Independence Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Independence Day Blog Hop - brought to you by the DT Members of Paper Piecings By Nikki. We are so glad you have joined us for our celebration hop! If you haven't been by Nikki's store lately, you have missed out on some awesome files. Here's one of them - perfect for celebrating the 4th!

If you have arrived from the incredible Barb you are in the right spot. If you want to start at the beginning, you can start at our fearless leader, Nikki's Blog.

 This is my card.  I had so much fun making this.  This is my very first ever, tear bear.  My wonderful DT Sister, Barb Rapp, sent me some of her mulberry paper stash, so that I could try my hand at tear bears.  She sent really awesome directions, as well.  Well....I admit that I have LOTS to learn, but I am HOOKED!!!!   I had so much fun making this!  I used the sentiment from K. Andrew Design Stamps "Positive Thoughts".  I think it's the perfect pairing for the look on this little disheveled bears face!
This is my grandest daughter, Lexi's card. She had so much fun using the left over stars from my piecings. I love the way she did the double border using pop dots. She made this card for her dad to say "thank you for serving" his country - and for taking care of all of us.

I am the last stop on the hop today - but please follow the instructions to win some really awesome blog candy. If you leave a comment, please leave a way for me to visit you - I'd love to see what you are making~ here is the full lineup in case you've missed one of us on the way.
