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
