Happy Independence Day!

I wish you all in Canada a very safe, healthy, and happy Canada Day, and you all in the United States a very safe, healthy, and happy Independence Day!

If you want to mark Independence Day by remembering (and perhaps learning about!) our founding fathers, I highly recommend the book Signing Their Lives Away by Denise Kiernan and Joseph D'Agnese. It's a great read, very lively and entertaining. It also shows how our founders were a motley group of people who didn't agree on everything but worked together to get stuff done that set our country on a path of freedom, liberty, and justice for all. We're still on that path, pushing for full inclusion in the life of our nation for all citizens. It's easy to get caught up in ideologies that divide, but we need to stay on that path together...all of us...regardless of political party, creed, or color.

Today's card uses a small and very old Hero Arts set, as well as part of a background stamp of the Pledge of Allegiance from Stampabilities.

The card is 6.25" x 3.5".

Mercy, grace, peace, love, and kindness,


  1. Great card! Happy Independence day to you also! Last night the firecrackers/fireworks next door went on until 12:30 AM. Earlier in the week they had tons go off all at once. Was hoping they were broke. Expect more tonight. Our Maggie dog has been walking in circles most of the day. Have Balance essential oil on her now and diffusing it also. Hope she will have a less problematic night tonight.

    1. Poor puppers! Our dogs have never been skittish because of fireworks...until this year. Hope your Maggie did well!
