SNR Card Universe "Oh Say Can You See" 4th of July Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the SNR Card Universe "Oh Say Can You See" 4th of July Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Basic Jess you are on the right track! If you didn't you may want to hop on over to SNR Card Universe and start the hop at the beginning.
My project is all about being proud to be an American. The photo is from when I was in the United States Air Force. The paper/kit I used is "Washington DC" by Ducky's Designs.
Next on the hop is Change of Heart . Be sure to stop by there and visit.
Now about my blog candy. (Sorry, but I can only ship to a USA address.) I am calling it "Char's Red, White, and Blue Surprise Candy". I am not going to tell you what it is because it would not be a surprise then. I will tell you that it is several items in the same colors as our flag, and if you are a card maker and/or scrapper you will like it. So what do you have to do to be entered into this giveaway? Tell me where the last place you saw the American flag flying. That's it (other comments are appreciated). You have until noon this Monday to post. I will draw a name then, and announce it later on that day in a post.

My flag is proudly atop my deck right about the golf course we live on... and there's smaller flags in flower pots. We display the larger flag all the time (not at night, of course).

Thanks for participating in the blog, sharing your creativity, and for your service to our country.

The last place I saw the American Flag flying was at the cemetary. The entrance to the cemetary is lined with American flags. Then there were all the flags at the cemetary, and one in my father's urn.

Well, I'm from TX and I get to see the flag flying all over right next to our state flag. The last place I guess I saw it would be as I was driving past the car dealership on my way to visit dh folks.

LOVE your LO!!!! We appreciate your service and sacrifice! The last place I saw the flag flying was last night at our friends' beach condo where we watched the fireworks display our city puts on.

Hope you had a wonderful 4th!
