I am seeing Stars and Stripes!

Happy Wednesday everybody! The work week is halfway over and I'm counting the days til my weekend starts! I wanted to share with you the card I was able to put together this evening:

Isn't she cute jumping with her little jumprope!! I haven't jumped rope in so long I am sure if I tried I would be seeing "stars" for sure! LOL

Well, if you have been following along, you know I have scrapbooked on and off for a long time and "dabbled" in cards at card classes (but those were very simple cards and definitely did not involve coloring!), but this past week or so I have jumped in to making cards and am loving it! Figured if I am jumping in, I might as well jump with both feet and so I decided to create this card for not only one but TWO challenges today!

First, I obtained this sketch from Mary Jo's blog for her Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #75. You should definitely come on over and play along with us - she is giving away some Blog Candy with this week's challenge that is too cute that you wouldn't want to miss out on!

Secondly, I am using this card to submit to this week's challenge of "Stars and Stripes" over at Crafty Creations Challenges. I had colored this little cutie a few nights ago and then found some cute patriotic paper at my LSS today that I thought fit her perfect. Then, lo and behold, when I got home from work today I found this challenge of Stars and Stripes so I thought it was just all a perfect fit!

Now that she seems to be all dressed and ready for the upcoming July 4th weekend, I think I am going to sit down and make some plans tonight for my own July 4th weekend!

Thanks for stopping by! Leave a comment and let me know you were here so I can come visit you too!
