Happy 4th of July...

Good morning everyone. 
     So today I decided not to make a card, but instead I picked up this little wood heart from our Dollar store a couple of weeks ago and made it into an altered project for our front door.  lol
     I always knew that I wanted to use a Greeting Farm stamp, but I really didn't know specifically what girl I wanted to go with.  (or what boy, lol)
     I was thinking of using Anya, but then I came across my 'Cheeky Shooter'  and I knew right away that I wanted her. I also wanted to make it look like her pistol was shooting off fireworks in celebration of the day.  :O) 
     This cute little plaque came painted with the stars and stripes as well as the word AMERICA that already had the blue glitter on it.  I then used some of my old Scrapworks rub-ons to make the words happy July 4th.  They were in a mat blue and I really wanted them to show up better so I used some of my Tombo Multi adhesive  along with some glitter that I've had in my stash for couple of years now.  I think they came out ok.  Once the glue on the words was dry I grabbed some of my newest bling from Crafter's Warehouse and cut them apart so that I could make it look like her personal fireworks.
     I hope this all makes sense to everyone as I am tired at the moment so I had better get those pictures loaded up for you and head to bed.  lol...Thank goodness tomorrow is a Holiday as I am not sure what we are doing yet, but at this point I feel like I need to sleep for a week.,  lol...
Have a wonderful July 4th and I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

Lisa this looks great! Love how you added the extra letters and the bling looks like she is shooting it out of her gun! Happy 4th!

FABULOUS! What a great idea! You're so darn smart! That is a really great decoration for the 4th. This is the one holiday I don't put a lot out around the house, just can't find the right decor. I may have to make something like that myself! I hope you and you family has a safe and fun 4th!!

This is a perfect way to celebrate the 4th, especially with Cheeky Shooter's blingy fireworks! Great job as usual Lisa!
Hope you and your family are having fun celebrating! It's so hot here in the midwest...triple digits and muggy! We just finished a delish meal of ribs, corn, and potato salad and sitting around, waiting for the fireworks!
