Penny Black Saturday Challenge #55 & Our Creative Corner

Hope everyone had a Happy 4th of July. We've had a great weekend here in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Personally, I think the weather has been perfect... mostly sunny and in the 70's. It's heading into the low 80's today.

Not only has the weather been perfect, but I've been off work since Thursday. Four days off is a wonderful thing! I've enjoyed checking out (and participating in) some different challenges. Yesterday, I posted a card for
Friday Sketchers and today, besides Penny Black Saturday Challenge #56, I'm posting to Our Creative Corner. Both challenges were color challenges.... Red, White and Blue in honor of the 4th of July.

The image I used is from Penny Black's new "purrfect day" transparent set. The kitty is actually holding a balloon but I didn't ink the balloon and added the flag instead. I used three dies from Nestabilities Small and Large Octagons and the EK Success Scallop Diamond punch. "Happy Birthday America!" is from Ann-ticipations stamped in Brilliance "Mediterranean Blue". The paper, flag and ribbon are all from stash. Oh, and there is a touch of blue Spica glitter pen.

It's been a "purrfect" weekend. Enjoy the rest of the day. Thanks for looking and come back again.

Cheers, Judi
