Which means the 4th of July is just around the corner. For me, this ensues memories of BB Q's, swimming, friends and family, and lots of red, white, and blue.
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge we want you to embrace your red, white, and blue by creating and sharing with us your card or project. I was overjoyed when I saw these papers in my LSS by My Mind's Eye. I bought what I thought I would use (plus a few) because holiday papers tend to sell out quickly. I ♥ these papers and will share a few more projects I made with these shortly. I think MME is my favorite manufacturer. I tend to gravitate towards their items and always want to buy the entire collection. This line, American Made does not have all the bell's and whistles (embellies) but that's okay because I bought every piece of paper available. I used a Robyn's Fetish image, Liberty Bell, which I printed in black and left uncolored for a more dramatic look. I wanted the papers colors to be prevalent and was worried if I colored the image it might be too distracting. I stitched the top and bottom for a little texture. I used a Karen Foster rub-on and then stamped the word "happy" with my Close To M Heart "Say It Style" set in Hero Arts black. A touch and bling from Queen & Co. and I was done. I hope you like!
