Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Here I am back to blogging and posting. Sorry I have not visited many friends commenting the past few days.  My monitor died a slow death but finally gave it up altogether.  Off to Best Buys with my DH this morning and he bought me a new model bigger and better. Isn't he the greatest???

To get into the spirit of things, I made this patriotic card using Meljens "Patriotic Bear" using red, blues, and white with a bit of sparkle and shine.
Challenges:
Meljens Designs: Challenge is Glitter, Shimmer and Shine. Hope you can see the Glitter, Shimmer and Shine on the hat, fireworks, flourishes and sentiment.
Play Date Cafe: Use Baby Blue, Navy, and Cherry Red-see graphic. Think my colors are close  enough.
Kaboodle Doodles: Challenge is Dress for Success. Isn't this bear ready for success?
Craft Your Days Away: Challenge is Red, White, and Blue
Supplies:
Digital Image: Meljens Designs
Sentiment Stamp: Verve "American Hero"
Ink: Versamark
Ranger Gold Embossing Powder
Papers: Navy, Blue, Red CS from Collection, Copic X-Press It Blending Card for printing image
Copics: RV00, E000,00,30,31,33,34,35,B21,24,26
Red and Black Glaze Pens
Sakura Clear Star Pen, Gold Glitter Jelli Pen.
Gold Pilot  Marker Pen

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day!
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
