Stars and Stripes with the Pride

Stars and Stripes with the Pride

Hello and thanks for stopping by my den today. The Pride has been pouncing around and creating some awesome 4th of July inspirations for you.
For the month of July our challenge to play around with was Stars and Stripes!
I'm very patriotic. I love the 4th of July and believe in what our Country was founded on....Faith in God.
As I was pouncing around ideas in my head I came across a cutting file from PPbN called Independence Day. It was perfect for my Stars and Stripes theme.
Add a little Trendy Twine of Blueberry and Berry Red what a combo I came up with.
All of the paper piecing is hand colored with my promarkers. I just love to color and it is a great stress reliever.
I added some cute little star buttons to the ribbons and there is even a heart button in the center of the star on the hat.
The one little bear is holding a pom-pom made of Trendy Twine. I threw in some Prima flowers with card stock sticker centers and I have a set that is worthy of gracing my scrap book page. Can't wait to use it!

If you happened upon my blog by chance start at the beginning with our fearless Alpha Elsa 
Next in line is Bon 
Pounce on over and see what she has been up to!
Thanks for dropping by and have a safe and Happy 4th of July!

This is adorable Margaret! I love to color too, but I really need to learn it better - I think I still color like I did when I was young :)
