Happy 4th Friends!!! Hope you’re making it a fun and safe one!!

Before I gear up for some food and fireworks, I thought I’d share a project …my last red, white an blue one for a while!

I went on a little baking rampage earlier this week and in the midst of it, I decided to make miniature cheesecakes topped with strawberries and blueberries. YUM!

For a fun twist, I baked them in a jar to make them portable and perfect for our 4th of July picnic!

Of course, I  had to use a few of my stamping supplies to dress these up! I LOVE these wooden spoons from Shop Sweet Lulu – my fave party supply site!
You can customize the handle with stamps, which I love!
I tied the spoons on with torn pieces of red and blue bandanas. A cheap and functional way to include a little napkin on these treat!

Since I had a few extra cheesecakes, I thought I’d give em out as thank you gifts…so of course a few cards were in order! I used the bandanas as inspiration…

I used the Technique Tuesday Paisley Park set  along with a white gel pen to create a bandana pattern. The PTI Say It With Style sentiments were the perfect font for these western-y cards!
I loved the way these cards complement the packaging on the little jars!
Thanks for stopping by for some Damask Love and have a wonderful Monday!
