Have you heard about the brutal heat wave we are having here in the Southwest,
Has been in the 120s for 4 days, 124 yesterday and supposed to hang around 118 for
 the next week. When its that hot the nights only cool to the high 90s
and all the plants are burnt so Im having to water day and night.
I say we should all average our temps and we would all have great weather!
I have used one of the new June releases Be Proud
After coloring the Eagle it was cut out with a Scalloped Spellbinder
The center was embossed and all stitched together. 
The two strips of stars are cut  from PTI die.
  My talented teammates have lots of GREAT Inspiration for you, so be
sure to stop by and check theirs out!
Excessive heat sparks wildfires and in Arizona, 19 Elite firefighters lost their lives yesterday  while fighting the fires. Please remember their families in prayer.

Your eagle looks amazing! Terrific card ... I've been seeing the news about the heat there and the fires in Arizona ... I'm thinking of you all ... I know we complain about the weather here being non too warm but we should be grateful ... Stay cool

I think I would literally melt in that heat - take care and remember we are thinking cool thoughts for you. I love all the detail in your card and I hope you are able to enjoy your celebrations on the 4th despite the intense heat.

This is gorgeous!! The eagle is so fabulous!! I love the embossing!! I can't believe the heat wave you are having. I feel's been cooler here - mid 70's and rainy. I've had my windows open for the last three days. Saying prayers for the brave firefighters who lost their lives and for the heat to let up. Happy Monday :)

What a super patriotic card, Davi. I really enjoy seeing this type card. Unfortunately, I didn't get even one made this year.
Your heat is really bearing down this year. Hang on!
Oh, that was so dreadful about the firefighters. What a tragedy for so many.
