Blogger's challenge- Patriotic

It seems like it was just Friday yesterday, lol.  I have still not even finished visiting the whole list of players from last week and it is time for another challenge.  This week Lisa wanted us to make a patriotic card-appropriate to this time of year.  I have been struggling with my MoJo as of late and do not like this but do not really have time to re-do it so it is what it is.  Be sure to click on the blogger's challenge logo on the top right hand corner of my blog to visit all the players.  I KNOW their cards will rock as they always do!  I am tired and can't wait to hit the pillow. 

Stamps: Service and Sacrifice
Paper: Night of Navy, Pacific Point (love that this color is back) Real Red and Whisper White.
Ink: Pacific Point and Real Red
Other: star punch, white gel pen, markers, tool kit

Hope you have a wonderful Friday--TGIF!!!!

I think this is a wonderful card. It perfectly fits the sentiment. Hopefully it'll look better to you in the morning.

Very Nice MaryJo, I like how you did the background paper like waves of a flag. Sometimes we are just to hard on ourselves, I struggled this week with my card for the DT that I'm on.
Happy 4th!

We are our worst critics- I think you did a great job on the challenge- love the white gel pen accents and the star cut-out. Hope you have a fun and safe 4th!

This turned out lovely Mary Jo! It's a wonderful design! I'm so glad that Pacific Point is back too! PS. I'm with you...bring back those lazy days of Summer! We are really trying to do that here!
