God Bless America Card

Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! What’s on my desk this week?

Ordinary Things 1

Building blocks.


Seemingly ordinary stuff.

On their own, every day things look like nothing special.

But – when you start to play around – when you start to add the pieces together – that’s when the magic happens!

Ordinary Things 2

What magic are you making out of the ordinary things in your life this week?

Here in the United States, we are celebrating our freedom and independence this week!

At Wordless Wednesday, the Fireworks have already begun! You’re invited to stop to join the festivities and to share a special photo with us – and to join us for Inspire Me Monday and Friendship Friday as well!

Fireworks 1

Have a wonderful week celebrating your freedom!

    Very cute! Despite having lived in the USA for no more than 2 of her nearly 18 years, DD is amazingly excited about the 4th of July! She’s never experienced the whole fireworks, community picnic, firehouse Chili cook off that I remember as a kid, and yet she can’t wait for the day! I should make her a version of your card 🙂 She’d be over the moon….

    Happy WOYWW!

  18. irene says:

    love your patriotic card and workspace. i agree that ordinary ingredients often make magic!

  19. What a pretty patriotic card. You are right that the bits and pieces of every day stuff that make a card don’t look like much on their own. They sure do come together nicely and it is so fun to get to put them together! Judy #72

    Lovely card. Really beautiful. May I ask to put the color pallette on your blog. Thanks.

    Thanks for joining us at Creative colors challenge and good luck.


  22. Love it!!! So often we always see the items that others use but never really give a lot of thought to little things such as shaped paper clips. I had just moved my white stars the other day and was thinking I should use those soon on something. Thanks for sharing and giving a little inspiration. Have a blessed Fourth!

  23. Avril Watson says:

  25. I love your July 4 card! A town in New Mexico hung up a banner for their July 4 celebration and instead of it saying God Bless America it just said Bless America. There’s been quite a lot of chatter about that. It’s unfortunate that people feel the need to remove God from our history.

    Happy WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (60)

      Aren’t those stars awesome?
      Originally, I wanted to incorporate silver mesh into the card as layered backdrop (but couldn’t find it) –
      Then I came across the stars –
      Added the gems to them for a little extra pop –
      Had a blast designing this! 🙂
