(The sentiment is a CTMH stamp.)
Here's a card for the Red, White and Blue Challenge at Loves Rubberstamps.  I have lots of scraps leftover from making all my patriotic cards last week.  That's what happens when you use a 6x6 paper pad to make A2 cards... lots of 1/2" strips leftover. 

I am entering this card in the following:
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge #111 - Red, White and Blue
A Creative Romance Challenge - Colors of your National Flag (USA)

Cards in Envy - Stars and Stripes Challenge (The blue paper may look like it has white polka dots, but they are actually tiny stars.)
Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge #209 - Patriotic or Red, White and Blue
Creative Colors Challenge #14 - Inspiration Photo Colors + a banner

Check out my great-granddaughter, Laila, almost 5 months old already.  She's putting everything in her mouth right now.  
She tried this watermelon, and it had to be pried from her chubby little hands.

She makes my heart smile!
