Red ~ White ~Blue

We just returned from our trip to our "North" home.....
I love it there....
the sound of the Great Lake just lulls you to sleep....
we are headed back the week of the 4th...

Anywho, while I was gone, my card in the post below won in the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge...
how exciting...
it is so fun to win random,
BUT, when it is actually selected amongst all the other beautiful entries,
it is REALLY exciting!!
 I won a $20 spending spree at Cheery Lynn
THANKS Cheery Lynn!!!

I am entering this card into the new challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs
red ~ white ~ blue
I used a Cheery Lynn die called Bow and Bell (DL163).....
though, the die comes with it's own bow die....
I chose to use a red, white, and blue ribbon I had...
I used TH ink on my embossing folder, then ran it thru, and a piece of scrap paper
for the background....
a SU star punch with my God Bless America stamp to finish it off!!

Also want to share my "yard art" "Totem" I made...
I saw the idea on Pinterest.....
it cost me about $5 to make....and I have one more "in progress"
