Now onto this weeks challenge
Now you don't have to make something to do with USA or a Country in mind as there are many reasons you  could have lots of stars and i know Stripes can be a favourite with Male cards. So let your imagination run wild and we look forward to being inspired by you all as we where last week.

We are sponsored by BUGABOO STAMPS  who kindly allowed the team to play with some images

winner will receive 7 images of their choice

So lets me introduce you to our new GDT for the next 3 months

My name is Cindy Messer and I live in TX with my wonderful husband of 12 years and my two beautiful kiddos.  I'm blessed to be a stay-at-home mom.  Before becoming a mom I worked for JPMorgan as a staff accountant. 

 I've been crafting in one form or another since I was little.  My mom taught me to sew, crochet, embroider and counted cross stitch.  My true love has got to be papercrafting though.  I was invited to a friend’s Stampin’ Up party and from then on I was hooked.   I love to make cards, mini albums and home d├ęcor projects.

  I design for the Cut It Up challenge blog and Scrapbook Blessings Club blog.  I’m guest designing for Meljen’s Designs for July.   And I’m super excited to be guest designing for Crafty Catz challenge blog for the next 3 months.  You can visit my blog at

(who is also staying for another 3 months)
