Happy 4th of July
Today is the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations Challenge. The theme this week is Patriotic. Normally the twist of the challenge is that you need to use Basic Grey paper. We have decided to lift that requirement this week and you can use any paper you would like. You should check out the other DT's work. They are very talented ladies and would love to hear what you think of their cards. You can find their links on my sidebar.
We also have some great news! Lori Ames and Jackie Randolf are joining the Going Grey team!!! These ladies are very talented and we are very excited to have them join us. Please pop by their blogs and give them a big welcome!
There are other wonderful challenges this week that my card fits.
One Stitch at a Time - Stars & Stripes - I bought this digi from TLC because I liked how it incorporated Stars & Stripes in a heart. Perfect image for Patriotic cards.
Stamptacular - Stars & Stripes -Great minds think alike! It is a week for Stars and Stripes.
Crafty Catz - Digi's - Both of my images are from TLC and are digi's.
Crazy for Challenges - Sketch - I thought this sketch fit my papers and images perfectly. I only needed to add the saying which I loved and wanted to incorporate.
Little Red Wagon - 4th of July - One of the things I like about this day is to see all the Flags people hang out. I always feel good about seeing them.
Crafty Cardmakers - Inky Fingers - I liked this theme. You need to ink something up. I traced the saying on this card to make it pop more.
Cupcake Inspirations - Red, White, Blue - Perfect!! Patriotic to me is Red white and blue.
Paper Cutz - Circles, Stars, or Squares - I have all 3 on my card.
Quirky Crafts - Ribbons - When I saw the sketch I knew I would be using my red ribbon. With all the blue I knew that I would want to brighten the card up with some ribbon.
Fun with Shapes - Distressing - I think this card needed distressing because the paper is the faded blue. I distressed the Red & Blue CS to give it the aged looked.
Thanks for coming by and checking out my card. Thanks to everyone who leaves comments. I appreciate all of them.
