RED, WHITE & BLUE Challenge




This America card is entered @


Bitten By the Bug 2 -Patriotic


 Check out the WOBBLE action !!!
 Close up of Eagle stamp on silver




This is my 1st attempt back at crafting after a month long illness and boy did it feel GREAT! I decided to kick off my MIA from my craft room with this card to celebrate the 4th of July since I am so proud to be an American citizen for only a couple of years.
I used Spellbinders circles and banner and Martha Stewart border punch in royal blue. The paper is all DCWV. The stamp is from the $1.00 section at Michael's. The glitter is of course Stickles and the bling is from The Rubber Cafe.
The "Always & Forever" is cut from Cricut's Sophisticated cart , page 50 @ 2 1/4". I used my favorite Action Wobble to make the Eagle move.


Since I LOVE comments and haven't had any for a month, I could use some blog LOVE!

  3. I love it!!! I'm so glad you're back to being able to craft! Good to see you're feeling better! My arm is still swollen, so I go back in 2 weeks, and then they will schedule the surgery to remove the cyst. That could be done in their office, which worries me.. but I guess they do things there often, and probably cheaper for the patient! Have a great upcoming weekend. Your so very welcome for the card! Glad it made you smile and I'm so jealous you're in FLA. 106 here today, heat index of 117, tomorrow's cooler, 103 and heat index of 115! Whew what a relief! LOL
