Happy 4th of July!

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today is Independence Day in the United States. This happens to be one of my favorite units to teach in Social 5th grade I do a BIG unit on the Revolutionary War and tie it all together, so the students will remember the important event in history. I have to say...I sure do enjoy summer break, but this week...I have missed being in the class teaching. Yes...I know...I actually said it! I actually have been slightly bored. Our BIG vacation that we have been planning for two years starts next week, so that should relieve the boredom feeling. I will share more about the trip later!  
I made a quick card today to help celebrate the 4th. Patriotic colors and stars. 

I used the following sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I really like this sketch, so I probably will be using it again.

I used 4 stars for the holiday, but chose a stamp (Whimsical Designs) that could be for birthday or other special occasion. The stars (and circle) were cut from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge.

Hope you enjoyed your holiday America!
