Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge - Red, White, and Blue

HI there...and happy Memorial Day weekend to all my readers from the USA. I am sure many of you have picnics or parades in your plans this weekend. I know we do! I always love to start my gardening this weekend too. Actually I started yesterday...pulled all my weeds in my flower garden bed. Now I need to decided what the plant this year...might change it up from my normal impatients. Although with the way the rain has been this spring...I am thinking maybe I should go with water lilies...lol.

Anyway...today is a brand new challenge for you over at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi challenge. This time we challenge you to create a project using Red, white, and blue...and of course a Sweet 'n Sassy Digi! Colors are in honor of Memorial Day...but it doesn't have to be a patriotic card. Well I went patriotic...with Cocoa of course!

I wanted to try a different LO for this card. I pulled out the sketches from the last Sketches call from Papercrafts magazine, and thought this one looked fun. At first I didn't' like the way it turned out, and more and more I really think it is fun. I was ultimately trying to stray from my norm...lol. Anyway....I started with the adorable Patriotic Cocoa Digi, and colored with watercolor crayons. Then I added some stickles to the red stripes and the stars. Next, I fussy cut and layered him onto the blue circle. All the PP are from a stack I purchased over 9 years ago. I still have sooo much of it left...lol. So I am slowly starting to use it up. I cut circles all an inch bigger then the last. I layered them onto the blue PP, and then onto a white CS base. Last I added the little sticker letters. Like I said before, not my normal LO type, but I really like the way it turned out.

Now head on over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog, and see what the other ladies have come up with for your inspiration. Then grab a SNSS digi, and play along! Can't wait to see what you come up with! Have a great Memorial Day weekend...and Thank you to all our troops!
