Art Impressions for 4th of July

Quite a few years ago, AI had a retail store not that far from me. I loved shopping there & even taught a few classes.  Many of my purchases were AI unmounted stamps & I pulled out 3 of them for this simple card to send to my brother.  Turns out Art Impressions has a challenge & it's Red, White & Blue, so I'm joining in.  I'll also enter over at Retro Rubber Challenge.
Still very hot here, so we're hoping the air conditioning doesn't give out--sure zaps our energy! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  
Edited to add: Also entering at Paper Sweeties where my friend, Maria, is on the DT.  Also entering at SSS Monday.

  7. I have that exact stamp and love your patriotic card, Greta!! I didn't know AI had a challenge, so thanks for that info! I know what you mean about the heat and humidity zapping one's energy! This has been the longest week with 108 and 105!! It should be a little cooler today, but it's very muggy. We're normally spoiled on our coast!! I hope it cools off up there, too, and you have a wonderful 4th!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Great CAS card for our upcoming holiday! Hope you get some cooler weather. We have been hot and humid in Georgia which is why my two miniature schnauzers are hugging the ceramic floor. Love seeing your babies. Thanks for sharing your sweet card with Retro Rubber this week. Hope to see you often in our gallery...
