Stamp Simply #141 – Flying High and Proud Color Challenge

Published by at 9 32 pm under Challenges,Stampin' Up! Projects

Flying High and Proud Color Challenge – This marks the beginning of Memorial Day Weekend in the USA, a time we remember and honor those who have so bravely and proudly served our country. Realizing we have blog readers that span the world, today our challenge is to make a card or any project using the colors in your country’s flag. The project can be patriotic in nature, but it’s not necessary. PLEASE when you upload your creation, tell us your Country and your flag’s colors. It’ll be fun to see how many different countries we see!!!

And when you play please be sure to link up to Mr. Linky below!

And today I have nothing new to show you — we are preparing for our youngest son’s graduation on Friday night, our oldest son and his girlfriend are coming in from OhioFriday as well, we have a lot of parties to attend on Saturday and our party is on Sunday. A busy weekend for sure.So I hope you don’t mind seeing some of my older creations — these were all from the summer of 2007 — 3 years ago – -YIKES!!! Please bear in mind these photos are 3 years old as well — I’m happy to see my photography and photo editing skills have improved a bit over the years – -LOL!! Maybe they’ll give someone a bit of inspiration!

My country is the USA and our flag colors are red, white and blue:





That last photo is a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout. And that’s it from me for today! Thank you all for stopping in, be sure to check out all the inspiration from the DT linked above and have a GREAT holiday weekend!
