Paper Playtime Challenge #2


I have been in a slump the past week and made nothing except 3 sunflowers...and that only because I was playing around with my new cart (Walk in my garden)..found it at Michaels for $19.99 (!!!!) They are putting a lot of Cricut on clearance, deals to be found so get over there and check it out.

Anywho....this week's challenge over at Paper Playtime (blog hosted by the lovely and talented Janis of Pause Dream Enjoy) is  "In thy face I see Honor, Truth, & Loyalty."   I knew I wanted to incorporate God but I wasn't sure how. I found inspiration over at Alex's blog You Had Me At Craft ... after seeing her card and reading her post for this challenge I knew what I wanted to do.  To me, the cross represents honor, truth and loyalty and our freedom is found at the cross.
So I set out to make it. Naturally didn't have any crosses but the "t" from A Child's Year was good enough after a wee modification lol  The rest of the cuts are from Independence Day cart. All cut at 3".  That flag is cute! All the perfect little stars it leaves behind can be used for something else I'm sure. My cat Lucy is currently wearing most in her fur right now... she insists on sitting in my lap while I'm at the craft table. She needs a raincoat.

So head over to Paper Playtime and join in the fun. This week's Queen was Mary of Cardz tv.  Haha we had Queen Mary this week, who else can say that? LOL  I just love everything she does!

Happy Tuesday!
