Something to CELEBRATE...BBB12 59

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, July 3, 2011 @ 9:00 PM | , ,

Happy 4th of July, (aka United States Independence Day), to all who celebrate! Are you doing something fun and exciting or simply enjoying a relaxing day at home with your family and friends? I am celebrating something exciting in my crafty world! I am honored and thrilled to share with all of you that Julie Koerber, DT Coordinator of the Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful monthly challenge has invited me to join the DT filled with fabulous and talented designers!!! YAHOOO!!!! Of course I said YES! :)
So I am here today to share with you what I made for my first assignment as a DT Member. The challenge for the month of July is: The beauty of Summer and/or Vacation. As summer is in full swing we are enjoying the warmer temperatures and many are going on vacation here in the USA. Make a creation with the theme of summer or vacation and link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creation here to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB12. You have until July 31st to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!

 I found it fitting to create a Patriotic themed card in observance of the 4th of July celebration today using darling pennant images from Flourishes Birthday Pennants which coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders™ Nested Pennants die templates. One of my fondest summer memories of growing up in the small suburban town of Orchard Park, NY was the local town 4th of July parade and fireworks show! Seemed like EVERYONE in town lined the streets for the event and there was quite a sense of community.
I also played along with this week's Stampin' Royalty challenge which is to create a project that showcases your Patriotic Pride. Be sure to visit the site for some awesome inspiration :) Thanks so much for visiting. Hope you join along in the fun! Please be sure to visit the entire DT for some amazing inspiration:

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Flourishes Birthday Pennants
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nested Pennants, Big Scalloped Borderabilities Petite, Grand Calibur

I LOVE the bunting on this beauty........ the fluffy ribbon on both sides ties it together perfectly!!! Is that an old book page or a particular paper ....... LOVE IT!!! I know what you mean about small town.... leaving NYC and now having horses in the backyard behind us that we can pet is a big swing and I love every minute of it. We walked in the parade on Saturday with our wagon and the kids ...... SO CUTE!!! Have a happy and safe 4th!!!
