Red, White and Blue Thank You card

This morning I give you a little red, white and blue thank you card. I created this card for one of my neighbors. Before the weather got extremely too hot in AZ to be outside, my neighbor helped teach my 4 year old daughter how to ride a bike without training wheels. He had first taught his own daughter how to ride without training wheels. So when she got the hang of it he had asked my daughter if she wanted to learn and of course she said yes. He had wedged a pole into the back of the bike so that he could hold on and help the rider gain their balance while riding and then when everyone was comfortable he would let go. My daughter picked it up fairly quickly and has been training wheel free all summer. And not only did he help teach her how to ride a bike without training wheels he gave my daughter his daughter's old bike (my daughter's bike was a little small). The 2 girls have become the best of friends and I'm sure once the temps get cooler again they will be riding all day.

I used these items to create my card:
  • Campin' Critters Cricut cartridge
  • red, white, blue, black, and tan cardstock 
  • craft paper
  • red gingham pattern paper
  • red, white, and blue brads
  • silver star brads - on the bike
  • white gel pen
  • clear Thank You stamp
Oh there is one little thing I haven't told you about this card yet...Pull the tab on the side and the little raccoon bike rider slides across the card to reveal a little message.

I am entering my Red, White and Blue Thank You card in the following challenges:
