Heartfelt Thanks 4th of July style!

How's this for a tease? Actually, this tag from a purchase at Bass Outlet store has been reborn as my tag on this gift for the hostess of the 4th of July gathering we're going to tomorrow.

Sharon Johnson has a challenge on her blog today to use stars and stripes. This particular entry is more like stars and strips but I think it fits.

I took a jar of my Triple Berry Jam (strawberry, raspberry, blackberry...YUMMY recipe in the Sure-Jell pkg.) because of its rich red/blue color, added some ribbon, a pail from the $1 bin at Target, some red excelsior, some stars I got on clearance after Christmas and my tag.

The red solid and the DP are scraps left over from my God Bless America post yesterday. I printed the name of the jam with my computer using the Lucinda Handwriting font in Word then cut it out with my Cuttlebug. I layered my image star on two stars from the 4th of July set at the Cutting Cafe.

The card also uses scraps that I stamped with SU white craft ink and the anniversary set from Papertrey Ink.

I hope they like it.

Blessings and Happy 4th of July!!
