4th of July

Can you be arrested for killing your computer? I'm about ready to murder mine! Would it be putercide?!
This thing is being a real pain in the you know where!!! LOL
Over on http://cricutcardzchallenge.blogspot.com/ challenge #31 is to make a card for the 4th of July. Now I have to tell ya'll right here that I almost didn't enter mine. I've already seen some of those cards entered and they put mine to shame!! You have until the 6th to enter a card so how about joining in on the fun! I used George for the wallpaper strips and the stars in the red strips. I used Everyday Paper Dolls for the bed and Stand and Salute for the flag. Mary from Cardztv had a video showing how she did her flag from this cart and it is so much easier! You cut the red and then cut a white solid piece instead of the stripes and trying to piece it together and then just cut the blue square and put a star there. Easy!!!! Then I cut a frame for the flag and put some clear plastic over the flag to make it look like a framed picture. At least that's what I hope it looks like! Don't think you can really tell from the picture. Also used a gold metal disc and some thick twine to hang my picture. Used stickers for the sentiment. Hope ya'll like it! :)
If you have time, check out the card I did for the cuttlebug and my pink stamper challenges below this post.
