Ics sketch 24 & 4th of July

Hey there all-
I want to start off saying that I do appreciate my followers!!!! Since I said that I would also like to thank all of you that stop by and leave such nice comments! It means a lot to me! Also thanks for the comments on my style! I like to keep things fun and make someone laugh instead of always having a Hallmark type card! Hee hee Probably keeps me from be picked for design teams or maybe from being published! I sure hope Dawn at ICS does not mind since I design for her!
I hope your July 4th was safe! We had a good time here. On Friday, we went to the firework store to get our supply. We only get a few airborne fireworks but lots of fun showers and spark stuff. We stay kinda of legal, LOL!!!! We do have great time with our stuff! I love roman candles and as I call it booms! Loud booms are my favorite or to say very noisy firecrackers! I will show you a picture of one of our cones that emit sparks and crackles! We always enjoy these!

Well on to our sketch at ICS. I have to say this was a very challenging sketch for me! I was ready to start throwing my supplies! ; ) I am hoping that everyone likes this card!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch:
Paper: SU and DCWV
Ink: SU & Dew Drops
Stamp: Sweet & Sassy
Embellies: Joann's
Ric Rack: ?
As usual, I colored the mouse with Prisma pencils blended with Gamsol. I sure do needc to try my 2 brand new box of Copics! Taylor has done wonderful coloring with them but I stick to my pencils since I really just got use to using the Gamsol for blending! I will try them soon I hope!
This week started the demolition of my parents house. My dad said that basically they knocked it down into the family room. I am not sure where they will go from there but when I find out I will give you all an update. It makes me sad to start this week because my parents are moving out! I have enjoyed having them here with us!! They are moving into a condo that is close to us. I guess it is time things move on but it is hard to let go!!!!! The girls are excited because they are moving where there is an indoor pool! I know where they will want to be!
As usual, thanks for visiting me!!!!! Also, I want to show my appreciation for my followers! If you follow my blog, please comment here! I will randomly pick a winner of some blog candy! I don't know what it will be yet but I am sure you will enjoy it! So make sure you comment! If you are not a follower of me, leave a comment anyway for a chance to get a little something too!
Please come back again soon!!!!!!!

Fink, is the condo where your folks are settling or is there a house still being built? Happy they will have their own haven but know you will miss them.

I love your take on the challenge. Great card! Love the colors and the happy feel!
