Welcome back!!  Hope you had a wonderful week and are now ready to get creative!!
This week we have another sketch challenge that was provided by Colleen Spangler.  Special thanks go out to Colleen for providing us with such excellent sketches to work with.

The details and work that Marion has put into this card amaze me!  I love all the stitching.. and distressing and well just everything.  Beautiful!

A nice, clean and simple scrapbook page.  While I love to "fancy" pages up, I also love the clean and simple lines like this page.

Challenge #123 - Colour Inspiration

This week we are headed back over to  for another fabulous colour inspiration photo.  How can you not be inspired by this fantastic photo.  I am sure many of you have enjoyed patriotic celebrations over the past week, and now you get a chance to be crafty with the colours.  Take a look at this fantastic photo... 

 We hope that you are as inspired as we were...  look what our design team came up with... 

How adorable is this?!  I just love everything about this card... 
and how about that cat sitting in the corner..  LOVE IT!!!!

 Here is my "red, white, and blue" layout, but please check out my blog for my "patriotic" layout.

I'm a sucker for Riley the Moose - not sure what it is about him...  but I love anything and everything that Riley does.. how patriotic of him....holding that American Flag! 

Just so sweet..  I'm a sucker for sparklers.. even at my age I still love them.  I adore this image.

Another wonderfully patriotic card.  I can just picture this little girl marching in a parade.  I love all the layers and stripes that Tracey has created on her card.
