Happy 4th with PIE! :)

Coffee of the Day - Maple Pecan

Happy 4th of July to all of my friends who live here in the good ol' USA!!!!! hello to all the rest of you, too! :) As I mentioned in a previous post, I am so proud to be an American. Last night David & I watched Extreme Home Makeover. They were honoring a soldier who was shot in the deadly spree of Ft. Hood, TX back in 2009. Oh, how we teared up watching all that this young man had been through. Such courage & bravery from both he & his fiancee. I do pray for our troops stationed both here at home & overseas. I can not even imagine all that they endure for us. Please please, if you have never done so in the past, I encourage you to look into Operation Write Home. This is such a phenom organization that collects cards to send to our troops so that they in turn can have a homemade card to send back home.

I have a card to share with you today with a delightful patriotic image from Sassy Cheryl. you can also find it at Squigglefly. We love our pie here in the Scull family, and since I couldn't be with my family today, it seemed fitting that I send them a pie somehow! ;) Papers are from the Americana collection by K & Co. used a button salvaged from David's shirt, the banners were die cut from card board & writing paper. the bases were edged in white craft and then stickles. the writing paper was sprayed with walnut gold glimmer mist. On the pie, the hearts & button were painted with shimmerz. the polka dots were accented with stickles. A prima flower & ribbon finish off the card. Hope my family likes their 'American Pie' for the holiday! :)

have a wonderful day celebrating with your family & friends!
love ya dearly! Jennifer
