Creativity: Simply the act of making something new

Stars and Stripes

Keeping it simple and done in under an hour for The Crazy Challenge, I followed a sketch by Pals Paper Arts (PPA48) and used Graphically Speaking cricut cartridge for the flag and star strip, I made the initial strip cut too small but was able to use the left-over cut out stars to pop up against my white CB Swiss Dot embossed (embossing challenges this week by All Sorts, The Crafty Pad and Caardvarks) background which gave me an extra dimension to use for the ABC Challenge and I went with a patriotic theme for our upcoming Independence Day which is challenged by The Cuttlebug Spot , Fantabulous Cricut 4th of July (using a star),Cupcake Inspirations 4th of July,  One Stitch At A Time Stars and Stripes, Stamptacular Sunday Stars and Stripes Challenge and  Little Red Wagon, I used a new 12x12 pad of red, white and blue paper and that goes into S2G's 'Something New' Challenge, and  for the 'Anything Goes' Challenge Digi Doodle Shop, Sew Many Challenges and Fresh Brewed Designs.
Thanks for stopping by!
