Sweet Stampin' - Stars and Stripes

This week over at Sweet Stampin' our challenge to you is Stars and Stripes. I have gone with the traditional Red White and Blue, but you can choose any colours you like, as long as you have stars and stripes on your project (and something stamped, of course). 
Pop on over to Sweet Stampin' and see the colourful creations from the rest of the team. 

We are sponsored this week by Stamp Fairy who very generously donated an image to each design team member. This little cutie is called Mimi Stars. Also, our monthly sponsor, The Ribbon Girl has a voucher to give away to a lucky winner.

The papers I have used are from LOB. Come on ... you want to know, don't you? 
What is LOB? A new paper company! 
No! it's my 'Left Overs Box' of course. You know when you use a piece of 12 x 12 and you have a bit left over? Well that bit gets neatly cut into a square (throwing away any scrappy little bits) and placed into a box with other papers that have experienced the same fate... a bit left over. 

I guess that I just could have called it my 'stash' but in the days of LOL, OMG, BTW and WTF, I think LOB sounds heaps cooler. I can hear it now! "Mum, please stop using words like 'cool'. You are so embarrassing :) 


  1. This is gorgeous Jenny. I love the sweet image with her pretty paper Pieced dress. The LOB papers are wonderful!!
    I hope you have a good weekend

  2. Don't ya know, being embarrassing is part of a mom's job description.

    Wonderful card! I love the colours and her dress is fab.

  3. Love it, both the card and the LOB. I have a box exactly the same and even though I try to go to LOB first the amount of paper/card in it never seems to go down!

    Have a good weekend.

  4. Love this card, Jenny! Like the LOB, too - I've even tried putting the leftovers into little cello bags and matching them with other bits in the LOB. And that's as far as I've got... keep forgetting to actually use 'em. Hugs, Tracey x

    P.s doesn't LOB sound a bit like Lobotomy!?!?! I could do with one of those too!!! :)

  7. Your card is adorable and I really like how you layered up the stars, nicely done! Hey, do you remember the bookmark you sent me awhile ago? I still have it (thanks again) and used it as the inspiration to make another one the other day. Just wanted you to know I still love it and appreciate the time and thought you put into it for me.
