell it is really hot here?  Look at that tongue!!!     We are getting used to each others "personalities".  She still likes to chew on rocks and sticks and is helping herself to the raspberries and blueberries on my plants.  How does she know which ones are ripe?  I am guessing the green ones don't taste so good - but she definitely has it figured out!
 I hope you find some time to play along this week - the prize is a $20 gift certificate at the Cheery Lynn store!  Have a great day!

LOL..Binker is adorable!!! Just look at that face. It's almost like she's telling us, "Don't believe a word she's telling you. I'm totally innocent..."

Your card makes me want to sit out in the blazing heat and watch a parade!! I don't like heat, so that says ALOT about your card. :)
