Happy Canada Day! I'm so not Canadian, but I don't feel like you have to be a part of some group to wish someone a good day... Every year on certain holidays, I'll answer the phone and say, "Happy (insert holiday here)!" Invariably, at least one person on the other end will respond, "I'm not a ___ (mom/dad/grandparent, etc.)" or "I don't celebrate ___" SO WHAT? It's not much different than me saying "Happy Friday," is it? If I were wishing someone a happy birthday or anniversary or graduation on the wrong day, that would be one thing. A holiday? Stop trippin'! Yes, ranting... Sorry!
Anyway, just in time for Canada Day and Fourth of July, Sara chose Stars and Stripes for the new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability! Don't think you have to try to make something patriotic; I see projects all the time with these two elements on them that have nothing to do with national pride. Go look, the DT and GDT Melissa Sackman have created a mix of cards that are all fabulous! (And a big congrats to Sara for making the Create with TLC DT!)
If you choose to play along, you have until 10 p.m. EST on July 14 to link your project at Guylou's Inimitability. If you win, you'll get a Guest Design Team member spot plus a gift certificate to pick up some of G's awesome digis! You might even pick Chuck and Sparkler which I used on my card below! (My Chuck has been slightly altered; the original is holding an American flag in the raised hand.)
I'm thinking of throwing a sentiment on this card, but I still don't know what I want it to say. I want something summer-y since that's what sparklers make me think of. When I was a kid, I used to love trying to draw things with them!
Challenges: Stamp Something - Digi Day, Craft Us Crazy - Summer, Digi Doodle Shop - Anything Goes, Southern Girls - Childhood Memories
