ABC Challenge - U is for............


First of all I would like to congratulate the newest member of the ABC design team Fiona, who gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on Saturday. She is taking a break from the dt for now but will return to us soon.

This week at the ABC Challenge we have reached the letter "U" and seeing as it's American Independence Day on Saturday we have opted for the theme "U.S.A."
You could opt for red, white and blue, stars and stripes or just make something that depicts what U.S.A means to you.

For my card I've tried to use mainly American products.
The stamp is from the Greeting Farm and this has been paper pieced. All the papers are from DCWV and a kit that I purchased from Costco last year.
The sentiment and chipboard shapes are also from DCWV. The chipboard letters are from a Brenda Pinnick kit and the ribbon is from Cosmo Cricket.
The brads are from my very large stash of brads lol!

This week is the first Anniversary of the ABC Challenge blog and we will be offering prizes for people picked out by each member of the design team and one person will be offered a place on the team. I hope you can join us in our celebrations at the ABC challenge this week, I look forward to seeing your creations.

Happy 4th of July to all my American followers!
