My first HOLIDAy is July 4th Independence day! Happy Birthday America!!

To create my card I used a printable background paper of the declaration of independence  Cut   the firecracker from the independance day cartridge put stickle on the explosive part  ( the are still wet looks a lot better dry) added some patriotic ribbon and Happy Birthday stamped using My creative time stamp set.

My second day is :
 National Strawberry Sundae Day is your opportunity to indulge yourself in this delicious dessert. Strawberries are one of America's favorite fruits. When the strawberries ripen each year, it's time to celebrate. Many communities hold strawberry festivals to celebrate the harvest. At the festivals, strawberries take center stage. They are in the ingredients of hundreds of recipes.

After the harvest has come and gone, summer arrives with heat and humidity. This is the perfect time to add sweet, tasty berries to ice cream for a cooling summer treat. Don't forget to add your favorite toppings. Whipped cream is a must.

Celebrate today, with a Strawberry Sundae.

The cut is from the Sweet Treats cartridge using lots of my scraps  Added a pink ribbon and a little red bling . I miss my Friendly's Ice cream stores they had the best strawberry sundaes ever!!
