Hi Everyone and a Challenge

Hi Everyone, I am back..I wanted to take a little break from working on projects. Also I have a lot of exciting things going on in my life right now, so I am kinda busy with that too...will update more later :) So I am gonna try an work on some challenges at least once a week, hoping to get in more than one a week. This week will only be one cause I am super busy and only had time to work on a quick card.
I made this card for Little Scrap Pieces. The theme for the challenge is Stars and Stripes. Ok I knew I wanted my card to be patriotic, but guess what I don't own paper that is even close to patriotic. How I never buy a stack for summer I have no idea, but I really need to. I dug thru my paper stacks to find some blue stripes of the color blue I wanted, and I used the red paper from a Christmas stack. This card is small and I might use it for a Thank You to some family who will be helping out this weekend with our big family fireworks cookout.

I Used/Recipe:
Darice CS
Wild Card -pg52 Blackout feature 4 1/4"
Plantin Schoolbook - Circle 3 3/4" -- Star 1 1/2" -- USA/Roly Poly 1"
Stickles Silver

**sorry if the lighting is bad...the window where I take my pics to have natural light the people that do the yard work for our Apt complex was working on the tree and bushes right out by that window, So I tried to get a good enough light. Plus I had to take it early cause we have more severe storms rolling in, this will be day 20 of rain and storms, the ground can't take anymore an there has been flooding in areas.**

Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone had a great 4th. 

Hugs, Sheena


  1. This paper looks great together for the July 4th theme. We had a picnic and did fireworks on Saturday, which was fun. Can't wait to hear your news!

  2. This is GREAT! I love your design and the subtle inking on the "USA"
