Uncle Sam...Is that You?? - BBTB Challenge




Happy Monday Everyone!!! Okay, in case you don't already know...I love anything red, white and blue....This week Regina from over at the Bitten by the Bug site asked us to use the sweet little elephant from Zoobaloo and make a project.....for some reason when I read her email I thought right away of making him patriotic!! So, I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the hat.....I turned the magician's hat into Uncle Sam's hat and added a star brad. The ovals are from George, the stamped sentiments are from Kim Hughes' stamp set called America the Beautiful which I purchased at Cornish Heritage Farms, the papers are Basic Gray, DCWV and The Paper Studio....for a little final detail I added some Rain Dots for his eyes, dew drops in red, and a tiny yo yo with a dab of ribbon and a safety pin.....oh and I distressed it all with cats eye chalk ink in chestnut roan. By the way, this is another square card. Don't forget to pop over to the BBTB site and take a look at all the other design team's creations......WOW.....and also, Regina has another CONTEST going on right now.....prizes to be had!!!! THANKS for dropping by and have a wonderful day!!

Pin It!
