Red White & Blue @ Diva's

Hello my lovely blog friends I hope all is well in your corner of the world.
A very happy Independence Day to my friends across the pond.
I'm back  today with a brand new challenge at
and as today is Independence Day Rebekah has gone all

Red White & Blue

I've used a stamp that I've been dying to colour up for ages! Tracy Chapstamp, (the names are as fabulous as the images) from the fantabulous
Kenny K Downloads

The papers are from Bo Bunny 6x6 Liberty pad and the big blue star matt is from their 'Noteworthy' set of the same Liberty collection. I coloured my star pins in to match with Copic markers and the 'Celebrate' was cut on my Cricut (lol how did I cope without it!)

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this challenge and some gorgeous inspiration from the Diva's.

That's all from me today but I'll be back tomorrow with a new card for MAWTT.
Thanks for your visit and any lovely comments, I'm a bit busier at work now the 'summer' has technically arrived but I will do my best to get to visit soon.

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
