CASology #51, ColourQ #196 and some new pajama's

One more post for the day...we are still having hot weather here on the west coast, just way too hot to be outside, but I am more of a inside girl, a dolly domestic.  So I have two cards to share today and my first one is for this weeks CASology #51 and their cue card this week is Fireworks, so appropriate for this week.  I saw this idea online and can not remember who made, so sorry to not give credit...I changed it up just a bit to make it my own.  I love it when I can pull out 3 stamp sets for one card, so much fun.

My second card is for this week's ColourQ #196 challenge.  When I saw the colors I knew just what I wanted to make and once I pulled the set out the one with it gave an another idea, I always find it interesting how ideas pop into my head.  The colors for this week are very interesting, right?  But I had no problem finding things to make with them and neither are for the 4th of July.  Thank you so much for stopping by to peek at my cards...have a great holiday week!

My last photo of the day is of the new pajama's I made for Ashleigh today. They were quick, easy and fun to make and so I thought I would share them with you.

  8. Two very cute cards--I love how you incorporated fireworks and arrows into your very festive God Bless America card. And, your birds on a wire--I believe those are birthday scallops--just adorable, and such a clever way to use those supplies. Wouldn't that be a nice view from my window. And, those pajamas are just the bees knees--Ashleigh is so lucky to have such a talented and devoted mother.
