Summertime and Independence Day!

Hello friends!  As you can see, the Inspiration Crew is at it again and this time we are having a little Independence Day blog hop!  There's no reason, really, we're just a group of crafty blog friends making projects we like using supplies we like!  If you're here from Annette's blog, you're in the right spot.  If not, head to Donna's blog to get started!

I've been such a bad blogger lately, I thank each and every one of you for sticking by me!  I promise there will be new and more regular posts in the future - it really has taken me this long since Amelia was born to get back into my crafty groove.  :)

For this project, I pulled out a great set of Independence Day-themed stamps from Waltzingmouse and decided to make a little banner using fun, sparkly Twinery twine.  I decided to braid a strand of platinum, blue, and red shimmer together to make the little rope the banner is hanging on.  Yep, finished it at 6am today after Amelia went back to sleep.  Glad one of us could...
Here are a couple of close ups of the smaller banners - I started with white cardstock and stamped all of the images on top.

The fun star was made with two different "kite" shapes in the stamp set that you can cobble together to make this great star!  I cut each of these out separately and adhered them together and popped them off of the banner.

One last thing before I go - I have a giveaway of 60 yards of assorted Twinery twine (15 each of Honeydew, Charcoal, Caribbean, and Blossom stripe)!  All you have to do is leave a comment - anything you want to say or if you're at a loss for words, tell me what things you like to do during the summer!

Off you go to Ceal's blog for more inspiration and here are the rest of todays participants -
