Showing Your Patriotic Spirit

I'm pleased to share that I am this month's Guest Design Team Member at Heart 2 Heart! It really is an honor to be on board with all the talent and inspiration happening at H2H!

The first challenge for July is: Freedom - show us your patriotic spirit!

Just so happens that Fourth of July is my favorite holiday! Each year we host a {large} bbq picnic with all the best red-white-blue spirit we can muster ... and that's alot!

Making the invitations is just part of the fun I have preparing for the big day. Here is the 2012 edition:

The stars were cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge using 1/10th increments.
Stamps: "American Celebration"
Holiday Red and Outdoor Denim inks
Daisy White cardstock.
I'd love for you to join us over at Heart 2 Heart for one or all this month's challenges. It's so easy to follow along. A new challenge is posted every Monday with a blast of super fireworks-like inspiration from the design team. You have until the last Saturday of the month to link your art to any or all of July's challenges.
Check out Heart 2 Heart right here:
