Happy 4th of July!

A very Happy July 4th to all my American friends! I have many wonderful American friends and have made many trips to the US so I'm raising a glass to you all from the other side of the pond!

The only time I've been in America for the 4th of July was several years ago when I was travelling around with a friend - we were in Texas for Independence Day and were a bit disappointed not to see one of the big firework displays we'd heard about. It was only when I got back to England that an American friend over here reminded me that pyrotechnics are banned in Texas! Sod's law!

Here's a card I made for all my American friends using Papertrey products.

Details are on A Passion for Papertrey .... and speaking of Papertrey what a lovely surprise this was!

Thanks for visiting!

Gorgeous card Kate. My DH and I started dating on 4 July so we tend to celebrate that as well as our wedding anniversary - any excuse to celebrate. Sara xx

I did not know about the Firework ban in Texas!

The card is lovely and the mention was very well deserved :-)
