Old Glory...JUGS33 55

Mona Pendleton | Friday, May 14, 2010 @ 8:57 PM | , , ,

Hi There! Hope you all had a great week & are ready for the weekend! It's time for another color challenge with Just Us Girls. Sweet Lisa chose this week's color combo for JUGS32. Hope you come join the fun!

Using some Spellbinders™ Premium Craft Foil, I created the 3D flag! In case you missed the embossing metal tutorial I previously shared & are interested in learning how to use this amazing product, please feel free to click HERE for complete details!

"Old Glory", All American, Memorial Day, The 4th of July (Independence Day), Freedom & ALL the men & women in the past, present & future who have served, are currently serving & will serve in the United States military come to my mind when I think of these 3 colors.

For a lil' added dimension, I paperpieced the basket, the tablecloth, the flag & the stars. Cutting out those lil' images is hard on the eyes! WARNING: Don't attempt to cut teensy weensy images using a sharp object in the wee morning hours! :) Ask me how I know?

For all the details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls (found on my side bar) as well as LeAnne & Teresa! Once you have your project photographed, be sure to go to Just Us Girls and post a direct link to your project on our site. If you upload to on online gallery, please be sure to label your project as JUGS33.

Deadline to be considered for the weekly "Chic of the Week" will be 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, May 20th. Our Inlinkz tool will also close at that time. Our top pick "Chic of the Week" will be announced on Friday morning following the deadline.

That's all for today. I will be waltzing along with the Claire, Owner/Designer of Waltzingmouse Stamps, the Waltzingmouse DT & Friends in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz on Monday, May 17th continuing the 1 year Birthday celebration of Waltzingmouse Stamps :) A birthday isn't complete without a cake ;) Hope to see you then! Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!
