Happy Fourth of July!
Let it Sparkle!!!

Most of you know that I am visiting Arlana this week! We have been busy working on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday schedule for the rest of the year....In all of our fun looking at sponsor sites...we came upon Sassy Cheryl's images! We absolutely love her images! Arlana and I wanted to create a Fourth of July card so we each purchased an image from Sassy Cheryl's. This image is called Patriots Remembered. This morning I couldn't wait for Arlana...(I was hoping she would create a sketch for us to use but she wasn't available) I started to create my own sketch. This is what I came up with. I hope you like it!

I have a lot of fun memories of the Fourth of July...From celebrations at the Bountiful city park to Battery Park on the Columbia River to picnics in our own back yard!

Most of all I am thankful for the freedoms that we have in this country....for our forefathers who believed in a God and founded this nation on that principle. I am proud to be an American and put my trust in God! I am grateful for those who have fought for the freedoms of this country and have lost their lives to preserve it! I pray that the rest of us may live well to preserve it also.
