Happy Birthday America!

Well It's 4th of July weekend here in the US. So far it has been pretty quiet around here. The neighbors are setting off nearly as many fireworks as they did last year. This time Houston isn't as scared of all the noise as he was last 4th. He jumps but he's not barking his head off. That will be tomorrow when the festivities really begin.


It's been pouring buckets here so I was able to finally get finished this little gift card holder for my mother. Isn't it cute? I got the template for the flower pot card from myscrapchick.com. It's the perfect size for a gift card holder and my mother will love it. The flowers are Daisy Doodles and they come as part of the flower pack, which has 14 images. You can check them out here in the
store.

I have really been on a role with the flower images. This is daisy from the Daisy Doodles shop as well. When I saw this image, I knew I had to do something with it. I know you've never seen a blue daisy before but a girl can dream, right?
