Land of the Free!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!!
Hi Everyone and happy Sunday!!! I hope you are all having a fantastic 4th of July weekend! Wow, what a week it's been! We have been busy taking in the parades, the fireworks, having friends and family over for BBQ's and enjoying spending time together. We also had company (BIL and family) that came from Arizona and took them around to do some sight seeing. We took the kids on a few rides, one called the Timber Twister...Oh my gosh, what a blast!! We also went to canal park (which is a beautiful place where the ships come in) and of course stopped at a fun outdoor restaurant. Sad to see them go but now it's time to get back to reality, lol! 

 Here is a 4th of July treat I made for our guests:)
I found these cute mugs at WM and thought they would be fun to decorate up! I started with My Craft Spot's new 4" Doily Die and then layered on a vintage stitched label die from My Creative Time. I then followed with a scalloped and doily using My Craft Spot's Tiny Doilies Die set.
The sentiment is stamped with My Creative Time's My Little Firecracker stamp set. I topped each of the mugs with a fun crinkle ribbon double bow using ribbon from my dear friend, Karen at Little Scrap Pieces.
I also tied a Stars and Stripes twine bow and adhered little stars from My Craft Spot's new Small Alphabet Die set. Hope you enjoyed my project!
I am also entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #167 Red, White and Blue
2.) Pumpkin Spice Challenge #27-Stars or Fireworks
3.) Cuttin and Stampin Challenge #26 Independence Day
