Three Cheers for the Red, White, & Blue

Well today's challenge at notimetostamp is use of red, white, and blue and although you don't have to be patriotic...I chose to since Monday is our Memorial Day and our Canadian friends had last Monday as Victoria Day. My phrase is a Denami stamp which I used denium colored ink on and along with my Nesties label 2 dies, a bit of polka dotted paper and ribbon from good old Mike it was a piece of cake.Put a little bling on the stars and in each corner.Hmm did I say piece of cake?? Well that reminds me,
my neighbor is going out of town for the weekend and he asked me to keep an eye on his place and I assured him I would pay extra attention to the fridge so he better make sure it was well stocked.He thought I was kidding and well I guess I was but if I have a sudden urge for something like ice cream I have his key.
Hope you all have a great weekend. I have no plans except to finish my gardening and that's a big job. Happy Memorial Day to all us Yankees .Don't you think that the song "God Bless America" should be the national anthem??? I do because it seems like everyone knows all the words to it better then the Star Spangled Banner. Just my opinion.

This is AWESOME Pat ... you did a wonderful job!!! LOVE the polka dots!!
I agree with changing the anthem or maybe we can have two ... I like the original but God Bless the USA is more up to date!! I'm with ya sista!!
We can do much this holiday weekend either with Mark's risk of infection so it will be a quiet holiday! I'm headed outdoors right now to try and get the picnic area cleaned up and plant my impatients. Enjoy your gardening!!!

Love this card Pat. The colors are so beautiful. I agree that God Bless America should be the national anthem but then we would have all the people having a fit about the word God.Have a great weekend. Mary L Schreiber

What a Fabulous Card! Excellent use of the red, white and blue! I'm usually so-so with polka dots, but yours are perfect. Hope you get your gardening done. I need to weed but have been putting it off so that they're all here when I do finally start.
