Patriotic Blog Hop

Welcome to the July 13th Patriotic Blog Hop hosted by Cricut Chirp!  If you're just joining the hop, make sure to start back at the beginning HERE.  If you got here from Sandy's blog, then you're in the right place!  We hope that you enjoy hopping along with us as much as we enjoyed putting our projects together for you.  Be sure you read all the way through, as I've got blog candy at the end!!!

Since I have been part of a military household for the past 8 1/2 years, it was natural for me to join this hop!  I made this card for an issue of Ready Set Create magazine and knew it would be perfect.
The image was a digital stamp I was provided with for the magazine issue.  I colored it using Crayola colored pencils, then I used Stickles in Candy Cane and Star Dust.  I inked the edges of the card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Barn Door and Faded Jeans.  Once the Stickles were dry, I adhered them to the front of the card using pop dots.  I LOVE the way the card turned out!!!  I think it's perfect for a 4th of July card or for a military holiday to let a military member know how much their service is appreciated.

Here's the full hop lineup in case you get lost:

Ashley <= YOU ARE HERE!
Suzanne <= GO HERE NEXT!

Now for the blog candy!  I'll be giving away the Circle of Honor patriotic stamp set from Paper Smooches to one lucky poster!!!  To be eligible to win, please leave me a comment below along with a way to contact you.  You don't have to become a follower, although I'd love it it you would!  Any comment without contact information will be ineligible for the drawing.  I'll use random.org to select a winner and will leave the comments open through Monday, July 15 at noon.  The winner will be posted Monday afternoon by 5 pm Central time and will have until Friday, July 19 to contact me.  Thanks for stopping by!
