Raisin Boat Challenge #24 The USA/July 4th/Red, White and Blue

This month's challenge is to help you get ready for your 4th of July celebrations.  You could make an invitation, card for the troops, a table decoration, a banner, an art journal page, anything that you might like using the colors red, white and blue. Remember that it can be whatever you may need to help you celebrate! I Just remember to do some stamping.

Use any set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps), but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice! You can enter as often as you like.

Remember you can rent or buy sets from Raisin Boat. No guilt in using a set for just one project, such as a challenge. We look forward to seeing what you make for those special people in your life.

Here are the upcoming challenges for 2014 to help you get the perfect sets into your rental Pick List:

June: The USA/ Red, White and Blue
July: Summertime
August: Birthday
September: Halloween
October: Thankful
November: Christmas

This challenge will close on the 12th of July.

Here is what I created for this challenge.

Rolodex Cards Catch Up Day

Here I go again. I have not been sharing daily so I need to do a catch up day again.
I am good about posting everyday on YouTube but I know some of you don't check there for me.
So here we go.

OK that is it for now. If you are interest in daily art cards there is a 61 day ICAD  (Index Card A Day) activity and  prompts are going on over at Daisy Yellow Zine. You will find a lot of  amazing inspiration over there.

Thanks for stopping by. Oh and if you are interested in the detail about any of the cards just click the blue link about the picture and that will take you to the video on my You Tube Channel.

Happy Crafting!
