Freedom and Fireworks

Happy 4th of July Everyone!!

My family is celebrating our nation's birthday in our nation's oldest city... St. Augustine.  We go to the Castillo de San Marco Fort where we sit out on the lawn with our blankets and chairs (and of course food and drinks) play frisbee and wait for the fireworks.  It is such a beautiful place to celebrate the 4th and we've been going for a few years now.  It's such a sweet small town, it's the perfect place take the kids and spend time together as a family.  (It also helps that my sister and her family lives there too!!)

See isn't it pretty?

Okay...back to the card.  LOL
I was so inspired by my friend Kerri's card that I wanted to make my own. So when I won a challenge last week and received some really cute digital stamps from Digital Delights, I got to work right away on this little cutie.  This is Luvin the USA Bongo.  Isn't he adorable?!?!
