Fun-Day Friday Challenge #94 - Red, White and Blue

Hey guys! Welcome back :) As you are reading this, I am recuperating from a spinal injection. Unfortunately, they are a part of my life. I am thankful they help me to be able to function. Although I will admit I am tired of feeling like a pin cushion as of late. I've been having a lot of injections that ultimately are just covering up a larger problem. Something I will have to work through.

I've shared this with you so you know what is happening. I have not been able to post as many projects or take part in as many challenges as I would like to. Once my team and I get this figured out I am hoping to be able to focus on my creativity. I have found my crafting, especially coloring images, to be very calming. If anyone reading this has back problems, you realize how much your back is connected to everything you do. Any small thing I can do to help the pain is wonderful :)

Enough with the boring stuff, let's get onto our super awesome challenge!!

I hope you enjoyed my project this week. I had a lot of fun coloring this image and making my own patterned paper using the star stamp. I was super excited to use 3 Twenty Crafts stamps!! These stamps are made by our fearless DT creator (and my BFF) Jo Williams. She is hoping to get her stamp line out again to the crafty universe later this year. If you would like more information, please contact Jo via her blog.


  1. I absolutely LOVE this card! I have always liked red/white and blue together and then the pop of color really adds to it. This image is pretty funny in itself... and I love the homemade background!!! SO happy that you are enjoying 3 Twenty Crafts stamps! It makes me smile every time I see someone using them. I hope you are feeling better and having a good weekend! Miss you!
