365 Cards - Catch Up - Day 123 to 126

Happy 4th of July to all the American 365er's.

Well I have finally caught up on the last 3 card challenges as well as today's - Yippee.
I do apologize for the long - long post.

Day 123 - White Space

The challenge: Well, we've had a white space challenge before, but this time, Pam asked us to direct all the decorations to the blacked-out areas in the above Sketch. That means absolutely NOTHING in the white space!!
DP - Free from a magazine
Rik Rak - Stash
Stamps and Bazzill
Day 124 - Do-It-Yourself: Computer Generated
Today's challenge - Pam challenged us, to hop on our computer and Do-it-Yourself digital-style.
DP - Funky Hand - Salt & Pepper - Printed on my printer
Sentiment - Head Hunter - Printed on my printer using WordPad.
Day 125 - It's A Snap

Today's challenge: Use some sort of closure on our card - possibilities include a snap, magnet, ribbon, twine/brad combo, etc.
I cut a hinge with my Cricut using the Fabulous Finds cartridge and placed it between the DP and card on the front and back and placed a ribbon through it to close/tie - I hope this counts for the challenge.
DP - DCWV - La Creme Stack
Buttons - stash
Ribbon - Stash
Rhinestones - Kaisercraft
Sentiment - stamp unknown
C - cut on Cricut from Pooh & Friends Font and used the negative.

Day 126 - Show Your True Colours
Happy 4th of July

Today's challenge: Pam said: Today, in the USA, we are celebrating the birth of our nation. I am happy to tell you that I am in Minnesota celebrating with friends and family in my hometown. If you live in the US, then I want to see Red, White, and Blue on your card - that's it, only those colors, in honor of the American flag!!
Now, if you don't live here, but you want to use those colors, then please do. Otherwise, show some love for your home country by using your nation's colors.
I used the colour scheme - Red, White & Blue
DP - Kaisercraft - Thrill Seeker
Rain Dots - Kaisercraft
Stars - Cut on Cricut using George & Basic Shapes cartridge
HB - Thickers - American Crafts (I did get something in that is American, if only by name - LOL)
Have a great day and happy crafting.
