Celebrate the USA!

hello!
Well this is my first post as a member of Speedy the Cat's Design Team for Mark's Finest Papers. I think they have some of the most beautiful clear stamps out there - the detail is amazing. I am always so impressed with the talent of the Design Team so I count it quite an honor to be asked to join!
The challenge this week is to create a " patriotic project" for the 4th of July!
I LOVE THIS SET!
it's MFP's "American Made"
my goal was to achieve a vintage patriotric look
hope you get a chance to enter this week's challenge - remember the winner is randomly chosen and receives a FREE stamp set - also checkout the projects from the Design Team!
supplies for this one are listed over on the Speedy TV site (click on my side bar)

now have you seen the new Cheery Lynn Design dies! oh my, they are wonderful. I entered a challenge over at Joan's Gardens to try and win one..but lost :(   so I was able to get one of their doily dies from the June craft show at Chantilly - it's called Italian Flourish...love it!

Wishing everyone a wonderful time to celebrate our wonderful country - even with our budget problems, gas prices, lack of work for so many, etc etc etc
THE USA IS STILL THE BEST!
a BIG shout out to our troops - without them - how long would we have our freedom in so many things!

headed out later today (even though its suppposed to hit 98 degrees!!) for our church picnic...you know us Baptists eat goooooood LOL
hugs
so many patriotic challenges, so entering mine in the following:
Pennys Challenges

What a beautiful eagle!!! Your coloring is still the best, Linda. Your seam binding bow is gorgeous. I couldn't agree with you more about the USofA. When ever I complain I always add, 'but it's still the best country in the world'. Happy 4th, I'm jealous of your picnic, yum!!!
