Just a quick craft I worked on for my door.  I know, I am all into the Quilt look. 
What can I say, nostalgia has set in as I realize my girls are grown
and they don't need  me to tuck them in with their favorite quilts. 
My grandson will get that special quilt in my closet when the time comes 
for tuckin' while at Grandma's & Grandpa's house. 
This will be a craft that will hang on my door this year.
Can't believe I got it put together in just a ten hour One & A half hours, usually takes 
longer just for me to plan. I kept this simple and easy. 
I will probably add another banner at the bottom for next year.
But, I have many projects to work on before Convention...
...OH Yes. Close To My Heart Convention. I leave in 11 days and 11 hours give 
or take a few minutes.  EXCITED.

Thank you Cathleen, I used the Close to my Heart's American Celebration Stamp Set-D1458 on this project. Stamped in Outdoor Denim, & Holiday red on various color papers. Then, while I could only sit on the couch, I fussy cut all around the fireworks. Later, added the Glitter Glitz Gels and that's the effect I got using different gel colors. My Happy forth was cut with the Cricut Cart. "A Childs Year". Before taking cardstock off the mat, I sponged the Holiday Red and the Outdoor Denim in random areas...(letters were not cut in order). Much easier to sponge daub color onto the letters if left on the mat and not separated yet. All papers are left over scraps from projects I did a few years back...All about using up those scraps. I had fun playing around with this..had no planned sketch...just went with what I felt looked good at the moment.
