Independence Day Card

Last week I finished up my cards for the Fourth of July and got them sent off. However, I had not blogged about any so I thought today if the internet holds out long enough I would share one I made using the Jan's Digital set called Independence Day Friends. I will enter this into Jan's Digi June  2020  Challenge. The theme is always Anything Goes.



The first thing I did was to put some fireworks in the background.  I then grabbed Eunice and Gertrude who were sitting at a picnic table holding their flags. But it occurred to me that they might be a little hungry so I debated between serving them hamburgers or hotdogs. Finally I decided that the hotdog was a favorite of mine for the Fourth so I served them both a plate of goodies and some beverage. The final addition to my card was to add the sentiment Independence Day along the bottom. For this card I used all pre-colored images so we shall give Jan the credit for the beautiful coloring.

So glad the internet is holding up yet so I think I can get this posted. Thanks for the visits and wonderful comments.

God bless,
Verna
